Jay Leno Designed Eco-Friendly Supercar

By: Jeremy Gutsche (Rockstar) Nov 4, 06

You knew he made jokes, but apparently, he makes cars too.  Jay Leno and Ed Welbum (GM VP of Global Design) sketched the EcoJet on the back of a napkin, and now GM has made the sketch a reality.  The EcoJet uses bio-diesel fuel to power its 650 horsepower engine.

GM’s release noted, “What would keep a group of automotive designers up all night? ‘Tonight Show’ host Jay Leno, for starters, but not by his monologue or parade of Hollywood guests. This time it’s because the late-night talk show host invited the General Motors Advanced Design Studio to help design a mid-engine, turbine-powered supercar called EcoJet.”
