The owner of this car made it out of the fire. He also returned to his flaming car to get a beer. I hope that gives you an idea about how truly special this burnout is.
For reasons beyond my explanation, I am somewhat obsessed with the Pilbara, the big chunk of desert in Western Australia where much of the country’s mining goes on. Here is a slice of life from this chunk of money desert.
Last weekend, I took a trip to the Pontiac Silverdome, the abandoned Michigan stadium parking lot housing thousands of cheating Volkswagen diesels. As I filmed the sea of disgraced automobiles, a Dodge Challenger decided to rip some smoky burnouts.
Remember when Mercedes and McLaren were friends? Jalopnik remembers. We’re still in love with the deep rumble of the SLR McLaren’s supercharged V8 and more importantly, its penchant for nuking tires.
Hoonigan hosted a Supra Club Day recently with an unbelievable collection of Supras, and as one does at a place called the “Donut Garage,” they killed some tires. If you love Supras, prepare to go nuts. This video has more Supras than I’ve ever seen in my life, much less in one place at the same time.
Hell has officially frozen over. The evil forces of the world have taken over. The universe has made its anti-fun stance known, culminating in the $3,000 fine lobbied against Australian Supercars driver Chaz Mostert for doing a sick burnout that would make every hoon in Australia shed a single tear of glee.
Have you heard about this new car, this 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon? It has over 9,000 horsepower and everyone who drives it dies immediately, except for Richard Rawlings. That’s quite a machine! Amid all that hoopla, it’s easy to forget the humble Dodge Challenger Hellcat and its paltry 707 HP. This video will make…
Confession time: I never did a burnout until my late twenties. I finally had a manual car, and I embarrassingly had to ask one of my friends how to smoke its tires. Fortunately, Engineering Explained put together a highly detailed step-by-step guide to smokin’ the meats so you never have to ask that question yourself.
If there’s a drift version of running the gauntlet, this is it. Two close barriers. Plenty of curves. No room for error. Another car out there with you. Let’s drift.
Doing a burnout is about the most knuckle-dragging thing you can do in a car short of jump it while running from revenoors. That’s probably why it’s so satisfying to see one shot with a $40,000 Flir T1K thermal camera.
The Suzuki Mighty Boy is a teeny-tiny pickup made for Japan’s super-small Kei class of cars. What do you get when you swap an LS V8 engine into one? Burnouts! Burnouts for days.
With today’s news that the Chevrolet SS is laying down its final set of elevenses into the sunset after this year, we felt it appropriate to celebrate the true life and times of the Chevrolet SS—in tire smoke.
Burnout the rainbow, my friends. Tires specifically made to emit voluminous clouds of candy-colored smoke are a glorious thing.
A Ford Mustang just can’t help raising a ruckus, can it? At least this time the egregious tire-shredding was for a good cause, instead of straight for an innocent crowd of bystanders.
There are massive clouds of smoke, and then there’s this burnout—which is even bigger. Best of all, the truck doing it is as cool as its cloud of tire smoke is huge.
This is the burnout equivalent of a mic drop. No burnout will ever top a burnout that actually burns. With flames. On fire!
When things look their darkest and the future seems bleak, there is but one thing that can save us: burnouts. Do burnouts. Lots of burnouts. Burnouts for America.
Project cars never truly leave—they stay with us forever. (Usually in the form of oil stains, in my experience.) But sometimes, life happens and forces you to part ways. It’s best to go cherish your work while you still have it. I’m talking, of course, about ripping ultra-huge burnouts, as this 1991 Nissan Skyline…
It’s Election Day in America! Get out there and vote if you haven’t already. Burnouts in front of your polling place are highly encouraged.
