2010 Devon GTX walkaround with Jay Leno and Justin Bell – click above to watch the video

Celebrity car-lover Jay Leno was up in Monterey this year, helping to auction off some charity items and checking out every car that caught his fancy. One such car was the newest all-American supercar, Devon's GTX. Jay spotted the car on the concept lawn at Pebble Beach and had development driver Justin Bell give him a walkaround. Fortunately, someone had a camera rolling to chronicle the experience for a Jay Leno Garage segment.

Click through to the jump and you'll hear Justin mention some interesting stats on the car: 3,000 pounds, 650 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque to name a few. That means that this limited production designer sports car will have a much better power-to-weight ratio than the Viper ACR with which which it shares some DNA. In fact, the Devon's numbers mirror those of the Ferrari Enzo, although the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano was reportedly the actual benchmark for the car. No wonder it has been setting production car lap records.

Our favorite part of the video is when Jay fires the GTX up. We can tell you from firsthand experience that the Devon crew has done a terrific job of making their creation sound as good as it looks and performs, and you can get a taste of that in the video. We'll have a lot more Devon news for you in the near future, but for now, follow the jump and watch the clip.

      Reminds me of TVR. Gorgeous on the outside w/ great power to weight ratio.

      Interior is an afterthought. the HVAC looks like they sourced parts from the local dollar store.

        I completely agree about the TVR resemblance, which isnt a bad thing in my opinion.

      The Devon looks like a caricature, like something out of a cartoon in the New Yorker.

      The last time I checked, the LS7 was the best naturally aspirated engine built in America.
      Many of us feel it's the best in the world....period.

      I not overly impressed with the Devon, yet.
      I'd rather spend my money elsewhere.
      Justin Bell came across like an arrogant pratt in this piece.

      i absolutely love it.

      I actually quite like the design of the car. especially the wheel arch area and the tail lights. Actually the whole backend is nice. This car reminds of a good looking version of the 8c.

      I actually like it. Way more thought put into the design than other small market supercars. Yes the interior isn't great but it's better than the Viper and not even close to the worst supercar interior I've seen. I agree on the LCD instrument cluster though, the sun washout will be terrible. Sometimes safety and ergo requirements are a good thing.

      I just figured out what the front looks like General Grevious from the Star Wars Clone wars or whatever it was.

      I love the interior except for the LCD. I've had a thing for McIntosh dials since I was about 10.

      I know what they're trying to do, but the lcd screen dash display just doesnt do it for me, looks like something you'd see in a poorly done Fiero kit car. I also know its only a concept for now, but that feature alone ruins it for me.

      I have a harmon kardon system on my mac and when Jay started that thing up there was a viper in my house! I couldn't hear them! LMAO

      I like that it's based of the Viper. It kind of shows what SRT could do if they could make the car more expensive.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Lol at 13 seconds to go when Jay says "Oh the annoying golf bag" and the Bell's consequent reply. Priceless. Second best part, best part was when the car started. Dear automotive gods that engine sounds amazing.

      Does this car ride on the Viper Chassis? I know it has a Viper engine but thats it.
