Jay Leno always seems to lay his hands on some of the best cars – new or old – that have ever been created, so you'd think there aren't many new models that can impress the comic any more. Well after watching the latest installment of Jay Leno's Garage, the collector car king has had some time in newly updated 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish, and if we're not mistaken, he's downright giddy about it.

Leno spent a week with the Vanquish, and during his video walkaround, he has almost nothing negative to say about the British coupe, labeling it the "perfect combination" of sports car and a grand touring car, even defending it against very different cars like the Porsche Carrera GT and the Ford Shelby GT500. Starting at almost $300,000 and having a powerful V12 under its long, carbon-fiber hood, Leno notes the Vanquish is sophisticated, astounding him with how well-balanced it is between performance and comfort. Oddly enough, the only thing Leno didn't like about this particular car was its bright blue color, which is probably only a shade or two brighter than Leno's own denim outfit.

Scroll down to watch Leno give his opinion about the Vanquish and then have some real fun taking it for a spin.

      Was this the same car as on Top Gear last week? I imagine so.

      Geeze that blue color is just WRONG on an Aston. Leave the loud, obnoxious colors for Lambo.

      you know what i hate? i was at dinner at the mall and this car was sitting in the valet and i over heard one of these like 17 year olds saying "yeah my civic can go faster then that" ...my thoughts you won't do sh*t. people say why buy a car for $300,000 when a $20,000 can do everything the same. obviously don't know sh*t about cars. sorry for my "rant" but i needed to do it. and btw this car is pretty amazing love that color too. and the music that comes from the back.

          My buddy dropped his Aston Martin key. You should ask him how "scratch resistant" it is.

      How much better would this car look if the rear lights were connected like the One-77?

      Love the Swedish Racing Green, don't love that awful, ugly carbon fiber piece on the front.

      Perfect. Interior, exterior, just gets the right balance between lux and sport. Color is perfect. It\'s gross on a riced Evo, but perfect here. But Leno. This guy is on TV for a living? The video was like one of those dealership start up, exhaust, and walk-around videos on Youtube.
