For many years now, with the exception of the Corvette, American luxury and super sports vehicles have been the laughing stock of the entire auto world. There are several valid reasons why this view has come to be, with the lack of innovative designs one would say this was bound to happen. Basically the high end cars that are offered by American automakers are in no comparison to many of the exotic European cars. Even Americans perceive their automakers to be far behind the competition overseas.
American car design has been missing a few important traits that have made other luxury vehicles more desirable such as a sleek sexy design that packs a powerful punch. In hopes of rejuvenating the American auto scene and bringing back the excitement that was once associated with American cars, the start-up company Devon is introducing their GTX.
The Devon GTX is encased in a steel frame carbon fiber skin with a 8.4 liter V10 engine under the hood that has enough muscle to achieve 650 horsepower. The Devon GTX reaches maximum speeds of 200 mph and clocks a 0-60mph time of 3.5 sec. Only 36 examples of the Devon GTX will be built per year each with a price tag of $500,000 and an optional $25,000 racing package add-on. From the looks of it Devon may have a winner on its hands but it’s still too early to judge. So I ask you does the Devon GTX have what it takes to revive the global perception of American cars?
