Dubai is well known for its wealth and extravagance. From towers such as the Burj Khalifa to its 22,500 square foot indoor ski resort, the country likes to push things to the next level. Enter the Devel Sixteen, Dubai's answer to the hypercar world. This car really does push the envelope, both looks and perfomance wise. It is powered by a 4,500 HP on race fuel and 3,006 on regular 93 octane. 12.3 Litre quad turbo V16 built by Steve Morris Engines. The car was designed to look and feel as much like a jet fighter as possible and surpass its competitors on all fronts.

The car is built with an aluminium frame mounted on carbon fiber monocoque but still weighs 2300 kg due to the size of the engine. Estimated top speed is 350 MPH and 0-60 in 1.8 seconds, actual figures yet to be confirmed. A concept version was produced in 2013 and the car was supposedly to go into production in 2016, but not much has been heard of it since. The plan was to produce a maximum of 10 cars a year, but this has not taken off yet. It could be due to the 1.5 million price tag or the outrageous looks and power of the car that had it never gained much popularity, or perhaps production cost were simply too high. It was, at least, a pretty cool concept.
