Sometimes, we often catch ourselves imagining what it must feel like to be Jay Leno. No, we’re not interested in how he gets all of these celebrities to appear on his show - okay, maybe a little - but more so because, as we all know, there’s not a lot of people in this world that can boast of having a similar car collection as the one the comedian has.

But out of all his cars - yeah, there’s a lot of ’em - the EcoJet is one of those that doesn’t fail to illicit drools from all of us. Powered by a Honeywell LT101 jet turbine engine that produces over 750 horsepower and 700 lb/ft of torque while churning out 48,000 rpm while using biodiesel as fuel.

Recently, Jay Leno brought his EcoJet to the All GM Show in Van Nuys, California where it was, as expected, one of the stars of the show. Check out this video of the EcoJet’s appearance at the show, courtesy of our buddies over at ConcoursBlog.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Great. All the advantages of a helicopter that gets 2 miles per gallon, without the, you know, tedious flying bit.

Always thought that was a cool car, and glad to see it ended up in the hands of someone that appreciates unique automobiles.

I’m sure all those greenie projects Jay has tacked onto his otherwise sensible garage have a payback period of thirty to sixty years. He just does that crap to play along.
