With just 17 Vector W8’s being produced, the supercar has gone onto become a true collector’s must-have and is still a household name for most automotive enthusiasts and thanks to its dramatic styling, and massive twin-turbocharged V8 racing engine, the Vector W8 also promised to be one of the world’s fastest supercars in its hey-day.
As a matter of fact, Vector claims that the car could sprint all the way to over 220mph thanks to its engine delivering an impressive 625hp at 5,700rpm and 630lb-ft of torque. However, thanks to competition from the much more popular Lamborghini Countach and the Vector’s near-$500,000 price tag, production ended just four years after it had begun.
However, a few Vector W8’s are still kicking around and automotive photographer Andrew Olson recently stumbled upon the extremely rare Vector W8 in Beverly Hills!

wow, the last time I saw one of these as in Gran Turismo. I think they were kinda shitty in the game but I wonder how they perform in-person.
