The Vector W8 Is the Craziest Supercar Ever Made

The Vector W8 Is the Craziest Supercar Ever Made
this is a

vector

w8 and it is quite simply the single

craziest

supercar

ever

made

that's a bold claim because there are a lot of crazy

supercar

s but this one wins the all time

craziest

today I'm going to review the

vector

w8 and explain why I've borrowed this

vector

from a viewer here in New Jersey which is no easy feat because

vector

only

made

about 20 of these during this cars production run from the late 1980s to the early 1990s now despite its rarity most car enthusiasts know
the vector w8 is the craziest supercar ever made
about the

vector

mostly because of its absolutely rediculous styling which I truly believe is the most insane styling of any car

ever

to reach production in the entire history of the car industry but the insanity of this car's styling is only part of the craziness of this car the w8 used a 6 liter v8 that was a modified version of the Chevy Corvette v8 from the time but then it was twin turbocharged for 625 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque for reference the Lamborghini Countach of
this era was only making about 450 horsepower now interestingly

vector

mated this monster engine to a General Motors three-speed hydra-matic automatic transmission that had also been used in motor homes and rvs in the 1970s I'm not kidding then there was the company itself

vector

wasn't supposed to be an automotive company but instead rather an aero motive company because founder Jerry y Gert wanted the car to be sort of a fusing of automobile and jet airplane and I don't just mean
that in terms of styling there's more to it than that you'll see what I mean in a few minutes migrant also wanted

vector

to be sort of the American

supercar

America's answer to Ferrari and Lamborghini but

vector

always struggled to be a viable company as an example the m12 which was built after this the successor to the w8 used a lamborghini v12 but

vector

had trouble paying Lamborghini for the engines and so at one point

vector

actually offered one of these two Lamborghini as
payment for m12 engines which Lamborghini accepted there was also a hostile takeover attempt of

vector

from a company in Indonesia which Jerry wag art successfully sued to stop from happening but back to the w8 now at the time this car came out

vector

said it would do 0 to 60 in 3.9 seconds and it could hit a top speed of 240 miles per hour but magazine tests from the time said 0 to 6 - is more like 4.2 seconds and the top speed was probably around 210 to 220 miles per hour now that's still
an incredible figure and it would have

made

this the fastest production car in the world at the time it was on sale but nobody

ever

tested it now the sticker price when this car was tested by magazines 30 years ago was around two hundred and eighty-five thousand dollars which translates to about six hundred thousand dollars in today's money and yes

vector

only

made

twenty of these for the entire world which makes this one of the rarest cars I have

ever

tested and today I'm going to
review it first I'm going to take you on a tour of the w8 and I'm going to show you all of its mini quirks and features then I'm gonna get it out on the road and drive it and then I'm going to give it a dug score and for more of my thoughts on the w8 click the link below to visit autotrader.com slash oversteer where I've also rounded up a list of some other crazy 1980s sports cars currently listed for sale on auto trader all right I'm going to start the quirks and
features of the

vector

w8 with getting inside of it and that means starting with the key I love this because take a look at the key it's just a regular 1980s General Motors key the

vector

w8 used a modified General Motors engine so it makes sense it shares a key with GM vehicles but I love that this is basically the same key plank you would have for a Chevy Cavalier or a Buick Skylark from this era if you have a

vector

w8 and you need to get a key copy

made

head on down to Home Depot
they'll do it for you there for like three bucks and then you can get into you're one of twenty

supercar

but anyway once you have your

vector

w8 unlocked next up is getting in which is actually a little bit complicated because you walk up to the door handle and you see like two little strips and know where to insert your hand it turns out you put your hand in the lower of the two strips and then pull up on the upper of the true strips that's just like a normal door handle and when
you do that then the door opens up you have this very cool scissor door as if you needed to make any more of a statement when pulling up somewhere then the styling of this car was already making now next up before I climb inside this car I want to discuss one other interesting thing and that would be the door latch this car doesn't have a typical door latch like most cars but instead you have this like metal piece that has a cylinder inside it and the door is supposed to line up with that
piece in order to lock and stay closed now after 30 years you would think these things would kind of get askew and there'd be a problem lining up the door but it really isn't a problem at all you go to close it and it lines right up and it closes no problem right into that little metal cylinder you can pretty much do it over and over again and it lines up perfectly each time at least on this

