  • Devel Sixteen

    Dubai-based Devel is reportedly a far cry from producing the 5,007-horsepower Devel Sixteen supercar, and a notable engineering company is no longer working with the company. Road & Track reported on Tuesday that a source claimed the car is indefinitely stuck in development. Since the project's inception, the Garella-family's Manufattura Automobili Torino (MAT) has worked with Devel to develop and engineer the supercar that allegedly will reach speeds over 300 mph. However, there's a lot of work in front of the team without MAT at its side. The engine Devel has touted and showcased in the...

    5,000-horsepower Devel Sixteen debuts in production trim

    Dubai’s Devel shocked the world four years ago when it announced plans for a 5,000-horsepower, V-16-powered car capable of speeds over 300 mph. At the time, the company rolled out a crudely built prototype that looked like it was hastily put together in a back shed somewhere. It goes without...

    It's been four years since the Devel Sixteen caused a ruckus at the Dubai motor show, but the company has so far failed to show a working prototype of the car. That may change soon. Road & Track reported on Wednesday that the Devel Sixteen may show up at the 2017 Dubai motor show complete and...

    Watch Devel’s 12.3-liter quad-turbo V-16 make 5,007 horsepower

    When a new hypercar builder arrives on the scene, it's met with lots of skepticism and eye rolling. It's typically all warranted, though, as these cars promise insane speeds, crazier price tags, and an often imaginary waiting list. This is also usually accompanied by press release photos that are...

    While there’s plenty of reason to doubt the factuality of the Devel Sixteen’s claims of 5,000 horsepower, we now know, at the least, that it’s not total vaporware. It has been spotted out and about on a beach near Dubai. MUST WATCH: LaFerrari Nearly Powerslides Right Into Oncoming...

  • Devel Sixteen at Dubai Motor Show

    Skepticism is healthy, unless you're offering a 5,000-horsepower one-off supercar powered by a quad-turbo V-16 engine. Then the best path is unrelenting belief in the goal. Fortunately, Rashid Al-Attari, the developer of the Devel Sixteen, appears to be convinced of the possibilities.

But those drag cars only do it for a handful of seconds between rebuilds. Doing it in a car that can be driven on the street is another matter...

    Devel Sixteen claims 5,000 HP, 348 MPH top speed

    Not, it's not April Fool's Day, although it might be a bit foolish to think of this supercar as anything but vaporware. The Devel Sixteen was unveiled at the 2013 Dubai Motor Show with the promise of 5,000 horsepower from a sixteen-cylinder engine. That's the power of roughly four Bugatti Veyron...
