The EcoJet concept was unveiled at the 2006 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show. The EcoJet is the brain child of celebrity talkshow host and car collector Jay Leno.

Leno started out by sketching his vision on a napkin, from there he managed to enlist the help of GM's Advanced Design Studio in California who provided the conceptual and build design, engineering, digital design and fabrication support. The EcoJet concept was constructed at Leno's facility by his chief mechanic, Bernard Juchli.

The EcoJet's most unusual feature is its powerplant, the concept is powered by a 650 horsepower mid-mounted Honeywell LT-101 turbine engine fueled by biodiesel mounted in a modified Corvette Z06 aluminium frame. The EcoJet's Cadillac-esque body draws styling cues from modern aircraft and F1 car, and is constructed from carbon fibre and Kevlar.
