In 1938, America celebrated the first annual Donut Day. Though 20 years after the fact, it was started as a way to remember and honor a special group from the Salvation Army, nicknamed the “Donut Dollies,” who provided the sweet fried dough treats to soldiers, along with pens, paper, toiletries and other life necessities, during World War One.
The United States has marked every first Friday of every June since that year as National Donut Day, with chains and local bakers alike offering free treats in recognition of the holiday. We’ve decided to celebrate with donuts of a different variety, ones that probably don’t taste good at all and really aren’t meant to be edible.
Below you’ll find supercar donut videos that we’ve come across, featuring specialty tires ripped to shreds by vehicles using their power properly. Remember, even though June 3 is National Donut Day, do not attempt to recreate any of the actions in the videos below unless on a closed course and under professional supervision. The editors at duPont REGISTRY do not condone any illegal actions on the road, and would like to remind you all to be safe and obey all local traffic laws.

Of course, once you have the course closed off and the supervision arranged, you’ll need a supercar worthy of becoming an exotic donut maker. Check out our exclusive listings at the button below, and see what you can find for your Donut Day celebration.

At the end of a track day, ADV.1 shredded some serious rubber behind the track to show off just show powerful the F12berlinetta really is. Luckily, Cinemotive Media was on hand to capture it all.

The only thing better than watching one BMW M4 do perfect donuts? Watching two do them, at the exact same time, within inches of each other.

With a perfectly matched power-to-weight ratio and a power output that pushes it to the level of megacar, the One:1 from Koenigsegg is the ideal candidate to test out a set of tires.

The tires for Ferrari’s LaFerrari are specially crafted specifically for the model by Pirelli, meaning they aren’t exactly easy to replace quickly. But if you have an extra pair sitting around, you may as well put them to good use.
Lamborghini Huracan in the Snow

Just because it was designed with the track in mind doesn’t mean a supercar can’t crush it in icy conditions, too.

After this particular Enzo spun off a patch of gravel and into a body of water in 2011, it was completely restored after $2.3 million was spent making it more powerful and better than before.

Just because he’s the CBO behind Hoonigan doesn’t mean he isn’t a Hoonigan himself. Brian Scotto is Ken Block’s right hand, and he definitely knows all about Block’s business from first-hand experience.
Chevrolet Camaro ZL1

It’s not often you see a police officer doing donuts. It’s not often you see a Lamborghini Gallardo doing donuts. And it’s almost unheard of to see a police officer doing donuts in a Lamborghini Gallardo. Unless you’re in Italy.
Porsche 918 Spyder

It may be a hybrid, but it can still spin a donut with the best of them. Check out this video from Carlifestyle to get a good mix of detail shots and pure performance from the 918, and hear that engine come fully to life.
Bonus: Ken Block Does Donuts Around a Donut

It wouldn’t be a donut video compilation if there wasn’t at least one video of master-donut-maker Ken Block. The fact that these donuts are done around a giant donut just makes it even better.
