5,000HP Devel Sixteen Is The Fastest Thing In Dubai

Devel’s stand at the 2017 Dubai Motor Show has to be among the most impressive ones, and even though Dubai is known for its extravagant and high-performance cars, the Sixteen is on a whole other level.

Thanks to YouTuber Shmee150, we’ve been given a really close look at a finalized concept version of the Sixteen (not quite production-ready), available in three configurations, each one more powerful than just about any hypercar on sale today.

The “entry-level” model features a 2,000 HP V8 setup, and is followed by a 3,000 HP V8 racing version. Of course, the main attraction is the 5,000 HP quad-turbo 12.3-liter V16 version, which is more track-oriented.

Apparently, this hypercar is meant to hit speeds in excess of 310 mph (500 km/h), which is pretty much when you forget about taking it to the track and send it directly to the Bonneville Salt Flats.

The interior of the car is still under development, yet the concept design looks both simplistic as well as futuristic, which isn’t a bad combination. The cabin also looks surprisingly spacious, unexpected for this type of machine.

Also present at Devel’s stand was the Devel 60, a 6-wheeled off-roader powered by a 6.7-liter turbo diesel V8, good for 720 HP and over 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft) of torque. It’s not the best looking thing in the world, but you wouldn’t bet against it when it comes to tackling rough terrain.

    I’ll believe it when I see it…

  • BlackRock

    From the inside it looks like an ice cream car!

  • Yobobjm

    It looks a lot better than their previous attempts, but it still looks a way off from being a “top quality” supercar.

  • MarketAndChurch

    The rear end of this thing, especially in black, is what a Bugatti rear-end should look like.

    • fabri99

      NO. Bugattis are supposed to be elegant, along with super-fast, record-breaking etc.

  • thunder bolt

    1st thing 1st, can it drive ?

  • alexxx

    This is next level design… stunning…

  • Go Speed Racer Go

    Looks cartoonish.


    So this thing is actually going to be hitting the streets? Cool. Now, how about that 6 wheeled APC looking one? I want one with twin mounted M2A1s on the top.

  • Auto

    I thought they went bankrupt.

  • john1168

    This thing is insane! 5000 HP? Is that gonna be enough??? LOL

  • SteersUright

    Awesome, looks like a movie prop. But meaningless until at least a functional prototype is made.

  • karmat

    Some radical positive camber on the rear wheels of that white one.

    • Astonman

      The grey ones should be your rides.

      • Bash

        lol that one is really Astonishing man!. love it.

        • Astonman

          see what you did there;)

  • Kevin Tay

    It’s real? like Scale Model real? Look at the plastic opaque windscreens.

  • Knotmyrealname

    Can I say it? I can’t stand Shmee.

  • disqus_83g6mJmr6l

    A Huge design improvement over the 1st (horrible) model that was shown before.all of the sudden it doesn’t matter the ridiculous claim of 5000 hp because it just looks outwardly.the graphics are cool too

  • Howstar

    5000hp “track” orientated
    No wonder F1 cars are so slow..

  • Vassilis

    F Shmee.

  • Zed68

    Can’t wait for Richard Hammond to crash one…

  • Axiom Ethos

    Smell’s of horse sh*t, probably is horse sh*t. 5k hp isn’t real and not even necessary to get past 300 mph. The real question is who and what is engineering the tires that can even handle that speed as the laws of physics want to rip them to shreds. With no proof of concept even showing the engine pushing that much out, let alone surviving it, I’d be damned if this is just rich Arabian snake oil that goes nowhere and is just there for show.

    • Oliver Moore

      The engine exists and has proven itself. Fuel, reliability, emission regulations and tyres are the concerns here.
