The girl is driving a Procharged Pontiac G8 that’s delivering 700 hp at the rear wheels. During the recent 2013 Bayou Drag event in Houston, which was held at Hennessey's Lonestar Motorsports Park, the V8 under the hood decided to give up, with the girl finishing the drag race in a cloud of smoke.

As a spectator explains in the video, the vehicle was running a stock block that had been pushed to the limit on every possible occasion.
