Doug DeMuro is having fairly the 2023 to this point. He simply offered his on-line automobile public sale website, Vehicles and Bids, and with the proceeds of mentioned sale purchased a Porsche Carrera GT, one of many most interesting supercars ever made and his all-time dream automobile. And but the 12 months retains getting larger and higher for DeMuro, as he was simply featured on Jay Leno’s Storage, speaking about quirky and attention-grabbing vehicles with one of the crucial well-known gearheads on the earth.
On this new episode of Jay Leno’s Storage, DeMuro brings three totally different vehicles which might be at the moment up for public sale on Vehicles and Bids, talks about them with Leno, after which Leno takes one for a drive. Among the many three vehicles are a Mitsubishi Pajero Evo, a Mazda RX-7, and an E30 BMW M3.
All three of these vehicles are fascinating vehicles from comparable durations in time and share a stunning quantity of similarities. As an illustration, regardless of being a Dakar-ready SUV, the Mitsubishi Pajero Evo can also be a homologated racing automobile, similar to the E30 M3. And the Mazda RX-7 makes use of a small displacement, high-revving engine that focuses extra on really feel and engagement than outright energy. All three vehicles are extremely cool and it’s attention-grabbing to listen to DeMuro speak about them in a really totally different medium than regular.
The E30 M3 is clearly going to be the fan favourite for these studying this however there’s good purpose for that. As a racing automobile, the E30 M3 was wildly profitable, because it was one of the crucial dominant Touring Vehicles of its time. But it surely was additionally a terrific highway automobile, with a buzzy, motorsport-derived engine, gorgeously communicative steering, and an extremely nimble chassis. There’s good purpose that the E30 M3 is commonly thought to be one of the best driving BMW of all of them. Whereas it may not be the finest, as there are a lot of totally different subjective variations of what one of the best may very well be, it’s actually within the dialog.
After they focus on the vehicles, Leno takes the Mazda RX-7 for a spin. Clearly we have been hoping for the E30 M3, particularly since I’ve by no means seen Jay Leno drive a BMW (he’s very a lot a Mercedes man, so that will have been a part of it). Nonetheless, it’s exhausting to not love an RX-7 and it was cool to see Doug DeMuro, somebody we’ve all watched turn into one of many greatest automotive personalities within the nation, hang around with oen of probably the most well-known comedians and automobile tradition icons of all time.
