Burnout Friday: Pontiac G8, Chevy Camaro Tandem Tire Slaying
Watch as a Pontiac G8 and a Chevrolet Camaro do a wicked side by side burnout.
You are watching a couple of high performance General Motors products roasting their tires in the Beltway Bullies Burnout Pit. Really, it just looks like a couple of street racers raising hell on the street. This two-for-one burnout comes to us from the YouTube account of Bryan Kane.
In this burnout video, we have a Pontiac G8 GT and a 5th gen Chevrolet Camaro SS sitting side by side, roasting their rear tires. At first, the tire slaying action is a bit slow, but as the video goes on, smoke begins to pour from the back of the Pontiac. While we can’t see the rear tires of the Camaro, the amount of smoke building around the back end – and the smoke traveling up to the front of the car – makes it clear that both GM products are flexing their burnout muscles. Mind you, shy of the newer Chevrolet SS sport sedan and the 6th gen Camaro, this Pontiac and 5th gen Camaro are among the most capable burnout machines from GM. All we need is a C6 Corvette and this video would have a collection of GM’s best performance models from that era in one smoky video.
After about 20 seconds, the Camaro driver lets off of the brakes and the car slips forward, finishing the burnout as it rolls out of the camera view while the Pontiac G8 smokes the tires through the end of the short clip.
In addition to putting on quite a smoke show, this Pontiac G8 and Chevrolet Camaro SS sound great while in action, so crank up your speakers and enjoy!
