First up is a Mercedes-AMG GT, which goes down in a cloud (actually two clouds) of Sixty exhaust smoke. Devel released the drag race in a short video clip, and we know the identity of the vanquished supercar thanks to a separate video from blogger Mo Vlogs, who was riding shotgun inside of it and provides a more comprehensive look at the drag race. In fact, he also shows us the Sixty outrunning a Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen.
First shown in Dubai last fall, the six-wheel-drive Sixty is powered by a 6.7-liter turbocharged diesel V8 that generates 720 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque. Devel says it does 0-60 in 5.8 seconds.
The YouTube video prompted one commenter to ask whether the vehicle runs on coal and another to remark, "The aerodynamics of a fridge. The looks of an apocalyptic train. The smoke of a chimney." Devel in its post promises "The production version of Devel Sixty will (be) as fast as the concept but with minimal exhaust emission."
Devel is perhaps better known for promising a 5,000-hp Sixteen hypercar, which it claims will hit speeds of around 310 miles per hour, thanks to its 12.3-liter quad-turbo V16.
The Sixty will be built in the U.S. and will go for a cool $450,000. No word on when the first vehicle is expected to be delivered.
