The well-known former TV presenter and petrolhead fanatic does not want to have any of her cars Ferrari in his huge collection.
Jay Leno is known for a number of reasons and among them is the bond he has with cars.
He is -among other things- and a fanatical collector, owning over 300 cars, including some of the rarest in the world.
But strange as it may seem, there is no Ferrari car in his collection. Something that, as he explains, is done for reasons that have to do with Ferrari itself and its dealers in America.
He himself in occasional interviews has explained that he does not buy Ferrari, despite the fact that he likes them and knows everything about them, because treating him as a customer is unacceptable.
The problem lasts from the 90s, and is related to the many obstacles Ferrari puts in acquiring a car. In fact, as Leno says, it is unthinkable to be forced to buy two World Cups so that you have the right to choose the Ferrari you want.
He considers that in contrast to the old Ferrari, modern ones are not at all a good investment for someone who wants to make money in the future selling a used oneFerrarithe .
Also in an earlier interview he had pointed out that can not charge the workshop $ 25,000 for a job, whateverwhen other similar companies charge just $ 1,500 for the same thing.
Overall, Leno feels that Ferrari’s US dealership is reminiscent of a masochistic customer relationship. As he says, some of them like to be “beaten” and to be thankful and proud of it.
Instead, his mouth is dripping with honey for companies like McLaren or Porsche. As he says, the cooperation with the representatives there is much simpler and clearer. Leno refers to McLaren saying that he bought a car at the exact price of the “list” and they even allowed him to make as many changes as he wanted.
Something that also happens with Porsche. But its dealers Ferrari treat the customer with arrogance, something that has made him “alienate” completely with the Italian brand.
