Vector W8 Wiki

The Vector W8 is an American sports car produced from 1989 to 1993. It was manufactured by Vector Aeromotive Corporation, and was designed by Gerald Wiegert while receiving refinements by Vector's head of engineering David Kostka. The company utilized the newest and most advanced aerospace materials in manufacturing the W8, and the term "Aeromotive Engineering" was used by the company when referring to the manufacturing process of the W8. Only 22 W8s were produced, including 17 customer cars, two pre-production cars, one early prototype (Vector W2), and two successor prototypes—an Avtech WX-3 and an Avtech WX-3R (roadster)—with 7.0 liter DOHC twin-turbo V8 engines. The production W8 had a base price of US$283,750 when new.
