The Devel Sixteen has yet to hit production, but the company says it has more than enough people interested in it.
After speaking to Majid Al Attar, one of the company’s founders, CoolHunting reports that the waiting list is now two years long. And even if they can easily fork out at least $1.6 million for the hypercar, potential customers won’t be guaranteed that they’ll be selected to spend their money on one.
“We’re selective about buyers”, said Al Attar. “The buyers don’t pick the car. The car picks the buyers”.
The range-topping version of the Sixteen comes at an eye-watering $2.2 million (€1.94 million). It uses a 12.3-liter turbocharged V16 engine, which is rated at 5,007 horsepower (5,078 PS / 3,735 kW) and 3,757 pound-feet (5,094 Nm) of torque. That’s more than three times the power produced by the Bugatti Chiron’s 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 unit.
Hitting top speed in the Sixteen will be a truly memorable experience. The automaker estimates that it will max out at a whopping 320 mph (515 km/h), which, if correct, will turn it into the undisputed king of production models.
If having 5,000 hp sounds too scary, then customers can get the entry-level model from $1.6 million (€1.4 million), with its twin-turbo V8 that pushes out 2,000 hp (2,029 PS / 1,492 kW). The mid-range variant has 3,000 hp (3,043 PS / 2,238 kW) and is said to cost $1.87 million (€1,65 million).
The Sixteen is on display at the 2019 Canadian International Auto Show, in Toronto, until February 24.
