Iconic American comedian Jay Leno has revealed his review of the 2019 Aston Martin DB11 AMR, explaining why he loves showcasing vehicles from the manufacturer. 

The YouTuber, who has over 2.75 million subscribers on the video sharing platform, can often be seen reviewing and driving around in all sorts of different vehicles on their channel – with the 2019 Aston Martin DB11 AMR being showcased during an upload on January 5.

In what was his first video of the new year, Leno decided to run his viewers through the reasons why he really enjoys having Aston Martin cars feature in his content.

Jay Leno / YouTubeLeno 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.

TikTok star Nikita Crump has managed to pull off the incredible feat of living in her car, a 2012 Honda Civic, for over one year. Now, she has explained how she was able to pull it off in a new YouTube video.

Crump’s journey began in a video first uploaded on November 3, 2019 where she explained how she officially told her landlord she would be moving out of her home and into her car.

According to Crump, this wasn’t some impromptu decision and she had been spending a few months actively thinking about it before taking the plunge.

Nikita has been living in her car for over a year.

Despite having a nice house with affordable rent and good roommates, she felt moving into her car was something she “had to do.”

Since then, she has successfully spent a whole year living in her car and marked the anniversary of her first night by explaining how she is able to stay cool or warm at night.

In the backseat of her car, the YouTuber keeps a pillow and too fuzzy blankets which she uses to cover herself up.

Along with her sweatpants and sweatshirt, she is able to stay warm even in the winter months. However, occasionally she has to put a jacket on if it’s ever especially cold outside.

“In Northern California, a lot of the warmer days are still cool nights, so I’m fortunate that most nights throughout the year are totally bearable, but there’s totally been the occasion where it is hot, I am sweating and I wear as minimal clothing as I can,” she explained.

Luckily, she also has a rechargeable fan which can help her get through the night if need be despite only staying charged for one day.

In addition to just staying cool, the TikTok sensation also revealed she showers at the gym and keeps plenty of personal hygiene products inside her bag including shampoo, toothpaste, and deodorant to name a few.

Now, Crump is hitting the road and embarking on a two-month-long trip around the United States where she’ll be documenting her experiences.

The entertainer’s decision to live in her car has paid dividends, as she currently has over one million followers on TikTok.
