Devel Sixteen Priced From $1.6 Million In 2,000 HP Guise 20
Posted by Brad Anderson in Devel, Devel Sixteen, Reports on 11 20th, 2017

Hot on the heels of the Devel Sixteen premiering in production spec at the Dubai Motor Show, pricing details for the hypercar have been announced.

According to Arab GT, the Sixteen range will start with a road-legal variant delivering 2,000 hp from its twin-turbocharged V8 and priced from $1.6 million. Unlike the quad-turbo V16 discussed in the past, we’ve yet to see this V8 in action and don’t yet know if it will be a custom powertrain or instead based on an existing production engine. Deliveries of this variant should commence two years after orders are taken.

Moving up in the range will be a 3,000 hp Sixteen with the same twin-turbo V8. Like the entry-level model, it will be delivered two years after order but cost $1.87 million. For an additional 1,000 hp, that price hike doesn’t seem excessive.

Last but not least is the 5,000 hp Devel Sixteen, first unveiled to the world four years ago. Unsurprisingly, it has emerged that this version will be restricted to track use and utilize a quad-turbo 12.3-liter V16. Deliveries will reportedly start one year after order and start at a cool $2.2 million.

Although it’s impressive to see that the previously-unknown carmaker has edged closer to bringing its first model to the production line, we’re still not convinced that we will see the car reach production anytime soon.


5,000HP Devel Sixteen Is The Fastest Thing In Dubai 14

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.


Production-Ready Devel Sixteen Coming To Dubai Motor Show 8

Shortly after we witnessed the Devel Sixteen’s quad-turbo V16 engine delivering 5007 hp on a dyno, it has emerged that the production-ready car could premiere at next week’s Dubai Motor Show.

In the four years since premiering as a concept in Dubai, most had thought the project was simply vaporware and would never see the light of day.

However, Road & Track reports that Devel is partnering with Italian manufacturing firm Manifattura Automobili Torino to make the Sixteen a production reality.

For those that don’t know, Manifatture Automobili Torino has been tasked with building both the Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus SCG 003 and the new Apollo Intensa Emozione, therefore making it the prime candidate to bring Dubai’s craziest-ever car to the roads.

Now aware of how much power Steve Morris Engines has been able to extract from the powertrain, Devel still quotes the Sixteen as having over 5000 hp, or, as it describes it, “the power of ten supercars.” All this grunt will reportedly launch the hypercar to over 310 mph (500 km/h). Remarkably, Devel claims that the car will still be suitable as a daily driver.

Stay tuned for more about the car in the coming days.


It’s Not Dead Yet; Devel Sixteen Engine Delivers 5,000 HP On Dyno 8

Four years since first appearing on our radar, it seems as if Dubai’s Devel Sixteen hypercar refuses to die.

In late 2015, a video surfaced online depicting the Sixteen’s custom-built quad-turbo, 12.3-liter V16 engine delivering 4,515 hp on an engine dyno. Fast forward to November 2017 and Steve Morris Engines has confirmed that the powertrain has finally reached the promised 5,000 hp mark.

During these recent tests, the engine delivered 5,007 hp and 3,900 lb-ft of torque, remarkable figures achieved largely thanks to the four 81 mm turbochargers and the expertise of Steve Morris Engines in building powertrains for drag cars.

As impressive as it is to see an engine pumping out this much power, you shouldn’t get your hopes up of seeing the Devel Sixteen on the street anytime soon. For starters, it will be nearly impossible for a street car to provide enough cooling for such an engine. Additionally, finding a transmission that can withstand this power and be suitable for street use is no mean feat.


It’s A Miracle! Devel Weren’t Lying As ‘Sixteen’ Engine Delivers 4,515hp On The Dyno 9

Back in 2013, an unknown Middle Eastern supercar maker revealed the Devel Sixteen at the Dubai Motor Show. With a claimed 5000 hp on tap, the entirety of the automotive world scoffed and dismissed those rather ridiculous claims.

Well fast forward to the end of 2015 and incredibly, the Sixteen's bespoke V16 engine has almost hit that 5000 hp mark, recording an insane 4,515 hp on an engine dyno.
