How A Hellcat Goes Up In Flames



This is a tough one to watch. Whether you’re a Ford guy, Mopar guy, or anything in between you never want a nice car being destroyed. YouTube channel, Family Cruisin, has footage of their Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat going up in flames though. We covered a story on them a while back when they used the car as an Uber and did burnouts to get 5-star ratings. And it seems he drives the car pretty hard all the time from the other videos on the channel. Motor1 reports that the car had recently gotten a new engine and the driver decided to take it for a nice run to break it in. Except that on that run, he started having an issue where nothing was happening while pressing the gas pedal. But instead of calling for a tow or pulling over to see what might be wrong, he proceeds to try and accelerate and hit the gas hard. Unfortunately for him (and the car) he realized too late something was seriously wrong and only pulled over after smelling gas. Which then caught fire and sent the Hellcat up in flames. Probably could have been avoided...
