'The Daily Show' host, SA's Trevor Noah, joins US TV legend Jay Leno for a drive in a Lamborghini Aventador S. The clip will be shown on Leno's YouTube channel called 'Jay Leno's Garage'.  

A few years ago driving home from the Cape Town CBD, I spotted a white Lamborghini Huracan (a rare sight) and immediately gave chase. 

The reason? Well, it was the first time I had seen a Huracan apart from on the internet. I managed to pull up next to the V12 supercar, peered through the passenger window and spotted none other than Trevor Noah.

I think he found my stare a tad intimidating and rightfully zoomed off in a massive V12 wail. Fast forward to 2018 and Noah is once again in the seat of a Lamborghini, this time it's the Aventador S.

You might not know this, but Noah's stepfather owned a service garage in South Africa and Trevor worked and serviced cars as a youngster. 

The supercar

The Aventador S has a top speed of close to 350km/h and its V12 engine generates 550kW which equates to a 0-100km/h sprint time of less than 3.0 seconds.
