Is this the future of the hypercar segment?

The Bugatti Chiron. The Koenigsegg Agera RS. The Mercedes-AMG Project One. The Aston Martin Valkyrie. The Hennessey Venom F5. These are the names of five of the most prominent performance cars of 2017. Yet somehow, not one of these cars can lay claim to being the most bonkers car to make its debut this year. That title belongs to the Devel Sixteen, thought to be nothing more than a mythical figment of the imagination when the prototype was introduced to the public four years ago. That was back in 2013 when the Devel Sixteen first became “something.” Four years later, it’s more than just “something” now; it’s the real deal.

It only takes one look at the car before you realize that you’re looking at a machine that could revolutionize the supercar/hypercar segment the same way cars like the McLaren F1 and the Ferrari F40 did two decades ago. It’s too early to say if the Sixteen has that potential, but the numbers being thrown around by Devel are completely unheard of. Think the Chiron is powerful by having 1,500 horsepower at its disposal? Well, Devel claims the Sixteen has 5,007 horsepower. 5,007! That’s more than three times the power produced by Bugatti’s latest crown and jewel! Think this current race-to-300-mph is worthwhile to follow? The Sixteen may soon render that race irrelevant with claims that it can hit 350 mph without even breaking a sweat. At some point, the hypercar will have a lot to prove when it finally gives us a taste of what it’s capable of. Until then, we’re going to sit here with bags full of salt, waiting for Devel to show us what the Sixteen is really all about.
