John Hennessey was recently on The Smoking Tire podcast so I thought I would call in and ask who the first celebrity was that Hennessey built a car for. (Click here to listen to the full podcast) Turns out it was none other than Jay Leno who had a Viper. I’m not sure exactly which Viper it was that Jay sent to Hennessey but I’m guessing it might have been this 1996 Viper GTS.
Also there is a great video after the jump of Leno Touring the Viper build factory while his car was being built and aside from a little less grey hair he looks about the same, t-shirt and all!
