850hp Mercedes-Benz SLS shoots mega flames

You know you’re dealing with diabolical horsepower levels when your car requires ballast in the boot when on the dyno. Another sign of huge power is flames shooting from the exhaust. As is the case with this heavily tuned twin-turbo Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG by RADO Motorsports. It demonstrates both of these traits and almost turns the human ballast in the boot into a crispy chip in the process.
