Chevrolet unveiled five dramatic Camaro concepts at the annual automotive aftermarket extravaganza known as the SEMA Convention, each representing a different vision of style, personalization and performance. The Jay Leno Camaro, a race-ready, twin-turbocharged V-6 concept built for talk show host and auto enthusiast Jay Leno is one of them.

2010 Chevrolet Leno Camaro.

The Jay Leno Camaro.
Powered by a twin-turbocharged version of the 3.6L direct injected V-6 that is standard in Camaro LS and LT models, Leno’s Camaro blends high performance with surprising efficiency in a racing-ready package.

A pair of Turbonetics T-3 turbochargers blows through a custom air-to-air intercooler, force-feeding the engine about seven pounds of boost and lifting its horsepower level to about 425. That’s about 40 percent greater than stock and in normal driving (when the turbochargers aren’t making boost), there’s virtually no penalty in fuel economy over the non-turbocharged 3.6L engine.

“Jay’s Camaro offers style, performance and efficiency in a big way,” said Dewar. “It delivers the power of a Camaro SS on demand, but with the fuel economy of a V-6.”

Supporting upgrades for the turbo system include a larger-capacity Be-Kool radiator and a custom exhaust system, as well as a Centerforce-supplied clutch and pressure plate for the six-speed manual transmission. The tubing for the turbo system is powder-coated blue. The powertrain was designed to deliver consistent, controllable power for both the street and race track. In fact, road racing was a primary mission for the car during its development.

Additional vehicle also support its racing intent:
• Brembo six-piston brake package
• Pedders coil-over lowering kit
• New front fascia with custom fog lamps and integral brake cooling vents
• Air extractor-style hood

The exterior styling of Leno’s car is the most radical of all the Camaro concepts at SEMA. The front fascia and hood are one-off creations, as are the unique upper and lower grilles and the ground effects package (including a rear diffuser). The heritage-inspired vent styling in front of the rear wheels has been replaced with functional brake cooling ducts.

Forget fuel economy, I'm feeling the lighter weight V-6 with 400+ HP. And check those fogs tucked in the air dam. cooooooooooooool

Having that 3.6L direct injected would really make consumption of fuel a blast. I wonder how fast the fuel leaves the fuel tank in every minute of normal driving with this Camaro. Anyway, this car is still a powerful beast in the road. No wonder why the movie The Transformers pick this car because of it's outrageous power and speed.

When it comes to power, Camaro is the one you're looking for. Who cares about fuel efficiency, this car would really burn it all to prove it's 400+ HP. This is some monstrous car. I'm wondering that you might need to own your own fuel station with this car.
