Quote of the Day: Devon Knows How They Make It So Creamy Edition
August 16th, 2009 8:50 AM Share
Autoblog occasionally gives me flash-backs, as they have with their blog on the Devon GTX.
The California-based design studio and upstart automaker created the GTX as an American answer to the ultra-exclusive sports cars hailing from Europe. Housed within the steel structure and carbon fiber body lies an 8.4-liter V10 putting 650 hp (at 6,100 rpm) to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual gearbox.
But credulity has its price:
Devon plans to produce 36 cars each year, carrying a price tag of $500,000, with a racing package commanding another $25,000.

Pure automotive ambrosia!
And this will likely be one of those others... Fisker did it somewhat right, because he got the styling right. Pagani's biggest coup was his styling, also... although by creating his company to specialize in carbon-fiber work for outsiders, and by using the best mechanicals possible, he's reportedly made cars that are... *gasp*... reliable, also. It's all in the style. And this car doesn't have much of it. I don't even know if it's as poster-worthy as the Viper... actually.
At a first glance that looks like an Alfa badge in front of that thing. Sure not pretty looking like Alfa's usually are.
