On a note that will disappoint only ultra-high net-worth petrolheads, Al-Attari admits that the 5,000bhp Sixteen will not be street legal, describing it as "more of a dragster." However, he revealed Devel is working on two road legal versions of the Sixteen: A V8 with 2,000bhp and a V16 quad-turbo with 3,000bhp.
According to YouTuber Shmee150, who was at the Dubai Motor Show, the Devel Sixteen will have three versions with different levels of power. Besides the fully grown 5000 hp version, there will be 2000 and 3000 hp variants with a V8 engine, designed for road use.
Anyways, does the Devel Sixteen really have 5000 hp? But probably the biggest cloud of all right now has apparently condensed into liquid form: A new acceleration test shows the 5,000-horsepower, 310-mph, V-16-engined Devel Sixteen is very real, and very quick.
Same, is devel a sixteen?
But despite all that, Devel wants you to know that its Sixteen hypercar, and the company, is still alive and well.

Bloodhound LSR, the UK-based team that made its public debut in September 2015 with an ambitious project to design, build, and run a vehicle capable of achieving land speeds in excess of 1,000 mph, is now halfway to that goal.
