The Vector W8 is the craziest supercar in history. Today I'm reviewing the Vector W8 to show you why it's so insane, and I'm going to show you all the quirks and features of the crazy Vector W8.

      Just found this video and it brought back memories of the testing Jerry did on the runways at the Mojave airport. It happened over several weeks during the spring back in the mid 80’s if I remember correctly. The most memorable thing about this car was it’s low profile and watching Jerry coil his 6 foot plus frame into it.

    Remember seeing it when it came out parked next to a Countach and if I recall I was more mesmerized than impressed. Countach had a gracefulness to its design, this felt all over the place but also new and wasn’t sure what was going on.

    Crazy? Oh yeah! But it still looks badass all these DECADES later! Definitely NOT a family vehicle! I really want to see the transmission lever being it's on the LEFT HAND side, in order to put the driver seat as close to the center of the vehicle as possible. I'd definitely like to take one for a little test-drive, nothing too fast or anything🤥! Btw, it was 22.

    The gas cap is directly from an aircraft. I was an aircraft refueler and that was a pretty common setup on wing tip tanks. The blank for the number of gallons was so that individual aircraft manufacturers could place it where it was needed and the total gallons of that tank would be known. That was critical because of the need of a precise amount of fuel was needed to be known for weight/balance and available useable fuel for flight time.

    It very likely does have a driver's side airbag. 1990 model years were required to have either a driver's side airbag, or an active restraint system. If my fuzzy memory serves (I worked at a GM dealership in the late 80's), the stering column, steering wheel (aside from the shape of the cover, and the seats are from the top-end Trans-AM/Camaro.

    I like you Doug. I wish you were born much earlier. You would have wished this car as a teenager. We had Rally Cars like the Peugeot, Lancia Delta(which I saw you reviewed), Porsche 959, Audi Quattro, Countach and Testarossa. All of which gave way for what they call Super/Ultra Cars now. I grew up with boxy cars and trucks were for farm or construction work at the time. Families have Station Wagons and if you drive a Jeep Wrangler, you're probably a Military or just a loner who spends time alone in the forest. Now, everything technology driven. Cars are not about driving anymore so everyone wants a Sports Car to feel what it's like to drive. It's not always about speed and tech, it's always about the experience.

    This guys info is wrong in a few areas. The v12 was reverse engineered into a modified WX-3 which was the planned predecessor to the W8. The Lambo motors went into the M12, which had absolutely nothing to do with Vector / Vector Aeromotives. The company was gone, the exterior design used and thats about it. The M12 was junk according to every review. They even coupled it to a M1 Corvette Manual gearbox from memory. The pricing was over $450K USD (Agassi paid $455K and drove it before he was meant to and blew it up). Plenty of info around...It was the car used on The RIsing Sun movie.

    Somethings could be changed in this car. They could move the gear leage and buttons to the center, even if it means to not having the open space under the console. The screen also could be more centered but it is very cool!!!

    One of them went to Andre Agassi, who demanded a refund after his W8 overheated on a drive in the desert near Las Vegas. Agassi’s brother said back then that the Vector was “basically a death trap”.

    As a helicopter pilot, I am pleasantly surprised at how many ‘aircraft’ specific systems they incorporated into this car. From the circuit breakers, gas cap, panels and information systems…Vector did an incredible job in merging the two industries. I even giggled when is saw the compass; in an aircraft, that specific ‘compass’ is a backup to your primary direction indicators. Very cool. Thanks Doug.
