To demonstrate that red-blooded force blends effectively with a bit of green, Leno cooperated with Pratt and Miller - the designing organization that constructs and battles C6.R Corvettes - to build up an adjusted Corvette Z06 that is equipped for running on E85 ethanol. It was revealed at the 2007 SEMA Show. 

More than only a transformation of the stock LS7 motor to E85 capacity, Leno's option fuel supercar is controlled by a custom, 8.2L (500-cubic-inch) all-aluminum little shut V-8 that siphons out roughly 600 drive and 585 lb.- ft. of torque.

The motor is worked around a custom aluminum chamber obstruct that was CNC-processed from a solitary square of billet aluminum. And keeping in mind that the chamber heads, admission framework and dry-sump oiling framework are stock LS7 segments, the motor - which has bigger bore and stroke measurements than the 7.0L (427-cubic-inch) LS7 - utilizes an irregular responding get together, including a fashioned steel crankshaft, manufactured bars and produced cylinders. Katech Engines, the organization that fabricates motors for the Corvette C6.R dashing project, built up the motor.

A C6.R-style cascade hood front bumper louvers, rockers and lower grille opening further characterize this exceptional Corvette - and the entirety of the vehicle's front-end boards are made of carbon-fiber, including custom brake air pipes directed through the front bumpers. With the entirety of its body changes, Leno's C6RS is 1.6 inches more extensive than stock. 
The C6.R's - and creation Corvette's - efficiently styled bodywork is intended to cut productively through the breeze, which assists improve with powering mileage. 
The race-prepared look of the vehicle is upgraded with a group of four of BBS wheels that element hustling type locking focus center points. The fashioned aluminum 18-inch front haggles inch back wheels ride on Michelin P295/30ZR18 and P345/30ZR19 tires, separately. 
Adding validness to the vehicle's custom bodywork was the inclusion of Pratt and Miller. The organization assumed the undertaking of creating Leno's Corvette into a road going copy of the racecars, which included introducing or manufacturing a large group of novel parts, including: 
A custom DeWitt high-limit radiator with double cooling fans 
A carbon-fiber slam air enlistment framework 
Carbon-fiber inward bumper boards that vent sight-seeing from the motor compartment 
Brembo brakes with six-cylinder mono-square calipers in front and four-cylinder back calipers 

Dyna-Mat utilized all through the lodge and skeleton to lessen inside commotion 
While the outside and drivetrain were enlivened by the circuit, the C6RS's lodge oozes extravagance, with premium contacts and upgrades from Genuine Corvette Accessories that incorporate a two-tone move handle and boot; cowhide secured comfort armrest, stopping brake handle and boot; an inside trim unit, hustling style pedal spreads and the sky is the limit from there.
