    The Mother of All Burnouts

    A very modified 1970 Dodge Challenger Convertible 426 Hemi doing one heck of a burnout:

    That video was made when gas was about 85 cents per gallon.

    Around 2003 I got a Bentley Arnage R for a week. This thing weighed around 6,000 lbs. (yes, 6,000 lbs.) and had a turbocharged 6.5 liter V-8 and made around 600 lbs.-ft. of torque.

    The burnout it did was better than the Challenger's in that video! I sat there digging ruts in the asphalt (literally), the amount of smoke was unbelievable and (literally) engulfed the entire are as if a tactical nuke had exploded. There were liquified stripes of rubber for about 10 yards, with the rest of the burnout (once I let off the brake) running for (seriously) 30 yards or more. It was... a-mazing!

    That's impressive. However the Challenger had racing slicks, put a pair of street tires on it and I would bet it would put the beat the Bentley in a burnout.

    THe rich guy who bought the Bentley Arnage R (you drove) after it served press service, probably wondered why his rear tires were bald at 8,000 miles. ;D
