Enthusiastic New Charger Hellcat Owner Leaves Dodge Dealership With A Burnout

Whether this guy had just bought his Hellcat or he just happened to be driving past the dealership from which he purchased the car, he definitely wanted to let them know how much he’s enjoying it.

Here’s an idea; what if every single Dodge dealership had a loads of shredded tire marks in front of it? Wouldn’t that make for a great guerrilla marketing campaign? But hey, we’re not going to do their jobs for them!

What does work for them are cars such as this 707 HP white Charger Hellcat that took off in a cloud of smoke in front of the Elk Grove Dodge Chrysler Jeep & Ram dealership, in what has to be one of the best burnouts we’ve seen recently.

With that much power at its disposal, the Charger Hellcat can cover a 1/4 mile in 11 seconds flat, but obviously not while spinning its rear wheels this way. Its massive torque also helps it lose traction – and trust us, 650 lb-ft (881 Nm) is more than enough, regardless of its 4,560 lbs (2,068 kg) weight.

Now, despite how cool this looks, it’s pretty dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing. Smoking your tires while you’re stationary is easy, but covering what looks like a 1/8 mile while forcing the car to struggle for traction takes a bit more skill.

Either way, what do you guys think, jerk move by the driver or just showing off his enthusiasm?
