Conceived by a visionary industrial artist, brought to lifeby some of the world’s leading automotive engineers and designers, and proven on some of themost demanding race tracks in America, the all-new 2010 Devon GTX stands ready to stake claimas the next great American supercar.

The 2010 Devon GTX was introduced on the famed judging stand at the 2009 Pebble BeachConcours d’Elegance. The limited edition supercar is the first product from Los Angeles-basedindustrial design house Devon Motorworks (devonmotorworks.com). It will go on sale in the firstquarter of 2010.

“We are so proud to utilize the hallowed Concours stand as the venue to premiere the first offeringfrom our studio,” said Devon Motorworks founder and CEO Scott Devon. “Each year this eventserves as a living homage to the great automobiles of our past, many of which served as ourinspiration for the Devon GTX. By being mindful of classic design, and blending our own view ofmodern transportation, it’s our sincere hope that we will earn a permanent spot in the landscape ofautomotive history.”

The Devon GTX is – on one hand – a race-inspired performance car, offering a 650-horsepowerengine and a complimentary transmission and induction/exhaust system that will make it the mostpowerful naturally aspirated production powertrain system on the market today. On the other hand,the vehicle’s muscular shape represents a new expression of modern industrial design, blendingboth classic and futuristic cues to warn of the awesome power that exists within its shape.

“We set out to design a vehicle that was quintessentially American, both in its shape and in itsperformance,” Devon said. “Standing still, the Devon GTX tells a story of power, handling andbeauty. It’s classical, yet futuristic design promises an incredible experience. Once under power,the GTX lives up to its promise every heart-pounding second you’re behind the wheel.”

The design was led by Devon and noted automotive designer Daniel Paulin. Their approach tothe vehicle was to boldly blend power, tactility and aesthetics into one singular form.

The vehicle’s aircraft-quality carbon fiber body sits atop large lattice-structure center-lock wheels.The interior design reflects the company’s progressive design philosophy and features carbonfiber-reinforced racing seats, dual-grained leather surfacing throughout the cockpit and tastefulchrome appointments.

Refinement, quality and uniqueness are conveyed in the car’s “up and forward” articulating doors,distinctive body two-tone wheel surrounds, minimal front/rear overhangs, and dual center rear exitchrome exhaust ports.

Beneath the skin of the Devon GTX is an 8.4-liter (510 cubic inches) V-10 engine that produces650 horsepower (484.7 kW) at 6100 rpm. The V-10 engine is mated with a track-proven six-speedmanual transmission.

While the Devon GTX has yet to hit an American road, it has made its mark on two of America’smost demanding road courses. In validation testing earlier this year, the vehicle set production carlap 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 outperformedeven our aggressive goals,” said Devon Motorworks validation and testing leader Justin Bell, aformer 24 Hours of Le Mans champion. “We are looking forward to additional testing, where I’mcertain the GTX will eclipse any time we’ve set to date.”

Devon, Paulin and Bell are just part of an international team of performance and design veteransthat make up the Devon Motorworks team.

Former Ford executive engineer Andy Benedict leads the product development team, whilemanufacturing and assembly is headed by Clive Hawkins, founder of ARIA Group. Aerodynamictesting is supervised by Dr. Joseph Katz of San Diego State University while marketing is led byautomotive veteran Jerry Deeney. They are supported by a hand-picked team of experts that willdesign, engineer, manufacturer and present vehicles on a coach-built basis to a select anddiscerning customer base. “We have assembled an international team of highly qualified expertswho have set out on an uncommon task. But with an American “can-do” attitude, our goal ofcreating an American supercar has been realized”, said Devon.

Devon Motorworks will produce 36 cars per year at its manufacturing facility in southern California.On sale beginning in the first quarter of 2010, the cars will be sold for $500,000. An optionalRacing Package will be available for $25,000. The vehicles will be sold and serviced directlythrough Devon Motorworks.

“Each of our customers will have individual needs that we will cater to,” Devon said. “Our philosophyis to blend their tastes with our exacting standards and in the spirit of bespoke craftsmanship,create a car that is both identifiably a Devon GTX yet singular to our customers’ specifications.We want to make sure we have a direct relationship with our customers.”
