A 1966 VW Beetle on Jay Leno's Garage

Jay Leno’s Garage is known for featuring some of the most unique and outrageously expensive vehicles in the world, so what convinced him to feature a 1966 VW Beetle? A turbocharged, sports-car engine modification might have something to do with it! Mario Markakis, the 1966 Beetle owner who built the car, says the car is rated at 250-280 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque. Many aspects of the Volkswagen have been retained, including the retro look of the car and the four-speed transmission. See how it drives in the episode of Jay Leno’s Garage below!
