The Devel Sixteen Prototype, also simply known as Devel Sixteen, is a mid-engined hypercar concept by Devel Sixteen, also known as Defining Extreme Vehicles Car Industry LLC.

Description

Revealed at the 2013 Dubai Motor Show, the Devel Sixteen Prototype, the company's first car, was described as having a "5000 HP" V16 engine, being capable of doing 0-60 mph (0-97 km/h) in 1.8 seconds, and having a top speed of 348 mph (560 km/h).

The Devel Sixteen Prototype's 12.3L (12,291 cc) V16 engine, built by Steve Morris Engines, is quad-turbocharged and produces 5007 hp (3734 kW) at 7,000 rpm and 3814 ft·lb (5171 N·m) at 6,800 rpm on race gas and 36 psi of boost. On 92-octane pump fuel and 20 psi of boost, these figures are lowered to 3006 hp (2242 kW) and 2407 ft·lb (3263 N·m).

The Devel Sixteen Prototype is rear mid-engined and rear-wheel-drive, using a four-speed automatic. The car weighs 5071 lb (2300 kg), giving it a power-to-weight ratio of 1,963 hp per tonne or 1.12 lb/0.51 kg per hp.

In November 2017, it was revealed that Devel had also teamed up with the Italian firm Manifattura Automobile Torino to build the Devel Sixteen. The updated Devel Sixteen model was revealed at the 2017 Dubai Auto Show on November 14, 2017.

D16 Stats (S)

Summary

The Devel Sixteen Prototype was added in the Elite Cars Update, marking the first time the Devel Sixteen has made a playable appearance in a video game. The Devel Sixteen Prototype and Mazda RX8 are the first Elite Cars added to the game.

The Devel Sixteen Prototype is a top-end Class S car, with a starting rank of 1582, a MAX rank of 1746 (the second highest in Class S), and a MAX+PRO rank of 1810. As an Elite Car, it has a maximum tunable rank of 1840. +36 is added with Tuning Kits. Its main rivals are the Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, Aston Martin Vulcan, McLaren Mercedes MP4-25, TRION NEMESIS, and McLaren MP4-31.

The Devel Sixteen Prototype has a cosmetic Speed Modification of 85.74%, the lowest in the game, shared with the SSC Tuatara, SSC Ultimate Aero XT, Hennessey Venom GT, and Koenigsegg One:1.

Performance

The Devel Sixteen Prototype, just like the Chevrolet 2016 Camaro SS and BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage in Class A, acts as a departure from the trend of top-end Class S cars with very well-balanced stats or rocket-like rates of acceleration. Its performance is built on those of the 2016 Camaro SS and 3.0 CSL Hommage, but with even more focus on top speed over everything else.

The Devel Sixteen Prototype currently remains the second fastest car in the game in terms of real total speed, with a maximum total speed of 324.6 mph (522.6 km/h). Since the Lunar New Year 2017 Update, the Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition now holds the record of the fastest car in terms of total speed, with 335.2 mph (539.9 km/h). The Devel Sixteen is still the fastest Class S car in terms of total speed, though, a record that has not been broken for over a year. Due to its weight of 5071 lb (2300 kg), the Devel Sixteen largely lacks in all other performance aspects, especially handling.

The Devel Sixteen, with its aforementioned weight, as well as its large size, is largely considered one of the worst-handling Class S cars, alongside the nanoFlowcell QUANT FE and Cadillac 16 Concept. When making turns, the Devel Sixteen has a very shallow turning radius, even more so than that of the 2016 Camaro SS. Its drifting is especially very lacking, even more so at very high speeds, meaning that Devel Sixteen users have to make use of both the drift-brake trick and entering the corner into a drift earlier than normal. Prolonged drifts are very harmful to the Devel Sixteen's speed, meaning that it struggles to get through some corners with ease.

The Devel Sixteen Prototype has the same type of nitro as the Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition (20.0 km/h when stock), but has unique nitro efficiency, at 8/12/16. This is still considered only average, though, as the 2016 Camaro SS has longer-lasting nitro at 7/10/15. The reason for having a very low nitro stat is due to the Devel Sixteen's extreme emphasis on top speed.

The Devel Sixteen, upon its release, was the best S Class car in the game, but with the introduction of later, better cars, its dominance is all but void now. However, it can still perform well on Tokyo.

Usage

Upon its introduction, the Devel Sixteen Prototype, while having restrictive availability, became the best car in Class S on most tracks until the introduction of the Aston Martin Vulcan, Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, and Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition (the latter two Class A cars). Even with its poor handling, the Devel Sixteen still filled the Top 100 in the Class S leaderboards for most tracks, especially Tokyo. As of the Lunar New Year 2017 Update, the Devel Sixteen's dominance has all but faded into nothing.

Usage (Multiplayer)

A MAX+PRO Devel Sixteen Prototype could be used in Multiplayer, although this comes at a very high risk of being matched against the likes of the Aston Martin Vulcan, Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, TRION NEMESIS, and McLaren Mercedes MP4-25, all of which are just as competitive but for lower prices and better overall stats. This is especially even worse if the track happens to be a notoriously difficult one like Sector 8, Venice, or Patagonia (especially Crystal Lake and Avalanche Alley), where the Devel Sixteen struggles to perform efficiently in due to its aforementioned handling.

Adding on to that, owing to its slower acceleration compared to its main rivals, the Devel Sixteen will need at least 2 laps in order to overtake its opponents.

The Devel Sixteen Prototype counts towards the "Off the Charts" collection.

Price

The Devel Sixteen Prototype currently remains the most expensive tokens-purchasable car to date (not including cars that can be purchased with either credits or tokens, or cars that are unlockable only through special events like Research & Development or though Blueprints), costing A8Tokens 14,500 (first used by the McLaren P1 GTR). Maxing it out costs A8Credits 3,395,600 or A8Tokens 18,720. Pro Kits require A8Credits 1,770,250, 25 of each Class S Parts card, 24 V16 Engines, 24 Mid-Tech cards, and 36 Advanced Tech cards.

Tune-ups cost A8Credits 3,500, take 2h 30m to complete, and can be skipped for up to A8Tokens 250.

Worthiness

Despite being a king of Asphalt 8 for a period of time before the release of the TRION NEMESIS and then Aston Martin Vulcan, it's competitiveness is reduced to nothing.

Adding on to that, it has an expensive purchase price of A8Tokens 14,500, at which point it is much better to get the Vulcan for A8Tokens 250 less. Hence, players are strongly advised against getting this car.
