This can be very well the start of a new era in American supercars history. This is the Devon GTX supercar and in essence it’s a classic American muscle car combined with a European track-focused sportscar. It comes with a huge amount of raw power controlled by sophisticated technology. Sounds like a mouthwatering recipe!

Unveiled today at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, Devon GTX is designed by Daniel Paulin and is a creation of Devon Motorworks.

“We set out to design a vehicle that was quintessentially American, both in its shape and in its performance, Standing still, the Devon GTX tells a story of power, handling and beauty. 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.” Said Scott Devon, founder and CEO of Devon Motorworks.

Beneath its light-weight carbon fiber body, the GTX has a massive 8.4 liter V10 engine that produces 650 horsepower (484.7 kW) at 6100 rpm. It is mated to a six-speed manual transmission developed for track use. The car has already set new lap records at Willow Springs Raceway and Mazda Raceway at Laguna Seca.

Devon will only make 36 GTX per year and each one is bespoke to its customer.  “Each of our customers will have individual needs that we will cater to,” Devon said. “Our philosophy is 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.”

It’s priced at $500,000 with an optional $25000 racing package and will go on sale in the first quarter of 2010. Now that is quit a lot of money considering you can buy a Ferrari 599 for half that price, but Devon GTX is certainly a future classic, and for that reason it’s well worth it.