vector

now next up it's time to climb into the

vector

and that's actually a pretty
difficult task because of this enormous Li wide door sill I will demonstrate how I get inside first you get your butt all the way in there if you can then you swing over one leg and then the other ah and then you're in okay so now I'm inside the wa8 and it is time to go over the insanity of this interior and I want to start with an explanation of why that door sill is so wide and that's because the gear l

ever

is there that's right you have the gear l

ever

between the driver's
seat and the driver's door I'm not really sure is repeated in too many other cars now you can see it sitting there in park and like I mentioned the

vector

uses the old three-speed automatic hydra-matic transmission from General Motors and it's operated in the same way you have to pull up on the shift l

ever

in order to engage each gear Park r

ever

se neutral Drive you pull up on the l

ever

you pull back and you go through them all that's how you shift this car into gear now
truthfully the owner of this car told me that the transmission is heavily modified from your standard General Motors three-speed hydra-matic but nonetheless the fact that it's based on that at all is pretty crazy almost as crazy as having the transmission l

ever

between the driver's seat and the driver's door but the door sill isn't wide only because of the gear l

ever

that isn't the only thing mounted over there another item over there is the mirror controls yes this car has
power mirrors and the controls are mounted again to the left of the driver seat between the driver's seat and the door sill now the mirrors in this car absolutely crazy they're basically stuck on to the lower part of the windows in this aerodynamic shape and they just look insane especially from inside the car but you can see pretty well out of them and if you want to move them you use this control and yes they still work you can move around the power mirrors in a

vector

using this
little control next to your seat it goes up down just like power mirrors and any other car it's just a slightly different placement for them now another contributing factor in that wide door sill is the power window switches which are also mounted between the driver's door and the driver's seat now the power window switches look like standard General Motors power window switches but they control some truly insane windows take a look at these windows the way this works apparently is
if you press the button to open the power then this little middle piece in the window actually automatically retracts backwards in order to open up it doesn't go down it pulls backwards now the reason I'm not demonstrating this for you this is the one thing the owner of the car told me not to touch he said

ever

ything else is fair game but he's very worried that these might break and obviously no replacement crazy middle

vector

power window will

ever

exist again now if you look
closely at these windows you can see the little seal that goes around the middle power bit that opens and you can also see this little conduit running to the window that obviously contains the wires that open it up now another interesting item over on the left between the driver seat and the door you have the ashtray and the cigarette lighter you can open that up and that's how you let your cigarette and where you put your ashes in the

vector

you also have a parking break over here but
it's not just a regular parking break it's a very bizarre one that's because it looks like a fairly normal parking break until it curves in order to conform to the space that it has to fit in this parking brake is half normal in the boot area and then half like tilted at a 45-degree angle on the handle area which is so weird but that's what they had to do in order to get the parking brake over there and that's how it works but by far the

craziest

thing between the
driver's seat and the driver door you have these little buttons mounted above the gear selector that say one two three and four now I always wondered what are those those gears but only has a three speeds where are there four buttons I n

ever

understood well it turns out they control the screen ah yes the screen there is a screen to the left of the steering wheel that apparently was legitimately taken out of a fighter jet it was the same exact screen used in what

ever

fighter jet was happening
at the time or at least so says Jerry Y Gert who created

vector

now this screen is controlled with these four little buttons above the gear l

ever

and they all pull up a different type of screen and yes in this

vector

the screen is still working beautifully ok so let's go through this now you can see along the bottom it describes what each screen does and screen number one if you press button number one that would be the main screen that shows your typical main important items for instance
the vector w8 is the craziest supercar ever made
over on the left you have what gear you're currently in PR NDL and yes this does work in real time as you move the gear selector it correspondingly moves on this screen to let you know if you're in Park r

ever

se neutral Drive that is really really impressive to see on an old-school screen like this now also on that number one screen or the main screen it shows you your current fuel level it also shows you your current speed and yes again this updates in real time as you drive along you
can see it lets you know what speed you're going and updates how fast you're going this is the speedometer in the

vector

this is how it works on this number one main screen as you drive along same deal with rpms again this updates in real time as you drive along accelerates slow down your rpms change and the change is shown on this screen now this screen also shows a couple of other pieces of information specifically your current odometer reading and also the current time now you move on
to screen number two by pressing this little two button above the gear l

