Never even heard of Devon as a car maker. Looks pretty cool though.
It's a weird looking car, but at 650hp who would agrue? #27 looks like she's built for speed lol
There wasn't that much online – the manufacturer's site is practically barren. Wiki yeilded a simple article found below. The short of it is that it is based upon the dodge viper and doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon… probably financing issues, I would assume anyway.
There's lots of info and videos online about this car. It was ridiculously over priced at $500,000 for basically a Viper with a redesigned body and interior. And since Scott Devon lost his bid to buy the Viper program from Chrysler the car has had to be shelved. Until Fiat decides the world needs a Viper replacement, i doubt this car will ever be put into production unless Scott Devon finds another chassis to use for his cars. I think a ZR1 based car would be an adequate substitute.

I wasn't sold on this until the black one. Sexy.
this is what you get when you mate a Corvette with a Viper
with the ecomomy in the tank. might not be aa good time to start a new car company
Way to be late to the game guys. This car only ever existed as a concept car. Its based on a Viper and the company tanked 2 years ago when they realized the economy sucked and the Viper was being in danger of being axed (which as we all know it was).
Looks like a spin off the TVR
In my opinion this eomornus development could be the death knell for North Devon, particularly the coastal villages and towns such as Woolacombe and Ilfracombe etc. These coastal towns rely on the income generated by tourism and it’s associated buisinesses. I myself visited North Devon for holidays and weekend breaks for many years before I decided to move from London to Ilfracombe. The main reason for my holiday visits was the wonderful coastal scenery and unspoilt views. Had there been a huge industrial windfarm the size of the Isle of Wight just off the coast visible from miles inland, I would only have visited North Devon once and I certainly would not have moved to the area!If I, as a former tourist, feels this way, then I’m sure the majority of other tourists would feel the same. Also, by RWE’s own admission the surf along the coastline will be adversely affected’, this can only mean very little or no surf. This is a huge industry in North Devon and another reason why many people visit this area.I do hope common sense prevails and that this is not already a done deal’.
