2010 Devon GTX Introduced at Pebble Beach
According to the manufacturer, the Devon GTX will feature "the most powerful naturally aspirated production powertrain system on the market today."
Race-inspired, the 2010 Devon GTX features a 8.4-liter V-10 engine that produces 650 horsepower (484.7 kW) at 6100 rpm and is mated to a track-proven six-speed manual transmission. In validation testing earlier this year, the vehicle set production car lap records at both Willow Springs Raceway and Mazda Raceway at Laguna Seca.
"It was not a specific goal to set track records at that stage of validation, but the car outperformed even our aggressive goals," said Devon Motorworks validation and testing leader Justin Bell, a former 24 Hours of Le Mans champion, in a statement for the press. "We are looking forward to additional testing, where I'm certain the GTX will eclipse any time we've set to date."
The GTX is built out of aircraft-quality carbon fiber body and it boasts “up and forward” articulating doors, distinctive body two-tone wheel surrounds, minimal front/rear overhangs and dual center rear exit chrome exhaust ports. On the inside, the racing look is extended through carbon fiber-reinforced racing seats, dual-grained leather surfacing and chrome appointments.
According to Devon Motorworks, there will be 36 cars produced per year at its manufacturing facility in southern California, priced at about $500,000. An optional Racing Package will be also available for $25,000.
