His Jay Leno’s Garage Youtube Channel has seemed to step up their game in the more recent episodes. The quality is pretty impressive imho.

FWIW, that's not a race car. That's a road car: The McLaren MP4-12C. You can drive it on the road here in the States.

The cost? About four Sony F65 cameras. ;)

I'd have to go with the Porsche 918.

I'll stick with my Honda Fit, 8.1L Chevy Van and Kawasaki ZX-11.

Yep, when I heard that McLaren had revived their "put-turn-signals-on-a-F1-car-and-call-it-street-legal" business, and even located their dealership here in Palo Alto, I jumped to the conclusion that there might be a sliver of a chance for a test drive. So I shaved and dressed nicely, and even managed to persuade my buddy to lend me his BMW-Z8 -- this, of course, to conceal my starving artist status. Long story short -- after they saw me peeking at the price tags for their apparel, they merely let me sit in it. I never learn.
