News Jay and David Lee talk about a special Ferrari Dino

Jay and David Lee talk about a special Ferrari Dino

Everybody knows Jay Leno, but David Lee’s not quite as well known, that is unless you’re a total car geek. David Lee’s known for being the lucky owner of one of the greatest Ferrari collections in the world. In fact, he has the keys to what is referred to as the Ferrari Big 5:  a 2014 LaFerrari, a 2003 Enzo, a 1995 F50, a 1990 F40, and a 1985 288 GTO. He even has a very rare 1987 288 GTO Evoluzione! Poor guy also has to insure a Pagani, a McLaren P1 GTR, a few Porsches and six or seven other Ferraris.

In this episode of Jay Leno’s garage, Mr. Lee brings his 1972 Ferrari Dino 3.6 Evo. This car has been reinvented top to bottom by a shop in the UK. A typical Dino had roughly 160-horsepower, but this car has well over 400-horsepower. The car has upgraded Brembo brakes, revised suspension and the beauty is that everything that was done to this car is bolt-on-bolt-off.

Listen to the guys, and the Dino’s engine, and enjoy carguys doing what they do best. Here’s a challenge: Can you make who David’s talking about at the very beginning?