ever

and this is the performance screen and it shows various different car functions for example your engine temperature your oil pressure and various other different car items you might want to see in a performance setting to kind of let you know how all of your vehicle systems are doing now interestingly if you press button number three that also is a performance screen it shows a couple of transmission items like
transmission temperature it also shows battery voltage again always updated in real time so you know exactly what's going on with your

vector

on that screen and finally if you press button number four that pulls up a screen that

vector

calls your chassis screen although that is a fairly optimistic description because when it actually shows is like this side profile picture of your

vector

and then it lets you know if anything is open like your engine cover your cargo area cover or your door
and yes in it updates in real time you can see if I close the door then it shows on the screen that the door has been closed and again if I open the door it shows on the screen that the door has been opened updating the screen in real time that is just one of the coolest things to see and next up speaking of opening things and specifically opening the door in the

vector

here's how you do it you reached over to the door panel and there's a little door latch you pull on that and then kind
of push it up in the door will do the rest and that's how you open the scissor door from the inside of the

vector

w8 and next up time to move on to the rest of the interior and all of the other

vector

in cabin craziness and I wanna start with just sort of a general overview like I mentioned before they call it

vector

Aeromotive and it was trying to sort of resemble a fighter plane and a car at the same time and so that's why the interior looks like a cockpit you have buttons styled like
an airplane would have you have that screen that I already showed you and if you just take a general look around this interior you will see the aircraft design influence on this interior especially the aircraft from the 1980s and that is very true if we start looking at all the buttons and switches we will start over on the left of

ever

ything where you have the light controls you can see you have controls for the headlights parking lights fog lights all of the headlight controls are over there
instead of just being on a simple little dial they each have their own individual button which I guess helps the aircraft look you also have a button there marked int and that's for interior lights you press that and yes the interior lights still turn on at least in this

vector

to let you read a map or what

ever

while you're driving or writing in your

vector

you also have the hazard lights which below that you can press that and that will turn on the hazard lights now next moving over to
the second row of buttons and dials here - especially stand out one says panel and there's a little dial brt and dim that is the pain'll brightness and you move that up or down and it instantly dims or brightens your entire cockpit like instrument panel in here and obviously it works pretty well now you also have display BR in demand I assume that was a brightness dial for the display screen but unlike the panel dial the display dial doesn't seem to be working at all you move it up
or down nothing happens the display stays the same level of brightness now the buttons that I really like in this row are the cruise control buttons first it's impressive that this car has cruise control at all no other exotic sports cars from this era did but the

vector

was ahead of its time in some impressive ways and cruise control was one of them but the buttons are ridiculous instead of a very simple little turn signal stock or steering wheel control you had four square buttons one said
enable then there was engaged down engaged up and inhibit enable would turn it on inhibit would turn it off but instead of saying on or off enable and inhibit again I guess to feel like a fighter plane with the language used on those buttons now next you move over from that row of buttons and you have the buttons and dials you see below the fighter jet style screen one of them says HUD bright dim and off for a heads-up display only problem is this car didn't have a heads-up display I think

vector

was hoping they would add one later and obviously it n

ever

came to fruition but that dial is in here even though it apparently controls absolutely nothing next to the heads-up display dial you have a dial labeled boost and you can see min and max and you can adjust it you have adjustable boost from the factory in this car and one of the big selling points of the

vector

at the time was intended to be the fact that it used a fairly large engine that wasn't very stressed unlike the
Ferrari f40 with its small turbo v8 and various other

supercar

s at the time and so they actually let you turn up the boost depending on how fast you wanted to go because the thinking was it probably wouldn't harm this large engine and its internals that is a pretty impressive thing you won't see that on too many cars now next to the boost dial you can see there's another little panel of buttons in here these actually aren't buttons it turns out these are warning lights you can
see you have low coolant you have the brake warning light fan in habló oil what

