The Devon GTX supercar has finally been revealed in production spec. Devon has officially unveiled the car at the ’09 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
The big news, though, is Devon’s attempt on the current motoring holy grail – the Nordschleife lap record. It’s set to pack a V10 with upwards of 478 kW, which should help its cause. It’s sourced from the Dodge Viper, a car Devon initially tried to buy the rights to.
Viper fans will no doubt take a liking to the GTX – with the two cars barking up the same tree styling-wise. There is also a hint of Alfa Romeo 8C, Renault Sport Spider and Corvette Stingray, not forgetting those overly intricate gullwing doors, too.
Devon’s attempt at Eifel Mountain glory gained a prod in the right direction this week when the GTX lapped the Laguna Seca circuit in the US in a record-breaking 1m35.075s. It’ll face a sterner test at the Ring though, with the Radical SR8′s 6m55s to beat. Bad news for the GTX is that Radical are Ring-bound once again, with an extreme (but still road-spec) 338 kW SR8LM out to smash its predecessor’s time.
It’ll be driven by Dutch racing driver Michael Vergers, while the Devon will be piloted by Justin Bell, son of Le Mans legend Derek. Place your bets now…
