Daniel Paulin, former Ford designer, has created a design concept for Devon Motorworks that hints at a future American supercar.
Known as the ‘design that navigates between the past and science fiction,’ the new Devon GTX is said to be the shape of the future supercar from America.
The exterior features a blend of muscle and curves that won’t have you mistaking this for a German supercar. As for the inside, Paulin decided to go with a more clean electronic dashboard with retro touches such as the gear-shifter and steering wheel that resembles those in a Ford Mustang.
The Devon GTX could be the next American supercar. Scott Devon hopes so, anyway. He’s the founder of Devon Motorworks and CEO of Cole’s Quality Foods. His Web site — the motorsports one — claims that the GTX is a “pure driving oriented vehicle where design intent is all about simplicity, functionality and beauty.”
The Devon GTX put its attributes to good use and set a Laguna Seca lap time “record” of 1.35.075.
