from https://www.motor1.com/news/386231/amg-e63-burnout-on-flatbed/amp/

That looks like an accident waiting to happen.
Reckless drivers never cease to amaze us as they always seem to discover new ways to put themselves in danger along with other traffic participants. The latest example comes from Russia where someone decided to obliterate the rear tires of a Mercedes-AMG C63 S Sedan by doing a burnout while strapped onto a flatbed that was in motion on a snowy road in Saint Petersburg.

We would be lying if we said it doesn’t look cool, but this seems like an accident waiting to happen. As a matter of fact, the driver actually lost control of the high-performance sedan and slammed the Mercedes into the front and side rails of the flatbed, causing some minor damage to the wheel as well as the front bumper.

Having this much confidence in the straps that hold the car in place is quite risky in our opinion as imagine what would’ve happened if the car had ripped them off. That's especially true when the vehicle in question is capable of sending a whopping 503 horsepower to the rear wheels.


We’re sincerely hoping this is a one-time thing the driver did to get it out of his system and others won't take inspiration from his reckless behavior. The sad part is he isn't the first one to do a burnout on a moving flatbed truck, and we have a feeling he won't be the last.
