Jay Leno says hello to the Rossi SixtySix
Apparently, Jay Leno has a ‘Corvette section’ in his garage. If that sobering fact alone isn’t enough to get your jealous juices jumping, then consider this: there’s a distinct possibility that Leno’s ‘Corvette section’ will have an additional member pretty soon. What car is this going to be?
Try the Rossi SixtySix, the same car that took two years to build and the very same one that wowed the automotive world at the EyesOnDesign event in Detroit a few months ago.
Using the classic look of the Corvette Stingray from the 1960’s and incorporating its styling cues on a C6 Corvette, the Rossi SixtySix is the ultimate manifestation of a powerful modern-day engine in a retro car’s body. The finished product is nothing short of spectacular. There are styling cues from a number of Corvette models in the 60’s with the most notable being the split-windows that originally adorned the 1963 Corvette Stingray.
Continued after the jump.
The sad thing for most of us however – not counting Leno because he can probably afford to buy Pluto – is that the sports car is going to cost somewhere around $130,000, inclusive of the tag of the C6 Corvette.
As for Jay Leno’s take on the Rossi SixtySix, well, it’s not easy to impress a car enthusiast at the stature of Jay Leno, but he seems to be thoroughly geeked with the special edition sports car. In this episode of Jay Leno’s Garage, the comedian talks with the car’s head designer, David R. who proceeds to give Leno a thorough introduction. We have to say, we haven’t seen Leno this engrossed in a car in a long time so it’s obviously good news for Rossi that he’s completely enthralled with this one.
