Jay Leno's Daytona Ride: Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Pace Car

Yes, this is the car Davey's referring to in his LA missive that outs Jay Leno on a single "Brokeback Mountain" joke. Leno will drive this customized 2006 Corvette Z06 to pace the 48th running of the Daytona 500 on Feb. 19 that kicks off the Nextel Cup racing season. The Corvette pace car is mechanically identical to the production model Z06, making it the first pace car that's powerful than the race cars that will compete in the Daytona 500 (thanks to the restrictor plates that detune the cars from 750hp to 450hp for the small track). The paint scheme has more semitones than Die Kleine Nachtmusik. Click for more pics.
