Jay Leno is to classic cars what Conan is to late night shows. Leno, with his wallet fat with NBC-cash and years of car collecting, has the resources needed to mix the classic with the new to come up with some noteworthy vehicles, the most recent of which is a compact 1924 Bentley race car. Leno and his team added modern twin turbochargers to the Bentley’s classic 8-liter blocks to create a 400-horsepower vehicle that is worthy for the road, track, and showroom. Even without the extra air blowing over its beefed up engine, the car from 1924 is one fantastic-looking ride with nearly the entire front half of the convertible being covered in a shiny sheet of chrome.
