Devel Sixteen Extreme Hypercar With Up To 5,007HP, Has A 2-Year Waiting List

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.

    I’m pretty sure they will be waiting a heck of a lot longer than 2 years. Somewhere more in the neighborhood of “forever.”

      Try “never”

  • Mr. EP9

    I really have no faith this will ever go into production.

  • Nick Hebert

    I heard the waiting time for vaporware is close to infinite. Just a couple of boneheaded billionaire brothers trying to vie for people’s attention thinking an insane HP number is enough. How about give actual acceleration figures from a prototype video first then people will maybe take you half serious.

    I will believe this car will be built when it actually gets built and goes into production. 5000hp = 320 mph? It should go A LOT faster than that! It’ll be all about the tires. The 2000hp version should break 300 mph and maybe get close to 320. The 5000hp version should approach, to be conservative I’ll say 370mph. Should be faster but tires and aerodynamics will be the limiting factors. As speed increases, drag increases exponentially. And then there’s heat and centrifugal force with the tires and friction and air compressibility and probably a hundred other things I haven’t mentioned….

    It’s all lies about this car…

  • TheHake

    VW with it’s might couldn’t get a tyre for the Chiron to break 480km/h, but these guys will do 515km/h… Right.

    What a joke. Who is stupid enough to buy this

    The article seems at least to me to fail to talk about how it this vehicles’ limited to a production of only a few variants per-year. This means they won’t be making the 30/40 or so a year Bugatti is making. They are (if I remember correctly) only planning to make a few per year.

    So I has a 2 year waiting list because the number of vehicles they are making are not in the hundreds or even 10s’.

    It’s very clear this is a little bit more than simply Vaporeware. They have a working prototype, they actually have an engine and means of infrastructure, and if you know much about the company was really just started by 2 guys who really liked cars, decided to build a crazy dream engine of theirs, and then needed a vehicle for their engine to actually do ‘things’ with (and who and the resources to actually build it).

    Considering this isn’t a full production company in the way VW, Konegsegg, or even SSC is, it’s understandable why they are limiting production to only a few per year, noting that it’s a pretty big miracle they actually even have a working prototype of the vehicle itself.

    I’m not here to defend anyone necessarily, but the misleading information provided seems to be missing a little bit of crucial information. I don’t think it is wise to speak on what you have not fully researched or learned much about.

    Lol this thing is never getting built..

    How come we never get to see the interior?

    • The-Fez

      Probably because it looks like hot garbage, much like the exterior. I saw this thing in person last weekend and it just looks like a bad kit car.

      • SteersUright

        Oh wow, not surprised but rather unfortunate.

      • Rick Van Gog

        Wow, ur both so retarded that you can’t even watch a video. Supercar Blondie literally shows the inside of the car, morons.

  • SteersUright

    Interesting and rather stunning machine. Can’t wait and hope to see the production version soon.
