Click above to watch the video after the jump

We love burnouts as much as the next guy, but lets face it: Not every clip of tires spinning on pavement is a thing of beauty. Some are too short, the camera is too shaky or perhaps the burnout is just a sloppy mess. Hey, it happens. But every now and again, we come across something special – a true Rembrandt of burning rubber, so to speak.

Patiently waiting past the jump is just such a work of artistic genius, with a Snakeskin Green Viper playing the starring role. The beautiful, crisp HD video (shot at 120 frames-per-seconds on a very serious Red One camera) is chock-full of elegant pans, tilts and slo-mos with 19-inch Viper wheels spinning all the while. Proceed beyond the jump for three minutes of joy. You won't regret it.

Oh, and we love the smell of napalm burnt rubber in the morning...

      Same tech level as the 60's Muscle Cars - my '65 Corvette would do that on its rock hard, high-profile bias plys with Positraction to help a little but no traction control.
      Our entertainment was to see who could leave the longest stripes on the road before the cops came along...bragging rights!

      While nice, it was kind of boring after a few seconds.

      Still not as epic as this one (forgive me but the original youtube clip was taken down):

      My favorite part of the video was the guy's license plate.
      Face it, about the only vehicle that's a more natural burnout machine is the SRT10 Ram so, is it REALLY a big deal to see this car doing a basic burnout?
        • 4 Years Ago
        I couldn't figure out what you were talking about until 1:00...he has a stock plate for the first burnout, then switches to "NO NANYS" for the rest of the video...

      Now that's a "green movement" I can fully support.

      I like it. Nothing green but the paint...

      love the license plate

      love the burnout beginning at 1:32
        • 4 Years Ago
        His plate is different in the beginning of the film (0:25) but that must have been before he got his personalized one.

        I dig 1:32 as well.

      I love this guys tag.

      Regardless, those tires are damn expensive. Am I the only one who really doesn't find burnouts all that impressive unless you are practicing for the perfect launch?

        @ katshot

        That is the only time I'd ever do one as well!
