Ever since Gran Turismo 4, Jay Leno has had at least one of his cars included in the popular racing simulator (starting with the Tank Car), and more of his machines appears in Gran Turismo 6. They include this nose-heavy, front-wheel-drive V8-powered muscle car. Yes, that aptly describes a 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado - except Leno's is rear-wheel drive. And it has a Cadillac CTS-V race engine modified to pump out 1,070 horsepower.

For the latest Jay Leno's Garage episode, he takes his real Toronado out for a cruise and then drives the virtual one like he stole it, accruing some body damage along the way. Leno also drives the virtual supercar Mercedes-Benz designed for GT6, the AMG Vision Gran Turismo Concept that debuted at the LA Auto Show, along with the real one, which is a 1:1-scale model. The model is radio-controlled and equipped with a small electric motor, sufficient to move it on and off of auto show floors.

Head below to watch the episode, which includes a few words from GT6 creator Kazunori Yamauchi.

      Where are the Forza fans that are bushing GT for its skyline and miata line ups only. This game is genuinely awesome. It has history , much better physics in GT6; very true to life. I cant argue with Forza 5's graphics its next gen, but GT6 on a last gen console still looks great. The only reason why i choose GT6 over Forza 5 is that GT6 has a way better simulation, where as Forza feels a bit more of an arcade racer.

      For all the crap Jay Leno gets, he always has seemed like a cool down to earth guy when you consider how god damn rich he is. Im 31, and have been watching him since I was a kid, I just dont get all the Leno hate. This little web show is nice though. I have an 1967 Eldorado I am converting to real wheel drive, I am going to do something similar to what he did with the Toronado.

      Did you notice his left turn blinker was stuck on at around 1:20-1:30? Must be getting old. :)

      Not to sound like a dick, but I'm getting tired of hearing about this flub. I mean, it's cool he's a car guy and all, but so are millions of other people. They just don't have the means to assemble a massive collection like him. I've never seen anything standout about him or the way he reviews cars. /rant??

      I love the Gran Turismo series but I think it's being covered more than needed on autoblog lately. And Jay Leno has quite a collection but I really don't want to watch him on the web any more than I want to watch his bland hacky tv show. But since we're posting about Gran Turismo, anyone who doesn't want to grind the game to earn credits or pay real money for microtransactions, they made a major screw-up on the disc version that lets you sell those Mercedes Vision GT cars for 20 million credits. Google it for info on how.

        You have to click twice to watch the video, no one's forcing you. Don't click if you don't care.

          Well yeah, I specifically said I don't want to watch him, that's why I didn't click his video. That's like saying no one forced you to read my comment and reply to it. It was just there so you did.

      I think Jay needs a full blown gaming simulator after this.

        the best thing is the actual physics in this can truly compete with these simulators (if you're talking abt iRacing or rFactor)
