In Italy, a 5,000-horsepower Devel Sixteen was caught during testing. The heavy Arabic hypercar is preparing for small production despite numerous complexities.
This is reported by Ekonomske vijesti with a link to Autoportal.
It should be noted that the Devel Sixteen has been in development since 2008, and the first prototype appeared back in 2013. However, the project is really complex and there are constant obstacles in the way of its implementation.
Devel Sixteen plans to sell in three versions. Even the base $ 1.6 million variant will get a twin-turbo V8 with 2,000 horsepower. For $ 1.9 million, it will offer a 3000 hp version. with.
The premium variant with the 12.3-liter V16 with 5,000 horsepower with four turbines will cost $ 2.2 million. It will be able to accelerate to 100 km / h in 1.8 seconds and develop 560-570 km / h.
It is a version of the V16 that is being tested in Italy, but so far the engine is not equipped with turbines. In addition, there are problems with engine cooling at the moment and this is the main reason for the delay in project implementation.
