Keep in mind that Dubai-based hypercar? The one with the insidious name? It’s known as the Devel Sixteen, and it’s makers have been guaranteeing crazy power figures for various years now. There’s discussion of 5,000 strength, a 0-60 time of under two seconds, and a top speed of more than 345 miles for each hour. Those are additionally totally crazy figures. One of them, be that as it may, may be genuine all things considered.
Devel has posted video on its YouTube page that demonstrates the motor getting dynoed. This is no cammed V-8, yet rather a 12.3-liter V-16 motor outfitted with four turbochargers. Four gigantic 81-millimeter turbos, incidentally. The motor thunders, the dyno numbers take off, and all things considered we’re left with the accompanying:
4,515 strength at 6,900 rpm and pushing 36 psi of lift.3,519 lb-ft of torque at 6,600 rpm and 36 psi of lift.3,006 strength at 6,900 rpm when dropped to 20 psi of lift and running pump gas.2,407 lb-ft of torque at the lower settings.
The makers of the Devel Sixteen have collaborated with Steve Morris Engines to breath life into this vision. The subsequent powerplant uses a billet square and camshaft, titanium valves, and those previously mentioned supersized turbos. In the depiction of the video, it’s uncovered that the motor dyno couldn’t hold more power over the 4,515 strength figure the motor was producing. There was more to be had, obviously, and the video guarantees the motor has more than 5,000 steeds.
Presently, we see that it is conceivable that the Devel Sixteen is prepared to shake forward with wicked drive on tap. That doesn’t yet mean it can hit its cited 0-60 times or top speed number. For hell’s sake, we’d be awed on the off chance that it made the dash to 60 in three seconds, seeing as the main issue would be footing. We’re additionally inquisitive in the matter of what kind of transmission is being utilized here to deal with that much power.
We’ll be watching to check whether and when Devel affirms those execution figures. Until then, appreciate the sound of 5,000 charging steeds!
