Jay Leno's Turbine-Powered EcoJet Concept Introduced at SEMA

Tonight Show host Jay Leno (left) and General Motors Vice President Global Design Ed Welburn introduce the turbine-powered EcoJet concept at the Specialty Equipment Market Association show in Las Vegas, Nevada Monday, October 30, 2006. The 650-horsepower (400 lb.-ft. of torque) Leno original is powered by a Honeywell LT-101 turbine engine that runs on bio-diesel fuel. The engine sits in a modified Corvette Z06 hydroformed aluminum frame with aluminum and magnesium structural and chassis components. The vehicle’s shell is an advanced construction of carbon fiber over Kevlar. (General Motors Photo/Isaac Brekken) (USA)
