A rather unusual prototype has been spied by our photographers in the US giving us our first glimpse of Devon Motor Works’ forthcoming GTX supercar.
Initially to be based on the Dodge Viper, Devon engineers have instead opted to move ahead with their own design caught here for the first time in the metal.
At first glance it appears the production version will remain true to the original concept renderings including Lamborghini-style doors, a glass roof and carbon-fibre body work.
Other observations include a full belly pan and although our spy photographers were unable to discover exactly what’s powering the Devon GTX, they did overhear the engineers bragging about the car’s 480kW-plus power output.
This must have been a landmark moment for Devon Motor Works with Scott Devon, company founder, and British Le Mans champion Justin Bell in attendance to drive the soon-to-be American-built supercar.
The Devon GTX is set to go on sale in the US by 2010 and eventually extend to Europe and other parts of the world following its Pebble Beach Concours debut in mid-August.
