Cleetus McFarland Slays Tires in Hellcat Powered Miata MX-5

Our new hero! This Mazda MX-5 is what Power & Performance is all about. Take a close look at the engine bay… Thats right – someone stuffed a 707-horsepower Hellcat engine into this tire slaying Miata.

This smoke show took place at Bradenton Motorsports Park, Florida and is the only one of a series of videos on YouTube giving us updates of the Miata through all the stages of the engine swap done by KARR. 

The beginning is a little slow, but once YouTuber Cleetus McFarland gets behind the wheel the car seems to unleash it’s fury without any hesitation. 

We would like to think it goes to show how utterly unnecessary the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 is in a car like this, but it also shows us just how much fun you can have with a 707-hp MX-5. 

What are your thoughts on this 6.2-liter Hemi V8 swapped Miata? Share them in the comments below.
