2009 Devon GTX For Sale
There are only two Devon GTX supercars in the world. One of them was up for sale at the most recent Barrett-Jackson auction and it sold for a ticklishly low price.
The chromed-out version of the Dodge Viper that promised individuality to its lucky owner came to a hard halt when Dodge stopped producing the Viper in 2010, but with a half million-dollar price tag it’s tough to see what’s essentially the bling-bling edition of Dodge’s V10 tire shredder going very far.
On the other hand, $220,000 might be a justifiable price for someone in the market for such cars, and that is what the GTX took on the auction block including buyers commission.

America does horsepower, it even does handling, but aside from the Corvette ZR1, it doesn’t really do supercars. At least not in the modern sense of the word. But one company, Devon Motorworks, hopes to change that perception. It’s off to a good start, claiming to have set the unofficial production car lap record at Mazda Raceway

Devon Motorworks was a Los Angeles, California-based industrial design house founded in 2008 by entrepreneur Scott Devon
Devon’s initial production vehicle, the Devon GTX super car, was scheduled to begin production in early 2010, however, the Great Recession shelved production.
Devon Motorworks was a bidder for Chrysler’s Dodge Viper platform. The bid was rejected by Chrysler for being below the US$10.0 million reserve and with the second-generation Viper upon which the GTX was derived being discontinued, Devon Motorworks was closed.
Despite Justin Bell’s exhortations, Scott Devon choked on his own disappointment. His Viper-based Devon GTX had just misfired, bringing only $200,000, at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona.
The purchaser, Greg Sidwell, a Palm Harbor, Florida, businessman who’d brought 28 of his partner’s muscle cars to sell at Scottsdale, said moments before the GTX went on the block that he was attracted to the “very rare exotic” and “considered it something to add to the collection.”

Devon GTX AUCTION
Rare, modern, masterpiece. Serial #1. Designed by noted and award winning designer Daniel Paulin, the Devon GTX debuted at the 2009 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance to rave reviews as the next great American Supercar. The GTX had lap record setting performance at Willow Spring Raceway and the famed Laguna Seca tracks. Unfortunately, the recession prohibited the car from going into production. However, this only increases the collectivity of this masterpiece. Scott Devon, founder of Devon Motorworks assembled a who’s who of engineers from Ford and Chrysler to help build the carbon fiber super structure and modifications to the chassis and powertrain. One of the world’s top aerodynamicists also assisted in wind tunnel testing etc. **TITLED AS A 2012 SPECIAL CONSTRUCTED** **PREVIOUSLY BONDED TITLE**

2009 Devon GTX – Auction
A good idea, if only it had worked. A few years back, a man by the name of Scott Devon decided that the world needed a new American supercar.

So he appointed a Swede (Daniel Paulin) to design his dream car.
Being a start-up company, Devon did not have the money to develop his own platform or design his own engines. So what he did instead was to take a perfectly good Dodge Viper, and give it some new clothes.
In the end, just two cars were produced, and now one of those can be in your collection. Lot # 1296 at this month’s Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Scottsdale, AZ., is a beautiful black Devon GTX.
