Way back in 2009, a small but hopeful automaker called Devon Motorworks came to life with a somewhat shocking vehicle that it planned to sell as a true bespoke American supercar. Sadly, and for a number of reasons (not the least of which was the bankruptcy of its major parts donor), the Devon GTX never made it into the hands of the public.
That doesn't mean Devon never assembled any cars. As you can see, there's at least one Devon GTX thundering down the road. The first Devon GTX, serial number one, went up for auction at the 2012 Barrett-Jackson event in Scottsdale. Powered by the engine and running gear of a 2008 Dodge Viper, this car is completely street legal with a 2012 special construction title.
And now it has a new owner, bought for the sum of $220,000 after a final gavel price of $200,000. We don't know if that's a steal or an overpayment, but either way, we think the GTX is pretty cool. See the car in all its chrome and black glory in our high-res gallery of live images below, plus the video after the break, where you'll also see its official auction description.