ever

to let you know it's thing is wrong in your

vector

motoring experience now next to that little panel of warning lights you have a really unusual one engine hours this gauge shows how many hours the engine has been operated it has an odometer like I showed you in the screen but it also has an hour's gauge like an airplane again trying to drive home that point that this was an arrow motive company instead
of an automotive company you don't see too many engine hours gauges in cars now next to the engine hours gauge you have this little panel to the left of the steering wheel that has a bunch of different what looks like buttons on them it turns out this is actually like the fuse panel circuits and if something gets tripped you're supposed to I guess push it and then that will reset it so for instance if the audio circuit gets tripped you can press audio that will reset it and get your
stereo back working again I think this may also be sort of derivative and airplane very unusual to see in a car but that is what that was intended to be used for now next moving on from there we have to cover the steering wheel there are a few interesting items here over to the left you have two stalks coming off the steering wheel one is the tilt stock you pull that and then you can move the wheel up or down for better comfort now the other stock coming off the steering column fairly standard
this is your turn signal stock and it also controls the windshield wipers nothing particularly unusual here except for the fact that this is just a regular old General Motors stock again pulled off some regular General Motors vehicle from the 80s and placed on one of the most exclusive

supercar

s

ever

very unusual now next we move on to the steering wheel and I love this steering wheel because it looks like a steering wheel from a bumper car you would see at an amusement park you have a normal
sort of wheel rim but then in the middle it's padded like you would do at an amusement park to prevent like a ten-year-old from getting injured there driving on the bumper cars I think that is hilarious now one interesting thing about this wheel over in that little Bank of warning lights there is an airbag light so is there an airbag in this steering wheel that would be impressive no other exotic cars had that and very few other any cars had that back in 1990 but this car might have an
airbag might not hard to find information about that sort of thing maybe they just put that light in there thinking they would have an airbag later but either a kind of an unusual steering wheel now next up over to the right of the steering wheel apparently there used to be a little stock coming off here for the horn but I guess that broke off you also have the ignition and again this is a regular General Motors ignition switch from this era not surprising given the key but it's kind of
funny to see to the registering wheel you also have a compass which is a little bit unusual especially to see a compass like this instead of a digital display like modern cars have but again this is the airplane thing once again in this interior just trying to prove how aircraft focused the

vector

was now next to the compass you have this stereo which is actually kind of impressive obviously there are a ton of buttons on here but it's just a regular Sony head unit the impressive part is
the vector w8 is the craziest supercar ever made
it's for a CD changer most cars in 1990 didn't have a CD player this thing had a 10 disc CD changer and that city changer was over on the passenger side of the dashboard you could just load CDs in right there as opposed to going into the trunk like a lot of cars in this era now the drawback of course was that meant there was no passenger airbag instead you've got entertainment and music which I guess was a trade-off that people were making back when this car came out now next up
below the stereo head unit and controls you can see there's a little area for climate controls this car has air conditioning in this little panel with buttons lets you adjust the air conditioning and I will say it is surprisingly good it blows cold it blows well good air conditioning especially for an exotic car of this era now if you turn on the air conditioning it blows through four separate climate vents which are kind of small there's one on the driver side a pillar there's two
in the middle next to the climate controls and then there's another one on the passenger side a pillar there these small little vents but you can move them around sort of these little circles and position the air wher

ever

you want and you can change the climate controls using this little climate control panel and that's how the AC and heat comes out in the

vector

now speaking of the climate control isn't that climate vent over on the passenger side let's discuss some of the other
interesting occurrences over on the passenger side of the

vector

one is the fact that the passenger had their own ashtray and cigarettes I so in this tiny little car in this tiny little cabin you had two ashtrays and two cigarette lighters so that driver and passenger didn't have to share it was a different time and next up let's talk about the seats in this car which are rather interesting in themselves first off they're these fairly well bolstered seats I actually find them to be
surprisingly comfortable this was an American

supercar

built for Americans they're larger than maybe Italians from the 80s and that's clear with the seats they're not too grippy or too small they're relatively comfortable now the states have some interesting controls to them they're mounted in the middle on this panel that for some reason says classic in cursive maybe that was the company that

made

the seat controls either way it looks very out of place oh do you want to
change the seat I'll go down to the classic and that's how you can do it now this little classic panel has s

ever

al different controls one of which is to turn on the heated seats this car has heated seats driver and passenger which would have been very forward for a 1990

