This week’s Tire Shredding Tuesday feature takes a look at a Dodge Charger SRT8 in the hands of an automotive publication doing a big, smokey burnout. We can presume from the fact that this Charger is a media test car that it is completely stock riding on stock rubber but with “only” 425 horsepower – this early Charger SRT8 has no problems obliterating the tires as the driver lets the muscular Mopar sedan slowing roll away from the cameraman.
Best of all, we can see in the first video that this Charger SRT8 has a GoPro camera mounted to the door and in addition to the 3rd person view of the Hemi powered Charger burnout from the side, we get to watch a second video of that same burnout from an on-car perspective. This gives us two angles to watch an awesome burnout by one of the most powerful American sedans of the modern era. While this burnout doesn’t start out all that great, once the tires get to spinning hard (about 6 seconds in), we are treated to another 20 seconds of tire shredding action as the Charger roars off into the distance. Crank up your speakers and enjoy!
