Another humorous one here, a nearly one off type car, coming in at $500,000 takes aim at the Nissan GT-R and the Porsche 911 turbo. The actual car was shown this weekend at Monterey, but most of the pictures here look like prototypes. Dark tinted windows, computer generated renderings. Sure ways to drag $500,000 out of me. Every year, there is someone else that "wants" to build a world beater. They come and go like the seasons. They come back around, but then they are gone again.
The car you see above is the Devon Motorworks GTX which it calls a supercar, and Devon claims that it had set a 1:35.075 laptime at the Laguna Seca raceway in California, beating the Nissan GT-R and Porsche 911 Turbo’s 1:39.62 and 1:39.89 laptimes respectively. The company also intends to beat the Nurburgring lap record with this car sometime in the future.
