Dubai-based startup manufacturer unveiled its Devel Sixteen hypercar at the 2017 Dubai Motor Show on Tuesday. The body is made of super-light carbon fiber and powered by 81mm Quad Turbo 12.3 Litre V16 engine that generates a jaw-dropping 5007 Horsepower and 3757 lb-ft of torque.
Claims are that it goes from 0-100kmph in 1.8 seconds while reaching top speeds of 498kmph. To put this in perspective, it’s power is equivalent to four Bugatti Veyron Super Sports, a car with a 1200PS, 8.0-litre, quad-turbocharged W16 engine.
The Devel sixteen faces a stiff supercar segment all vying for glory. Hennessy recently revealed the Venom F5, which it hopes will go 301 mph when it gets around to building a working vehicle. Koenigsegg and its team recently set a new top-speed record of 277.9 mph in the Agera RS. And let’s not forget Bugatti, which certainly isn’t finished with its Chiron supercar.
