Information about Devon 

Devon Motorworks, an American car brand founded in 2008 by entrepreneur Scott Devon, quickly made its mark on the automotive scene before its closure in 2013. The company was headquartered in Los Angeles, California, and emerged with a focus on premium lifestyle products, demonstrating a strong commitment to both design and performance.

The hallmark of Devon Motorworks was the Devon GTX, a project that epitomized the brand’s ethos of sculptural power merged with aesthetic beauty. The car, which was introduced at the 2009 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, featured a bold design characterized by its carbon fiber bodywork and powerful 8.4-liter V10 engine, a component shared with the Dodge Viper. This connection to the Viper was more than just mechanical; Devon had attempted to acquire the Viper’s platform from Chrysler, although their bid was ultimately unsuccessful.

Despite the potential and initial acclaim, the Devon GTX did not proceed beyond the production of two units. Factors contributing to the company’s shutdown included economic downturns and logistical challenges, particularly the discontinuation of the Dodge Viper platform that underpinned the GTX. After an attempt to carve out a niche in the ultra-competitive supercar market, the firm closed its doors, leaving behind a legacy of what could have been a new chapter in American automotive design.

The Devon GTX, with its limited production, remains a rare example of ambition and innovation in automotive history, encapsulating the rise and fall of a brand that dared to dream big.
