Devel Sixteen still under development

Does the name Devel Sixteen tell you anything? What about Dubai? Well, Devel Sixteen is the first vehicle entirely developed in Dubai, the place where wealth is in its element. Luxury and exclusivity are the keys to get noticed around there. And the vehicle created by Rashid Al-Attari doesn’t lack any of these two. Moreover, the Devel Sixteen is created with the passion of making this car a Legend in the history of supercars. 

Devel Sixteen is wanted to be a unique car which targets at destroying all the world records. The creator believes he can achieve this aim with the help of a V16 engine and four "huge" turbos. It seems like an endless work on this car, because its construction began in 2006. Since then, the Arabian specialist managed to develop some special tires, aerodynamics and transmission which have the ability of facing the outstanding 5,000 bhp (3,728 kW) output.  It is not certain yet if this figure is dream or reality, since the vehicle hasn’t really demonstrated anything so far in terms of extraordinary extraterrestrial power.

It is assumed that in daily use, the Devel Sixteen will generate 800 bhp (597 kW) to 900 bhp (671 kW) by using only half of the cylinders. The funny part, or let’s give credit to the manufacturer and say the amazing part, is that with the push of a button the rest of the horsepower will magically kick in, as if you were captured in the mirage of a super power in a video game. All the 16 cylinders will enable the vehicle to reach a maximum speed of 348 mph (560 km/h). The supercar will enter production in about 16 months from now. And since Dubai is the place of big projects at the moment, let’s assume this record breaker will become reality eventually and it will also confirm the rumours launched about it.
