Racer and fabricator Jessi Combs drives the world’s fastest car, the $2.9 million Bugatti Chiron, on Jay Leno’s Garage tonight.

Jessi was nicknamed the “fastest women on four wheels” after setting a world land-speed record of 398 mph in 2013.

Tonight, she comes face to face with one of the engineering marvels of today’s automobile world, the 2017 Bugatti Chiron.

It’s not quite up to land-speed record status, but the Chiron can do 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds with a claimed top speed of over 261 mph.

In the clip below, Jay and Jessi check out the car’s extrior and talk facts before getting in with Jay at the wheel.

The episode, titled More Power, also sees Jessi put pedal to the metal as she also gets in the driver’s seat. Meanwhile, fans also get to see Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider race a Dodge Demon — the most powerful V8 muscle car on the planet.

Jay Leno’s Garage airs Thursdays at 10pm on CNBC.
