From Comedy To Car Care: Jay Leno Launches Auto Care Brand

The renowned "car guy" and TV show host partners with AP51 on a product line that he uses on his own cars.

jaylenoautocareLegendary comedian, world-renowned car guy and former host of the “Tonight Show,” Jay Leno is expanding today into the world of automotive care in a significant way with the launch of his brand, Jay Leno’s Garage – Advanced Vehicle Care. Inspired by the iconic style, standards and identity of Leno and his ever-expanding collection of automobiles and motorcycles, the brand will include products that are used on his cars and have helped him win multiple Concours-level car show awards.

For the past eight years, Leno and his detailing team have worked hand-in-hand with product engineers and chemists to develop easy-to-use formulations that offer world-class shine and protection. There’s a certain bond that is developed between driver and vehicle when you focus on cleaning, protection and preservation, Leno noted. “When you fix something with your hands, it gives you a sense of accomplishment. A sense of self worth. Then, when you actually get to drive and enjoy the fruits of your labor, the work becomes worth it.”

Partnering with AP51 LLC, Leno’s formulas are available for purchase now through lenosgarage.com. The entire offering of vehicle care products will eventually grow to include waxes, soaps, cleaners, protectants, dressings and accessories, but launched on Black Friday with a seven-piece vehicle care kit that includes a wash, cream wax, quick detailer, tire and trim dressing, wax and dressing applicator pads, along with an extra-plush microfiber towel. The kit retails for $59.99.

“Being excited is an understatement,” said Jeremy Porrazzo of AP51. “We’ve poured our blood, sweat and tears into formulating products that meet Jay’s standards. It was a tough bar to reach. Most car guys would only dream of showing their beloved baby at a show like Pebble Beach’s Concours d’Elegance, but Jay has upward of five cars in his collection that have not only shown, but won at that event.”
