Vector W8

Vector W8

The Vector W8 was originally a sports car which was produced from the years 1989 up to 1993. It was brilliantly manufactured by the Vector Aeromotive, and was beautifully designed by David Kostka and Gerald Wiegert. The company claimed that the finest, newest and most fine advanced aerospace materials were used in building the W8 cars, which they boldly said it justified applying the car the term "Aeromotive Engineering". Mere 19 W8 cars were produced which included 17 customer cars and two other pre-production cars, namely the prototype W2, and other two prototype Avtech WX-3 and a AWX3R with a 7.0 liter DOHC TT engine. A total of 22 vehicles were produced by the Vector Aeromotive Company over the entire life of the company. The Vector car was originally sold at retail price for up to $455,000 USD. The car came with a sturdy honeycomb semi-monocoque, which attributed it with mind blowing strength capabilities, making it ideal for long runs.

Vector W8 was essentially a vital upgrade of the Vector’s earlier prototype, which was known as the Vector W2. The W8 had an aluminum honeycomb semi-monocoque, which was very strong and sturdy and was derived from the pioneering Group C racing technology. The high end technology employed for its crafting can be understood from the fact that 5,000 aircraft class specification rivets were fairly used in the Vector car's assembly. Whatever one can think of, literally everything on the car was designed to carefully last the life of the proud owner. Also assuming reasonable maintenance was an important factor linked with these cars as they needed very little or almost no maintenance. The strong body was made nicely and largely of light composition of carbon fiber and Kevlar, both of which are known for its extreme strength, and lightness. Some modifications were also done which included the elimination of few grills, a revised rear wing, nice mirror intakes, lower front fascia and newer air splitter, and a front grill.
