Devel Sixty Is an SUV to Storm the Gates of Hell
After wowing us with the Devel Sixteen, the automaker gave us a follow up with its monstrous SUV
The age of ridiculousness is upon us my friends, and it is fantastic. We’ve got a roadster from Tesla coming that goes zero to 60 mph in under two seconds, cars lapping the Nurburgring in under seven minutes, and Level 3 autonomous driving already here. Then you’ve got Devel giving us a supercar promising 5,000 horsepower. The craziest part about it is, that’s probably not even the wildest car that that company is trying to make.
Enter the Devel Sixty. It’s a street legal, six-wheel drive turbo-charged 6.7-liter SUV built in the USA. If you took Darth Vader and built him a vehicle for a post-apocalyptic Mad Max universe, this would be the car. Devel estimates the behemoth will come with 700 hp and go zero to 60 in 5.8 seconds. It comes with military-grade tires and an adjustable suspension height. And if you’re worried about it breaking down before the zombie apocalypse, it comes with a full one-year warranty.
The interior will fit six seats with an additional option for a seventh. Each interior can be fully customized with the color or your choice. There’s air conditioning, GPS, cooled and heated seats, front and rear cameras along with night vision displays. Devel is asking for a 12-month lead time for delivery. If you’re wondering what this mutant Knight Rider on steroids will set you back, Devel wants $450,000.
While it certainly will pack a performance punch, I’d put this more in the camp of the Rhino GX than the upcoming Lamborghini Urus. Obviously the six-wheel vehicle won’t have the maneuverability of a smaller SUV, however, the independent suspension should add some agility. Bringing such a large and expensive vehicle to the market is not without precedent. The Mercedes G63 AMG 6X6 model has been a very sought-after truck since its introduction to the market in early 2013.
I can’t wait to hear about the Bond villain that has one of these in his garage right next to his Devel Sixteen.
