Ever heard of Devel ?
Well, Devel Motors are based in Dubai, and as you can imagine build only expensive toys. Recently Devel has signed a collaboration agreement with Manifattura Automobili Torino and through this new collaboration the two companies will engineer, develop and manufacture the Devel Sixteen, a record-breaking 310 mph hyper-car and has ambitions to build the Sixty, a 6×6 off roading monster.
The Sixty is a like an Armoured Personnel Carrier that looks as if it’s been ripped straight from a “Mad Max” movie, an imposing black military combat 6×6 for the general public, with huge, sand-eating tyres, a grille that looks like teeth, independent suspension, portal axles and six seats. A motor perfect for a leisurely assault on the Sahara dunes with your entourage.
Information on the Sixty is scarce, with the Devel website saying “coming soon” and the company’s Instagram feed offering only a few hints.
The Sixty’s passenger door is on the driver’s side, opening up like a private jet with a retractable set of steps. Under the hood, there’s a 6.7ltr turbocharged diesel V8 making 720 hp and 737 lb-ft of torque.
Will we ever see this monster go into production? Well for what it’s worth, Devel says you can order it today, with one year to delivery, for $450,000. So it’ll join the expanding ranks of the 6×6 segment alongside muscular oddities like the Hennessey Veloci-Raptor and the Mercedes G63 AMG.
