Sure, it's a sublime thing to see a really well-executed burnout. The sublimation of tire meat into noise and smoke is a ritual that pleases Velocitor, the Many-Wheeled One, God of Speed. And it's great to see one done by a factory-approved professional, like Dodge provided earlier this week.

I was out driving the 2015 Charger and, notably, the Charger SRT Hellcat, that 707 HP monster of a four-door sedan. I'm still not supposed to talk about any driving impressions just yet, but I don't see any harm in showing you just how much tires should fear this car. In fact, if you have any tires in the room with you, now would be a good time to ask them to leave.


Are they gone? Even the one on your wheelbarrow? Okay. Good:

Dodge is no dummy; Dodge understands that this act right here is, really, the primary motivation for a car like this. That's why they stuck a factory man right there in the driver's seat to do this, all nice and official-like.

Except that spin at the end. I'm not totally certain he meant to do that, but it sure looked cool.
