Swedish designer Daniel Paulin has created a new supercar called Devon GTX for Devon Motorworks. Devon GTX is based on Dodge Viper and will debut at the Pebble Beach Concours.
Before that Justin Bell from Devon Motorworks will take the Devon GTX to the famous Nürburgring to attempt a new lap record.
If they can pull it off and make it faster than the Nissan GT-R it could be a huge thing for the company. Being the fastest car on Nürburgring is the best marketing any supercar maker can wish.
At the moment Devon GTX is in design stage, but we do hope to see it on the Nürburgring in July and at the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours in August.
According to Daniel Paulin GTX is designed to look both classical and futuristic. We hope to bring you more details about this new supercar in the near future, until then enjoy first images below.
Noted Swedish designer Daniel Paulin has created a design masterpiece for Devon Motorworks. With a subtle blend of muscle and curves, the design navigates between the past and science fiction. Paulin’s new design language gives the Devon GTX a classical yet futuristic line with exquisite shapes, making it a beautifully designed Supercar in the modern mold.
The interior of the Devon GTX is a Miesian “less is more” design inspiration, as the clean electronic dashboard further demonstrates the intent of Paulin’s vision. A neo-retro gear lever sprouts from the central transmission tunnel, topped by a white gear knob. The shifter connects the driver to the machine, mind with engine.
The Devon GTX is a pure driving oriented vehicle where design intent is all about simplicity, functionality and beauty. Among the most striking visible features are wheel surrounds over both the front and rear wheels which are a different color to the rest of the body. The swooping lines and minimal overhangs achieve the vision of inspiring the future of the sports car. Devon Motorworks will introduce the Devon GTX at the 2009 Pebble Beach Concours.
Devon Motorworks racing team is led by Le Mans and European FIA and GT2 World Champion and proven Trans-Am winner Justin Bell. Justin is also the weekly “Voice of Speed” columnist and Pit Lane Reporter on the Speed TV Network and on SpeedTV.com Justin has worked with the Devon Motorworks development team since the beginning of the Devon GT and GTX prototypes.
In July of 2009 Justin will attempt to break the world lap record at the famous Nürburgring “The Ring” track in Germany driving the new Devon GTX Supercar.
