Holden HSV Turns into Fireball While Doing Donuts

Too much HP can kill you. It’s just not jibber-jabber, a lot of drivers lost their lives while driving high-performance, power-packing vehicles.

Fortunately enough, what you’re about to see below doesn’t involve fatalities, but two very lucky people that managed to evade the flaming vehicle right on time. We don’t know what happened in the end and if the HSV exploded or not, but it’s reassuring to know the driver and the passenger escaped unscathed.

On the other hand, we’re pretty sure the HSV Club Sport had to be scrapped, which is a real shame given that the rear-wheel sedan had nearly 1,300 HP under its hood. This literally hot event happened at Powercruise USA in Minnesota last week. Scroll below to watch the video and remember not to try this in your back yard.
