The Ultimate Dodge Hellcat Burnout Video Roundup

Illustration for article titled The Ultimate Dodge Hellcat Burnout Video Roundup

The Dodge Challenger and Charger Hellcat SRT twins are two of the most powerful production cars on the market, and they're really, really good at doing burnouts. Here are a bunch of videos of them shredding their tires.


The SRT Hellcat twins are both packing 707 horsepower supercharged HEMI V8s under the hood that make a tire-melting 650 lb.-ft. of torque. They're essentially the greatest burnout machines ever sold on dealer lots.

In celebration of the first Challenger Hellcats rolling off the assembly line and onto showroom floors this week, we collected all of the smokiest Hellcat burnout videos we could find.
