Video of the Day: Watch the 6x6 Devel Sixty Devour a Mercedes-AMG GT S and a Mercedes G-Wagon
In one lane we have the 2018 Devel Sixty, and in the other, the Mercedes-AMG GT S. The Sixty delivers 720 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque from a 6.7-liter turbodiesel while the GT S delivers a cool 503 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque. It’s a tough showdown on paper considering the three-axle Sixty is worlds heavier than the GT but what happens when they actually lineup next to each other? Well, let’s just say that the GT S limps home with a tear in its eye. Oh, and for the record, it was a bad day for Mercedes as the G-Wagon also had a go at the Sixty and it didn’t stand a chance either. With that in mind, go ahead and check out the video below

Big trucks are all the rage these days. Not just big, though, really big. The Devel Sixty is the latest six-wheeled monster to the scene and it comes from a company best known for the outlandish, 5000-horsepower Sixteen. The new truck has seating for six people inside its aircraft-like cabin accessed by an aircraft-like door. Devel debuted the Sixty at the recent 2017 Dubai Auto Show, which is a logical place to debut something so illogical.
Detailed specs are few and far between, but Devel does say the Sixty is powered by a 6.7-liter V-8 turbodiesel making 720 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque. The Sixty also has military-style wheels with a Central Tire Inflation System that allows for changes in tire pressure on the move. And in low pressure in the knobby tires isn’t enough to blast through mud or sand, the Sixty has a winch at each end for recovery.
