The quad-turbo V16 engine for the Devel Sixteen hypercar is real and looks likely to reach its goal of producing 5,000-horsepower. A new video from the project's engine builder shows what the powerplant can do now.

Of course, the report gets a little muddled here, with CAR saying the engine would be very similar to that of the one that powers the Bugatti Veyron – the French machine makes use of a W16 mill.

But this homegrown example aims to bridge the gap.
