Have you ever tried to tailgate a vehicle pulling a burnout, but using your own body instead of a car? For those who haven’t, let us tell you that sitting right behind a car that’s seriously smoking its tires can be a bit of a torture.
Apparently this isn’t true for one guy in the adjacent clip, who engaged in what can only be described as a burnout shower. This was all the fault of Chrysler’s new bad boy, the 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat, which recently put on a very, very smokey show on the Portland International Raceway.

There were other two men capturing the shenanigan on camera next to him, but this guy was using his phone, so this is a clear case of pure dedication.

As for the exact events that took place there, a Black perfectly-dressed example of the Challenger Hellcat unleashed all its 707 ponies on the drag strip - the muscle Dodge has already shown it can pull a quarter mile in 11.2 seconds (10.8 on drag radials), so the aim was different here: to turn the rear Pirelli P Zeros into an eruption of smoke.

The car was manhandled by one of its close friends, SRT engineer Jim Wilder, who only followed ex-SRT CEO Ralp Gilles example. Gilles smoked the Hellcat out of a Challenger last weekend, at the Carlisle Chrysler Nationals.

Oh and by the way, the Hellcat generated so much smoke that quite a lot of the bystanders received a similar treatment, basically turning this into the muscle car version of a swimming pool.
