Vector Avtech WX3

Vector W8 Twin Turbo

Vector W8 Twin Turbo

What can I say about the Vectors... They are certainly exotic, and resemble a toned down version of a LeMans racing automobile, but more refined. They are extremely fast; the WX3 has the most horsepower of any exotic car; the 7.0L V-8t cranks out an amazing 1000bhp at 5800rpm. But despite this amazing output of sheer power, it's 0-60 time is only 3.3 seconds, slightly slower than the MacLaren F1. It's top speed is to be reckoned with--an amazing 249 MPH. In comparison, the Vector Twin Turbo seems pedestrian with only 634 horses, reaching the 60 MPH mark almost a full second slower than the WX3. But hey, I'll take that kind of "slow moving" any day! The price tag for the twin turbo, the last time I looked, was $500,000. Does anyone know how much these beauties go for now?
