2011 Hennessey Venom GT
Hennessey's 1,200-horsepower Venom GT is perhaps one of the most impressive American hotrods built on a British basis in the last half-century. Like the classic AC Ace was turned into a Cobra in Carroll Shelby's hands, the Lotus Exige in John Hennessey's has taken a lightweight British sports car and turned it into a world-beater--though without the racing pedigree. Jay Leno, being the car fanatic and TV personality he is, has had special access to the Venom GT.
