Vector W8

WOW what a fuckin machine! this 700hp Beast “flies like it’s on rails!” 4 wheel disc 13 inch Bembo brakes are one of the best combinations for this “super fly machine!” The Vector W8 was a sports car produced from 1989 to 1993. It was manufactured by Vector Aeromotive, and was designed by Gerald Wiegert and David Kostka. The company claimed the newest and most advanced aerospace materials were used in building the W8s, which they said justified applying to the car the term “Aeromotive Engineering.” Just 19 W8s were produced (17 customer cars and two pre-production cars, the prototype W2, and two prototype Avtech WX-3 and AWX3R with a mock up of the 7.0 liter DOHC TT engine evolution). A total of 22 automobiles produced by Vector Aeromotive over the life of the company. The car originally sold at retail for up to $455,000 USD new (on today’s used market they are available from $200,000 to well over $1 million depending on the condition of the car.

The W8 was essentially an upgrade of the same company’s earlier prototype,

the Vector W2 was derived from Group C racing technology, and roughly 5,000 aircraft specification rivets were used in the car’s assembly. Everything on the Vector was designed to last the life of the owner, assuming reasonable maintenance. The body was made largely of lightweight carbon fiber and kevlar, known for its strength, and lightness. The car was based around a Rodeck resleevable V8 racing engine, coupled to a three-speed B&M modified transmission. The engine had twin turbochargers, which produced an advertised 625 bhp (466 kW) at 5700 rpm and 630 lb·ft (854 N·m) of torque.
Aerodynamics are amazing on this car Just as sexy as it gets huh!