supercar

but this car also has five other buttons and switches on this little panel one of the switches moves the seat back automatically you press the switch and the seat goes backward and forward depending on how you
press another one is the lumbar support again you press that little switch and the lumbar will sort of inflate to give you more support or press at the other direction and it will deflate and then finally you have these three black square buttons these are unlabeled initially I thought it was seat memory but that is not the case instead if you press them it does like little things maybe it changes the bolsters a little bit or the backrest or something but it has small effects on the seating
position itself now one interesting thing these seats are manual forward and back so despite all of these power controls in the fact that they're heated you still had to pull a l

ever

and throw your weight if you actually wanted to move the seats forward or backward for some reason they cheaped out in that one particular area next up another interesting item in this interior of the fact there is no center console or center divider between the driver and passenger seat it's just one sort
of open cockpit cabin area the weirdest thing that results from this is the fact that the driver and passenger share a foot well area there's only one and that means the passenger has access the petals over on the driver's side so if the passenger places their foot in the wrong place they might accidentally hit the accelerator pedal or even the brake if they go far enough very very and usually and n

ever

see that but that's how it is in the

vector

in another interesting item in the

vector

that would be the seat belts this card uses General Motors seat belts not much of a surprise but the buckle of General Motors seat belts from this area said GM on it

vector

couldn't have that so instead they placed this little red square on top of the GM logo I bet if you peel that back it would say GM on this seat belt but instead putting that red square there gives it the appearance of a traditional seat belt eject button now another interesting item in this interior the fact that
there's no center console means that there's no center console storage but this car does have a glove box which is surprising for exotic cars of this era interestingly it is fairly large and two other interesting interior items this time on the ceiling one is the fact that as you can see you have a large glass sunroof here this is a pop-out sunroof panel there's no cover for it so you were just left to kind of roast in the Sun if you wanted to drive this fortunately like I mentioned
there is very good air conditioning but all the

vector

s came this way with the pop-out sunroof panel you also have a regular old interior rear view mirror here although if you look into it you can see the visibility not so good the rear window is really small and you can't see much back there but you do have a mirror now if you're wondering why visibility to the back was so bad the answer is because it looks like this this is the rear end design of this car and it is truly the

craziest

thing you will

ever

see if you can get up behind one of these in traffic you will really wonder if you're looking at a spaceship that has just landed you have all of these horizontal lines going across the back of the car like only an 80s car could possibly have the rear window is completely contained within these top three lines and then you have these horizontal lines on the engine compartment on the spoiler and then there's another set of horizontal lines in the very far back over the
rear lights now you can see when the car is turned on is where the brake lights are located they're sort of around these little horizontal lines in the back and when you turn on the turn signals in this car you can see the brake lights become the turn signals and back here's this car with the hazard lights on and you can clearly see the brake lights have become the rear turn signals they're not a separate turn signal unit in the back but this is your general rear overview of the

vector

w8 with these unbelievable horizontal lines in back but before I move on from the back of the

vector

there's a couple of other interesting things I want to mention one of which is right here you have this rear grille and mounted on it is the words twin-turbo doesn't say

vector

doesn't say w8 just twin-turbo and it isn't centered it's on a panel in the center but twin-turbo is kind of over off to the side for some unusual reason now below that you have the r

ever

se
lights these little white lights on either side they come on obviously when the car is in R

ever

se and those are the r

ever

se lights in the

vector

w8 probably my favorite thing back here aside from the craziness and the overall styling is the license plate which was clearly an afterthought they obviously designed this car then somebody was like you know you gotta put a license plate on here and they're like oh so the license plate is stuck off in the corner over by the exhaust just ridiculous
to stick it over there clearly indicating that it was not part of the original design process for this car now next I'm moving on to the side of the w8 there are quite a few interesting items worth noting over here I want to start with opening the stuff back here there are two latches located in the door jamb on the driver side you can see there's one on the top one on the bottom there's a little keyhole you can lock them both if you want if you pull on the lower of the two latches
that pops open the engine cover you pull it and then the cover opens up automatically which is actually pretty nice because then you don't have to go back there and unlatch anything while it's hot and running if there's some problem and if you look in here you can see the engine like I mentioned a General Motors v8 modified to six litres and with two turbochargers and you can see how they've stuck it in here this is a very impressive thing although not quite as exotic looking as
some of the other engines in at cars from this era the Ferrari Testarossa the Lamborghini Countach obviously because this wasn't designed by the Italians of some glorious v12 nonetheless this isn't a view you get very often the

