Acceleration of the 5,000-strong hypercar Devel Sixteen: video
Last fall, the Arab company Devel Motors presented the Sixteen hypercar, equipped with a 12.3-liter V16 engine with four 81-mm turbines, which, according to the developers, will be able to produce 5, 000 horsepower. It was claimed that to the first “hundred” the car will be able to accelerate in 1.8 seconds, and the maximum speed will be 560 km / h.
Now, Devel Motors has posted a short video on Instagram, which demonstrates the acceleration of the Sixteen hypercar on a track in the desert. Although it is noted that only 20 percent of the engine’s power was used, the video confirms that the powerful hypercar is indeed gradually becoming a reality.
