    Interesting article by Leno... he reviews the new Mercedes/Gordon Murry supercar, but spends a significant amount of time talking about the Enzo.

    Some interesting quotes:

    "I like the Enzo, but it's like wearing a bikini on Main Street...the Enzo is good looking because it's a Ferrari, not because it's good looking. If someone said that was the new Invicta they'd say, "uh-huh, that's nice".

    "But paddle shifts are like putting your **** in a milking machine - it's more efficient but just not as much fun."

    "...no electric seat adjustment. Why do you need an electric motor anyway? If you can't reach down and manually adjust the seat, what in the hell is wrong with you?"

    I like Jay Leno. Funny guy and from Malden to boot! Seems to like cars for the right reasons and shares them with people.

    Cheers
