Devel Sixteen Hyper-Claims 5,000HP, 0-100 KM/H in 1.8 Seconds and 560km/h [w/Video]

One of the most intriguing exhibits at the 2013 Dubai International Motor Show is a claimed hypercar called Devel Sixteen. Although it doesn’t look that well put together, the makers of this V16-powered machine claim performance unheard of from production cars. The Devel Sixteen’s engine allegedly produces 5,000 hp (five times more than a Bugatti Veyron’s W16 powerplant), giving the car unheard-of performance. 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) takes 1.8 seconds and top speed is 560 km/h (348 mph). On the outside, the Sixteen can be described as a cross between a Lamborghini Veneno, a Pagani Zonda and a fighter jet – given the two enormous exhaust pipes that look like supersonic engines and the massive rear wing. I don’t know about you, but I don’t believe this specific example can even reach 250 km/h (155 mph) without disintegrating… The company’s website has no technical details about the car whatsoever, but describes it as “simply beyond extreme,” and “created with the passion of making this car a Legend in the history of super cars.” Thoughts?

  • If the stats are true this is the most impressive car in automotive history yet…

  • AstonMartin

    Insanely good! Wow, how do they keep this car in earths orbit. That’s the Batmobile for real.

  • MarketAndChurch

    I think handling and efficiency is a more expensive frontier to chart, then speed. But this is still an impressive feat.

  • chit

    560 km/h with brakes that small? haha


    These stats are pure BS…

  • Michael Rosenberg

    I am skeptical i mean 5 times more powerful then the bugatti veyron and 0-62 in 1.8 seconds and 5,000 horsepower seems to much unless this car has some new and revolutionary brakes how is a car the produces 5,000 horse going to slow down I mean 1.8 seconds is crazy fast. But listen if it has and can prove all that they state then like spiros said it will be the most impressive car in history. We will see

    lies, figures where it comes from. chit is correct, no way with brakes that small. prove those figures, give the car to top gear to test it. they wont, they are too chicken to be exposed to lies. 5000HP the motor wont last more than one month before it fails.

  • ChickMagnet

    Based on a Fiero? Tight. Sweet NASCAR tires.

  • Andrewthecarguy

    If you build a car that produces 5khp and can break 300mph, you wouldn’t launch it in this manner; you would launch it with videos of the car doing what you claim it can do.

    So I rule this BS. I think the plan here is to wow some Arab billionaire who would then fork over some money for the first one and you simply take the money and run!

  • BazZtarD

    Pagani meets Batmobile…

  • cikubum

    One big fake, like arrinera hussarya.

    Just look on that rear wing – the person who designed it has no knowledge about aerodynamics! If the rest of this “car” is desined with the same flavour I wil not exceed 100km/h.

  • Zygius

    1:02 Car already falling apart :DDD

  • Hunter

    looking for true test from Jeremy Clarkson and his opinion can’t wait for it

  • Owen Hamilton

    regardless of the fact that no tyres exist that would allow that speed, how come it’s only about 100mph faster than a Veyron yet has 5 times the bhp?

  • A few months late, it’s not April anymore 🙂

  • 3rdworldjunkie

    All they could dream of

  • JaeS4

    Looks like crap, that back and that exhaust is over the top stupid, and those ridiculous claims are BS. Just like Dubai.

    • Ali

      Dubai has nothing to do with this car so please do not link whatever is showing their with the city of Dubai. Dubai is like any other famous cities where everybody wants to launch his new product to get media attention.

      If you do not know anything about Dubai please do not through wards and if you like to know more about the city i can help you.

    I think if the letters were spelled out in the logo you would here the word, “Scam”.

  • Grzegorz Krawczyk
  • Really?

    Absolute bull. Maybe 500 hp, if there’s even an engine under that cover. That air dam would ruin the aerodynamics, plus the grill is just solid plastic. There wouldn’t be nearly enough airflow for a V16 engine to breathe, let alone break 350 mph The exhaust looks like they just slapped some cheap pieces of plastic on. Massive hoax. Good luck finding tires that won’t disintegrate at 300 mph.

    as fake as a hooker’s smile
