7Watch this Jaguar XJ220 perform a fiery burnout

We like to think that at least some supercar owners drive their exotic machinery the way they're meant to be driven. The reality is more likely that most pamper them in climate-controlled environments and rarely actually drive them. But Tax The Rich seems dedicated to balancing them all out by hooning the heck out of some of the most expensive and desirable supercars the world has ever seen – whether it's a Ferrari Enzo rallying along dirt roads or a pair of F50s playing tug of war.

87Ford demonstrates Mustang's new Line Lock burnout feature

Been saving your pennies for a 2015 Ford Mustang? Put in a few extra shifts or some overtime? Got a great down payment ready? Well, however much you saved for your new pony car, start saving more - you'll need the extra money to spend on tires.

43Diesel convoy burnoutfest is a unique way to remember a loved one

While many roadside tributes include crosses, signs and flowers, the friends and colleagues of Daniel Toops found a more unusual – yet seemingly fitting – way to honor him. Toops, the owner of Toops Performance in London, Ohio, passed away early Thanksgiving morning as the passenger in a single-vehicle accident, and on their way to his viewing, a convoy comprised almost exclusively of tuned diesel trucks stopped in front of Toops' shop with a soot-spewing, tire-smoking tribute which

11Is this the world's first two-wheel-drive motorcycle burnout?

There are motorcycle burnouts, and there are two-wheel-drive motorcycle burnouts – the latter of which don't happen too often. All-wheel-drive motorcycle maker Christini also makes frame kits to convert certain KTM and Honda motorcycles into two-wheel-drive monsters, and this converted Austrian adventure bike could be the first motorcycle to perform a two-wheel-drive burnout - or at least the first one captured on video.

30Suzuki GSX-R owner smokes out the kitchen

Dear Internets, with Thanksgiving on the way, we feel now is a good time to thank you for all the weird stuff you deliver on a daily basis. That includes the memes, GIFs, and videos that make us laugh and scratch our heads at the same time. Take this gem, for example.

12Australians take world's largest burnout crown [w/video]

The previous mark for the number of cars simultaneously performing a burnout, as certified by those record keepers at the Guinness Book of World Records, was 49. That mark has now been moved to 69 (even though the newscast graphic says 70, it was 69) thanks to the petrolheads ready to sacrifice tires at Australia's Summernats Car Festival in the nation's capital, Canberra.

18Tesla Model S burnout: short, sweet and sort of silent

We'll keep this short, since the video in question is only 22 seconds long (and if you watch it below, go ahead and shorten it up by skipping six seconds of b-roll at the beginning). Still, if you've ever wanted to see a Tesla Model S spin out and smoke some tires, then be jealous of Road & Track west coast editor Jason Cammisa, who decided to see if electrons can go in circles recently in Palm Springs.

70Jay Leno burns rubber in a Fiat 500 Abarth

As you can see from the screen grab above, some people get to have all the fun. Jay Leno, who owns more cars than you will ever drive in your lifetime, was graced with the presence of a Fiat 500 Abarth at his garage.

28Ferrari dealership in trouble for burning rubber on the Great Wall of China

Ferrari is not an outfit that would miss out on the enormous opportunity presented by the Chinese market. Having won the grand prix there three times out of the first four it was held, the Prancing Horse marque launched a special-edition 599 there in 2009, followed by an even more exclusive porcelain-finish one-off.

51Chevy Corvette Z06 Centennial goes head-to-head with Cadillac CTS-V Coupe in Burnout Super Test

One rear-drive coupe with over 500 horsepower would be enough for most automakers. But not General Motors. The biggest of the Detroit automakers just couldn't get by with what some rivals would put on a showroom turntable with more flood-lights than an ATF raid. That's why it makes the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and ZR1, the Camaro ZL1 and the Cadillac CTS-V. (And that's before we get into overseas products like the Holden Commodore GTS/Vauxhall VXR8.)

602012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 already reflashed for crazy burnout action

SRT cars love doing burnouts. This is not news. So, how do you get an all-wheel-drive 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 to produce as much smoke as any Challenger, Charger or 300C we've ever seen? By messing with the ECU, of course.
