Devon GTX

It seems that the all-new 2010 Devon GTX will be the next great American supercar. The model was introduced at the Pebble Beach Concours dElegance and it will be built as a limited edition. The model will go on sale in the first quarter of 2010. The Devon GTX is a race-inspired performance car powered by an engine capable of developing 650 horsepower and that also features a complimentary transmission and exhaust system that will make it the most powerful naturally aspirated production power-train system on the market today. The interior design reflects the progressive design philosophy and features carbon-fiber reinforced racing seats, dual-grained leather surfacing throughout the cockpit and tasteful chrome appointments. The V10 8.4-liter engine capable of producing 650 horsepower is mated to a track-proven 6-speed manual transmission. Devon Motorworks will produce 36 units / year at its manufacturing facility in Southern California. Also, a Racing Package offered as an option will be available for $25.000. All of Devon design products have a common purpose of providing sculptural power with recognizable beauty. A single-point mounting system for the shifter assembly is attached directly to the body structure providing an extremely solid and stiff unit. The solid mounting and short linkage results in a package that can be optimally tuned for feel through isolation bushings in the shifter assembly in turn, positive feel is achieved with little or no vibration. The new Devon GTX supercar includes a series of high-performance chassis refinements tuned on some of the most renowned tracks in America, including Laguna Seca and Willow Springs Raceway. A continuously variable damping system will be available on the GTX following the start of production. The system uses electronic control of damping forces in a continuously variable real-time damping system to provide exceptional responsiveness, greatly increased driver control and increased tire contact with the road no matter how the road surface is like.
