Autoweek interviews one of the few people in the world capable of buying three new supercars at once: Jay Leno, who just ponied up for the Mercedes SLR, Ford GT and Porsche Carrera GT. The discussion lingers on the P-car, its welcome lack of paddle shifters, its durability as compared to something like a McLaren, and Leno's perception of the Merc as a more quotidian supercar that "you can get in and out of, you can drive down the street." The Ford's value to Leno is twofold: it's partly sentimental since his greatest sporting memory is the GT40's Le Mans victory. Then there's the bargain-factor— the Ford GT is within a tenth of a second of an Enzo (which Leno does not own because it only comes with paddle shifters and no real manual), yet costs only $150,000. What a deal.
