Corvette Of The Day: Jay Leno’s 2007 Pratt & Miller Corvette C6RS
Jay Leno's 2007 Pratt & Miller Corvette C6RS
The car featured here today is a rare Pratt & Miller Corvette C6RS that was unveiled at the 2007 SEMA Show. Jay Leno worked with Pratt & Miller, the engineering firm that builds and races C6.R Corvettes, to create a modified Corvette Z06 that can run on E85 ethanol.
Together, they worked on turning a road-going C6 Corvette Z06 into a road-going version of the C6.R. They put in a massive 8.2-liter V8 that was designed by Katech, a racing engine expert. The engine flex-fuel capacity which means it can run on E85 and was rated to produce 600 hp and 600 lb-ft (813 Nm) of torque, which were very impressive numbers at that time.
