We recently did a story on the 5,000 horsepower engine in the Devel Sixteen. And the automaker has another cool vehicle that was displayed at the Dubai Auto Show…The Devel Sixty. It’s a ridiculous 6x6 prototype with a suspension that allows it to be lowered into garages and a single door on the left-hand side.
There are no official specs on power but Motor1 reports a possible version of the Devel Sixteen’s 12.3-liter V16. We aren’t holding out breath for a production version anytime soon.
This week on PowerNation Katie’s featured ride belongs to viewer Dave Schultz from Ohio, it’s his 1963 Ford F100. He got the truck in 1991 and along with his friends rebuilt the truck to what you see now. After cutting away a lot of rust he added an Art Morrison rear clip and a Fat Man Fabrication front end and lowered it all 14 inches. Under the hood a stout 510 cubic inch big block making about 500 horsepower.
It’s painted in PPG Dodge “Viper Blue” but kept the interior looking stock. The problem came when the truck was all done Dave has killer heating issues in the cab with heat moving in from the engine and exhaust. He was stuffing towels and sweatshirts all over the cab to keep the heat from getting in, to no avail. His friend turned him on to Lizard Skin and now after the truck had been built sprayed on both Ceramic Insulation and Sound Control. Problem solved. Once again the automotive aftermarket to the rescue! Check it out this week along with some serious tech from our four shops.
