The Blastolene Indy Special is a unique, specially-built car. Created from a military tank engine and a custom-made aluminium body,  it produces 810bhp @ 2800rpm and 1560 pound-feet @ 2400rpm of torque.
In 2001 a glass artist named Randy Grubb made the Blastolene Special with a Continental AV17-5B(a huge engine that weighs the same as a Volkswagen Beetle) used in a 51-ton M47 Patton Tank back in the 1950s, a Greyhound bus transmission and metal for the body. The glass blower figured he made about USD$125,000 selling it to Jay Leno to put into the extensive collection of cars he owns (84 cars and 73 motorcycles as of April 11, 2006).
The Blastolene Indy Special is a similar car that is styled after a 1950s era Indy Car.
