Leno was at the wheel of a 2019 Aston Martin DB11 AMR during his January 5 video.

"I'm a huge fan of this brand. I always call Aston Martin the most seductive of all of the carmakers because that's really what it does to you," the former late night show host said, glaring at the DB11. He added: "Extremely comfortable, sort of Rolls-Royce level interior with the leather, the wood and all of that."

If you're impressed by this car video, there's a lot more where that came from on his channel. Leno reportedly has 286 different vehicles in his collection, according to his Wikipedia profile, 169 of which are different model cars.

"I love the fact that it's still a small English company. It's not part of something else or using somebody else's name," he said, before taking it for a spin.

Aside from those that he owns, he's also producing a number of reviews working with representatives from the manufactures – just like this video below.

The featured car for this week has a powerful V12 twin-turbo engine and can reach a maximum speed of 208mph, with 630bhp.

The YouTuber appears to have a soft spot for this 2019 model as well, claiming that it's not the type that the owner's spouse is going to complain about. For those interested in buying one, you can pick up the vehicle for around $241,000, depending on the spec selected – per edmunds.com.

He added: "This sort of does everything it wants. It's a real car that you can drive really hard, push it really hard, but still be extremely comfortable for long trips and things of that nature. I mean, I just find them to be fantastic cars."

Whether or not the comedian will be adding any fresh Aston Martins to his collection in the near future remains to be seen, although this video would suggest that it's highly likely.
