At first look, the Devel Sixty looks like a blacked-out, 6x6 SUV straight out of Batman’s arsenal. Hell it still looks that way at second look, and third. 

Unveiled at the 2017 Dubai Motor Show, the boulder-on-wheels took to the drag strip for a little low-key testing ... and smoked (literally and figuratively) a Mercedes-AMG GT.

How, you ask, when one’s a sports car and one calls to mind a recumbent refrigerator? That’ll be the Devel Sixty’s “6.7-liter turbocharged diesel V8 that generates 720 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque,” according to Autoblog.

See for yourself from shotgun of the Mercedes:

The full video, from YouTuber Mo Vlogs, shows the race from the stands and gives a more comprehensive rundown of the vehicle.

But with a proposed price tag of $450K, here’s hoping the production model will get some filters on those exhausts.
