Earlier this month, we showed you a Ford Focus ST that was tuned by Hennessey. It turns out that John Hennessey liked the program so much he decided to enter it to the TX2K13 Burnout Contest.

What better way to show off the Focus ST’s improved engine than to see it in an all-out burnout competition, complete with lots and lots (we mean LOTS) of smoke.

The American aftermarket company managed to take a video of the Focus ST doing its best tire burning exhibition and it’s totally ridiculous, bordering to the point of insanity.

We knew that with a right program, a car like the Focus ST is capable of doing some impressive burnouts. But what we didn’t expect was the kind of smoke this Hennessey-tuned Focus ST managed to produce. Really, there are sports cars that can’t come to the burnout level that this sports hatchback managed to accomplish effortlessly.

Check out the video and you’ll understand why we’re so impressed with what the Hennessey-tuned Focus ST was able to do.

I am not sure if I understand the concept of burnout contest. If they want to prove the durability or the endurance of the car, then I guess that’s fine. But I just hope that the car won’t wear out after the contest.
