Jay Leno tests out the 2011 BMW M3 – Click above to watch the video after the break

Jay Leno has a new car in his garage today. Yes, we know... shocking, right? But, unlike many of the funny man's cars, this one is brand new and it comes from the other side of the Atlantic. We'll end the suspense – it's a bright red 2011 BMW M3. As always, the late-night comedian takes a good look at the M3 in his garage before taking it for a spin, but then something a bit different happens.

The keys to the 2011 BMW M3 are handed to race car driver Justin Bell, and he takes it and meets up with BMW Motorsport Manager Martin Birkmann and driver Bill Auberlen to compare the road-going M3 with the machines the German automaker campaigns in the American LeMans Series. We're not exactly convinced, but the crew does its best to explain why the racers and the road cars aren't as different as you might think.

Finally, Jay gets his turn behind the wheel, and... he likes its turn signals – better even than those of a Chrysler Sebring. Of course, that's not all he has to say about the M3, so why not just go ahead and click past the break to watch the video for yourself.
