Vector W8

Although this high-powered vehicle is still one of the youngest of classic cars, it is very unlikely to see this one on the road. In total, 17 cars were produced by "Vector Aeromotive Corporation" until the company was sold. It was a dream of the automobile designer Gerald Wiegert, to topple European Ferraris, Jaguars and Porsches and thus to push forward the American automotive market.

The Technik Museum Sinsheim can look forward to this dream car. Surrounded by Lamborghinis and Ferraris ... the black, spacey, enticing Bolide has made itself comfortable. One need not be a motor expert to guess to what kind of power is hidden flat engine cover: With an output of 625 hp, the W8 accelerates in 3.9 seconds from 0 to 100 km / h, and reaches a speed of 322km / h. Thanks to a predominantly Kevlar body, it weighs only 1504 kg (curb weight). Modelled after the Starfighter, the interior of the super sports car is also looks the part. Since the gear shift knob, a 3-course automatic transmission, is located on the left side, the center console is completely missing. The cockpit, a confusing range of buttons and switches offered every imaginable technical frill of that time, the vehicle self-start was designed technically - by entering a number combination.

"The Vector W8 is the fastest American sports car of all time." 600 HP and a top speed of 320 km / h have not been surpassed since the early 90's. This dream of the perfect sports car is as rare as nice as the sales of the Vector W8 were "devastating", wrote Auto Motor 2000 - thus the plan for a super cars remained just a dream.
