Devon GTX: New American Supercar Debuts at Pebble Beach
Exclusive supercars have typically been the realm of European automakers, but Devon hopes to change all that with the GTX. Rumors and speculation have been circulating for months about the all-American exotic, but the start-up automaker chose the exclusive Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance as the venue to unveil their first creation.
The Devon GTX packs the 8.4-liter V10 engine sourced from the Dodge Viper, tuned to 650 horsepower and mated to a six-speed manual transmission, into a steel frame with carbon fiber body panels. 18-inch front and 19-inch rear wheels are sheathed in Michelin Pilot Sport 2 Z-rated tires, with a 19 and 20-inch set-up also available, housing six-piston and four-piston break calipers front and rear, for superior stopping abilities to match the engine's monstrous power capacity. Only 36 examples will be produced per year at a price of $500,000, and a racing package is available for another $25k.
