Burnouts are cool right up until they aren’t. The owner of this third-generation Cadillac CTS-V sedan learned that the hard way after their car suffered catastrophic damage while performing a burnout for a crowd.
This video, published by user 2gsjakob on TikTok, shows the 640-hp supercharged V-8-powered Cadillac performing a burnout on a public road in front of some on-lookers. The tire-melting doesn’t last long until we hear a loud pop come from underneath the car, followed by a cloud of white smoke. The driver briefly continues to rev the car before realizing it’s a lost cause.
A brief view of the debris left by the boom can be seen on the ground. Judging by all of the small metal fragments and the pool of red liquid, we’re guessing the transmission decided it didn’t want to withstand all of that abuse any longer, and grenaded itself, spilling its guts onto the pavement. It seems the incident also caused a fire within the car, as the fire department was called. Firefighters tore into the car even further, destroying the windshield and interior. We have no doubt the car was totaled after that.
