Cui Niao says:

?????????????????????????????Hongqi was a symbol of politics for the era, and is also the cause why she fails in selling to mass.?

Hubert Krzemien says:

Engine looks like a copy of russian ???-41 from ZiL.?

Mark LeeMaoShengHiNoon says:

Song name @ 0:26??

The Greek Decca Millionaire says:

Chinese are so serious, yet their concentration does not translate to their products.?

i Granot says:

Wonder if the exotic nature of the car helps get it past emissions regulations??

gg gg says:

it has european style with american muscle, jay should love this car?

urbanbigf00t says:

I think that this car looks like it was derived from Soviet GAZ M13 Chaika and this might explain the Ford-like engine. Like Volga GAZ21 most GAZ's cars were styled like american cars for a good reason. The original factory was built by Ford in the 20's and GAZ's engineers studied and worked in Ford factories. Also, I'm prettty sure that GAZ lorries were produced under licence in the same Red Flag factory.?

Chad D says:

Jay spent a lot of time crapping on the guy's car which sucked. It was basically a video saying what it looked like and what it copied. That sucked because the owner is clearly a car guy and proud of his car. I thought it was a pretty interesting vehicle.?

dan cameron says:

Mr Leno, you should,ve asked what was the trans it , like C6 ( ford) or a t350(chevy). just a thought! Dano 4/5/16?

moyadapne says:

5.20secs '412 torque', "oh, ft lb". No, actually nm, so only 304 ft lb.     Did I say that out loud.?
