A young woman P-plate driver has been charged and family services has been notified after she allegedly did a burnout in a car park in Sydney's southwest with a baby in the back seat.

Police said the car's six-cylinder engine had been replaced by a highly modified V8 engine with only a partial exhaust system fitted.
Officers also noticed a 10-month-old baby in the car's rear seat.
The woman will appear in Liverpool Local Court on July 17 for the offence of aggravated burnout.
She was issued three infringement notices for driving a prohibited vehicle, not displaying P-plates and not carrying a licence. Her fines totalled $936 and her provisional licence was suspended.
Police also submitted a child at risk report to the Department of Family and Community Services.
