    Agreed. Fortunately no innocent bystanders were hurt.

    I'm sure the P85D has far better traction control than that monster ICE car. But at the moment there are no automatic vehicle safety systems that can prevent drivers from driving like idiots.

    Interesting concept though... We need something similar on the P85D...

    "In fact, you need TWO keys to operate a Hellcat, either the Challenger or Charger version.
    The first key is to allow you to use the first 500 horsepower in the motor.
    The second key activates all 707 horses."

    I think it's more of someone buying a car they didn't know how to properly drive and taking unnecessary risks by speeding on public roads. Countless stories like this.
