This Is What Happens When You Use A McLaren 12C As A Cigarette Lighter

Or, if you’re one of these guys, using a slightly more expensive gadget to light a cigarette.

Here is exhibit A for reference. While these guys aren’t committing the offence of being blatantly wasteful just for the sake of bragging, it’s not the smartest move in the world to stand behind the flaming burps of a 3.8-liter twin turbo V8.
