Aston Martin normally wouldn’t go to so much trouble to publicize one of their cars. But since the car in question here is the new 2017 Aston Martin DB11 and the man they are trying to impress is Jay Leno, they sent a pre-production model to Willow Springs Raceway along with former Stig Ben Collins so Jay could indulge his James Bond fantasy for a little while.

It is always a pleasure to see Jay drive the latest exotic models, and a very cool treat to see the old Stiggy back. He always reminds us of Top Gear’s golden days… ah well.
