Exclamation

I want the image that was on the front of the European Car Mag of the Jaguar XKR that was spinning its tires and the strip it laid was on fire? I think it was in the summer last year or sometime around then?

They probably photoshopped it to add the flames like that.

I remember watching people do it on a show once, it was a while ago, but I think they got the tires all warmed up and then sprayed them with some flammable material that stuck to the rubber laid on the ground
