The Vector W8 is my favorite car in the world. From the first time I saw it (as a W2) in the December 1980 issue of Car & Driver, I was in love. It's really too bad that Mr. Weigart allowed his dream to get in the way of his business sense, or Vector Aeromotive might still be making cars today. For those that are curious, as far as I know, there is no difference between the W2 and the W8. I don't know why the name was changed. As for the Avtech WX3 / M12, the main difference is the engine. The company that bought controlling interest in Vector also owned Lamborghini, and made the decision to use the Lamborghini V12 instead of the extremely expensive, yet less reliable V8 twin turbo. There were also some minor body modifications to improve the car's high-speed stability.
Please note, I found all of these images on the web. Some of them I even remember where, and have given credit.

Also, if you want a link back to your site, please let me know, and I will be happy to add one.
