2015 Dodge Charger Hellcat Does a Burnout as Break-In Procedure

Remember that 2015 Chevrolet Corvette that did a one-minute burnout straight out of the showroom? It was only a matter of time until somebody pulled a similar stunt using Hellcat muscle and here we are, talking about it.

The clip below brings us a 2015 Dodge Charger Hellcat that plays the burnout card as some sort of a break-in procedure. The white muscle sedan had under 50 miles on the clock at the time when it roasted its rear tires.

While the burnout took place late last month, we can follow the brief history of the car, as we got a second video. This was uploaded earlier this week and shows the 707 HP Dodge using its blown 6.2-liter V8 to bake a series of donuts.

Of course, the second feat has a story too, as the Charger was “slaying tires” since its Pirelli P-Zero were almost gone after three weeks of use abuse.

At this point, you might be wondering what will happen to that V8 later on in its life, given its rough childhood. Well, the answer also seems somewhat similar to that we received in the case of the Corvette.

Like the Z06, this Hellcat is owned by folks who work in the tuning industry. To be more precise, the Charger belongs to Classic Daily, which describe themselves as “a small custom car business based in Mid-Michigan, specialized in custom engine swaps.”

We’re talking about stuff such as an LS1-powered E28 5-Series. So yes, this means that Hellcat V8 might undergo surgery in the future. Until then, you can check out its grunt in the two clips below.
