Sometimes hiding in plain sight is the best way to get spy photos, and that’s exactly how we managed to photograph this Devon GTX undergoing aerodynamics testing. Patience and persistence also play a big role: besides the obvious, we waited until the Devon GTX was packed up and the hauler was heading out-of-town before we offered these revealing images.

This is the VERY FIRST time that the Devon GTX has been seen, driven on a track and photographed!!
