VIDEO: The Aussies show the world how burnouts are done!

There’s some things that the Aussies do best: Make insanely powered pickup trucks (utes to those down under), fishing and insects that kill you. Here’s another to add to he list… burnouts!

Over the pond the term “street legal” might mean a little less than what would be required on UK roads. With that aside, any car capable of running a low 6 second quarter mile is going to be rather special. Even if his ute might need some work for it’s MOT, Larry Larson still made a 6.16-second pass at 219 mph in his 1998 Chevy S-10 during the HOT ROD Drag Week 2014 Heads-Up Challenge. The resulting time is reported...

The Turbo-Nutters youtube channel (link to the right)  has been ticking along nicely over the last couple of years but one video in particular has been getting an awful lot of attention. Behold Alpina’s (“Dave” to to the uninitiated” ) 3 Door RS500 Cosworth doing what it does best. The sound in this video really doesn’t do it justice.
