Jay Leno's 600 HP ethanol CorvetteTake a look at Jay Leno's custom corn-burning C6 Corvette.
^M00:00:01 [ Music ] ^M00:00:05 >> It used to be if you came to SEMA looking for a lean green car you were a fool, but that's changing as so much of the auto industry is. Check out this C6RS Corvette done for Jay Leno by Pratt & Miller. This guy does 600 horsepower using E85 ethanol; so it's burning corn liquor but doing it in a brutal way. You've got an 8.2 liter V8, made it up to a T-56, it's been blueprinted going out to 18's and 19's on some newly styled BBS wheels, a Corsa exhaust system, an Arvin Meritor dynamic ride control rig, you see a control knob for that on the interior console, and all the usual trick stuff; the carbon fiber, the bill at this, the machined that. This is a very hot ride using a very green fuel definitely part of the changing trend of green power and horsepower that we're seeing here at SEMA.
