Jay Leno takes a look at the Hennessey Venom GT - Click above to watch the video after the break

Well, lookie what's rolled into Jay Leno's Garage: the 2011 Hennessey Venom GT. John Hennessey, the man with his signature on the back of the comely supercar has even stopped by the talk show host's hallowed precincts to discuss his latest project.

Despite being what amounts to a ground-up rethink of the Lotus Elise/Exige, the twin-turbo Chevrolet LS9-powered creation manages to weigh-in under 2,700 pounds. This, despite the fact that with 1,200 horsepower on tap, all of the ancilliary systems had to be beefed up substantially.

There's good dialogue between the two gearheads about everything from the car's specifications to philosophical discussions about car handling, along with on-track footage and the chance to hear the car fire-up indoors, which is itself worth the price of admission. Click through to the see it all for yourself.
