Dubai Motor Show

The Devel Sixteen hypercar was unveiled at the 2013 Dubai International Motor Show and it is either sheer vaporware or the most insanely powerful car we’ve ever seen. According to it’s creator — Majid Al Attar — the new Devel Sixteen is "created with the passion of making this car a legend in the history of super cars."

The only problem is that even though the model dropped cover in Dubai, it’s official webpage remains mostly specification-free. Still, its pretty obvious the new Sixteen features an outrageous design language that seems inspired by the Lamborghini Egoista and Veneno , but taken to even crazier levels — if that’s even possible.

Under its hood, the Sixteen gets a sixteen-cylinder engine that, according to the specifications listed in Dubai Dubai , delivers a total of 5,000 horsepower — no, that’s not a typo, it’s a five with three zeros. With this incredible amount of power, Devel estimates the Sixteen will hit 60 mph in just 1.8 seconds and go up to a top speed of 560 km/h (347 mph). If the Devel Sixteen ever hits the market, then it will easily become the fastest production car in the world.

The new Sixten is rumored to come with a price of $1 million — a relative bargain if the specs are correct — and three customers have already placed orders.

Despite having a plethora of auto shows to choose where they were going to unveil the new Trailblazer , Chevrolet decided on doing it at the 2011 Dubai Motor Show as a way of effectively sucking up to the Middle East. Not that there’s anything wrong with it, because if you really think about it, the Trailblazer is built for a region like the Middle East.

In any case, the 2013 Traiblazer did in fact make an appearance in Dubai and it came with plenty of new features that could potentially shoot it up the always-competitive mid-size SUV market.

The new Trailblazer was designed to combine the hauling and towing capability of a body-on-frame SUV with the ride comfort and efficiency of a crossover. Its no coincidence that the new Trailblazer, which was built in Brazil, epitomizes these qualities.

For all intents and purposes, the model that was shown at the Dubai Motor Show was merely a show vehicle, but according to Chevrolet, it’s as close to the real thing as it can possibly get.

The show vehicle features, among other things, a refreshed design, an all-wheel-drive system, and GM’s new 2.8-liter Duramax turbo-diesel engine, providing all of us as good a look at the company’s new mid-sized SUV before the production version enters the market next year.

Brabus has chosen the 2011 Dubai Motor Show to set the stage for the world’s fastest and most powerful luxury coupe. Together with some of the most amazing vehicles in the world, Brabus has revealed their Brabus 800 Coupe based off of the Mercedes CL600 . This new package ensures the coupe pushes out 800 HP and a top speed of 217 mph while looking sporty and elegant.

Starting off the transformation is the upsizing of the vehicle’s V12 engine, from 5.5 L to 6.3L. Then, thanks to a high-end turbocharging system designed by Brabus engine specialists and a carbon-fiber ram-air intake integrated into the hood, the CL600 now pushes out a total of 800 HP and 1,047 lb-ft of torque.
