This is the World’s Most Powerful Supercar. . . And You’ve Never Even Heard of it!

Meet the 5000 hp newcomer to the supercar game.

This is the completely bonkers Devel Sixteen supercar. Its makers are claiming its quad-turbo V16 will produce a scarcely believable 5000 hp, will have a top speed of 348 mph and do 0-60 in 1.8 seconds. That’s about 4000 hp more and 100 mph faster than a Bugatti Veyron. The only problem is, as far as we’re aware, it has done precisely none of those things.

Best Looks From MM6 Maison Martin Margiela Pre-Fall 2015 Collection

It looks like that the latest MM6 Maison Martin Margiela Autumn-Winter 2015-2016 Pre-collection is inspired by pajamas and lingerie. The new season comes with three distinct themes, including Shelter, The Great Outdoors and Indoor Clothing. You are going to see street vibe working essentials with a great inspiration from Western Americana and Japanese styling touches. I personally find that special survivalism theme, which is represented in apron shapes, grommet details and boxy tarpaulin pieces. There is some kind of destructive touch in these oversize, layered and wrapped clothes.

Microsoft Sues the IRS | Paul Thurrotts WinInfo content from Windows IT Pro

Microsoft launched a federal lawsuit against the US Internal Revenue Service, accusing the agency of not fulfilling its legal obligations under the Freedom of Information Act. Apparently, the IRS has hired an outside firm that specializes in litigation to examine the software giant’s tax returns, and Microsoft had been seeking documentation explaining the terms of its contract with the IRS. “Government agencies, funded by citizens, have an obligation of transparency under the Freedom of Information Act,” a Microsoft statement explains. “The IRS has failed to meet the deadline to respond to a valid FOIA request, and we’re simply asking a court to ensure that the IRS meets its obligations.”
