Yes you read it right
A company in Dubai is making the Super Car of Super Cars claiming to have a V16 engine delivering 5,000 BHP and a claimed 0-60mph of 1.8s with a top speed of 348MPH 😯
Now onto the logistics on if this would even ever be possible 😕
There is a company making super high Horse Power Big Blocks at 632 Cubic Inches and with Twin Turbos making 4000 to 4500 Horse Power engines. However they are large V8 Big Block Chevrolet based engines. The Devel 16 is exactly that, a ultra high Horse Power V16 engine of unknown configuration 😕 The sight just shows blank information about the vehicle aside from the V16, 0-60 and top speed.
Are they just advertising these claims in hope of getting investors? I am not seeing it being possible as the only things capable of figures like this are using Nitro Methane or even Nitrous Oxide and only run for 5 seconds or less down a Quarter Mile. Nothing making this kind of HP will last especially coming from a manufacturer that would have to off some kind of warranty 😛
Update as the car has been video taped (if tape even still exists?) running and it does not sound like a 5000 Horsepower engine in any way shape or form. More sounds like a Small Block Chevy that was built up or something to that extent?
Not only that but, no video of it doing anything other that idling around from what I have seen 😕
So what is anyones thoughts on if this thing is a real 5000HP Supercar or just a crazy fake that was made for attention grabbing? I think it’s an attention deal and wont ever be a production car setting records or we would have heard and seen more by now 🙁
