Jay Leno Hoons Through the Dunes in a Dakar MINIMarch 7th, 2014
Jay Leno heads into the desert of Death Valley to ride along with 2014 Dakar winner Nani Roma in his MINI All4 Racing rally car.
First, the two go out for a leisurely tour among the dunes in a production MINI Countryman. Then they climb into Roma’s $1 million rally car and tear up the giant sand dunes and the MINI is virtually unstoppable – barreling up the dunes and flying over jumps – until it gets stuck. But when Leno takes the wheel, the real fun starts and he doesn’t hold back. It seems Roma does all he can to coach Leno into not rolling the vehicle over. We call next.