vector

s 8 cylinder engine now the other latch back here opens up the trunk there's actually a small cargo area behind the engine compartment you pull on this latch and that unlatches the cargo area you open it up and you can see well calling it a cargo area is
generous it's very wide and very small but you can get stuff in there if you want like for instance 2 baseball bats maybe 3 golf clubs a ski now next step I want to move on to some other interesting items on the side of the

vector

I mentioned earlier that in back there's no badging except for that twin turbo badge interestingly it's the same deal in front this car has no badge on its nose to let you know what it is unlike basically

ever

y other car

ever

the only real badging on the
outside of this car is below the doors it has this huge badge that says

vector

w8 twin-turbo it is absolutely massive I guess it makes up for the fact that there are no other emblems anywhere else on the car you have one on the driver's side and one over on the passenger side this is just one of the coolest car badges in the industry I would love to just take this off and stick it up on my wall I think that it's so cool and someone should put that back into production but it is weird for
a car that took a long time to get to market a lot of hard work from the company that

made

it that it doesn't have any other badges anywhere else next I'm moving on to a couple of other interesting things on the side of the car one is the fuel door which works in kind of an unusual way you pull out this little tab and then you twist it to the left to open the fuel door you can also twist it to the right to close the fuel door and of course there's a keyhole there so you can lock it
and prevent people from stealing fuel out of your

vector

and the most interesting thing to me about the fuel door is the fact that on the bottom it says blank u.s. gallons and I guess the manufacturer of what

ever

the fuel door was going on was supposed to write how many US gallons this vehicle could take

vector

of course did not do that so instead it is still blank now the other interesting thing on the outside of this car is the wheels and they're interesting because this car has wheels on
it and yet here is another set of wheels in the owners garage there's a reason for this when the owner of this car bought it it had the standard stock original wheels on it and in back it was a 315 width for a 16 inch wheel and nobody

made

that size the owner of this car got in touch with the original chief engineer from this car from 30 years ago and that guy

made

him a new set of wheels except now 18 inches in size and then it was possible to find a new tire in order to stick on his

vector

so these are not the original wheel but they look basically identical in style to the original wheels they just happen to be two inches bigger so you could fit a modern rational normal tire on it personally I just like the fact that the original chief engineer for this car is still around and if you call him up he'll make you a new set of

vector

we both although presumably they aren't cheap and next up moving further down the side of the

vector

here you can see a couple more interesting
items one you can now see the merest from the outside or you can see how they were sort of integrated into the aerodynamics of the car often mirrors are sort of stuck on there and they screw with

ever

ything but these almost look like they were intended to be part of the design from day one in speaking of the window you can now easily see from this angle just how insane the windows in this car are you don't just have this cool window that slides open with the power window button but you can
also see the windows curve in the middle you have a flat plane and then they make a turn and go in a different direction down the door this is a really really unusual window design and I would not want to be responsible for breaking one of these windows because I suspect you will n

ever

find a replacement now next we move further forward in the

vector

and from this angle you can see one of its very

craziest

details I'm talking about the windshield wipers and the fact that there are three of
them this car has one windshield two seats windshield wipers you have to on the side by the a-pillar and one in the middle absolutely ridiculous you will not see this on any other car and if you've

ever

wanted to know how the three windshield wipers in the

vector

operate well here you go now next up we move on to the front-end and the

vector

and from your angle you can see just how crazy this car looks from the front how flat and low and wide this particular perspective is it really is
unbelievable to see this on a car but I will cover the styling and a little bit more depth shortly what I want to talk about here in the front are two other interesting quirks of the

vector

starting with the headlights now you can see in this position they are closed a lot of cars from this era had pop-up headlights but not the

vector

instead you turn on the headlights with that button in the interior and then the covers pop down take a look at that again you can see that the covers kind of go
down into the body of the car and then the lights are on and that's how the pop down headlights work in the

vector

now obviously if you turn the headlights off the opposite happens the lights turn off and then the covers kind of go back up and go back into this position where they're covering the headlights for a more aerodynamic look now another interesting item in the front of the

vector

is this panel here which is unusually flimsy all right to open this panel there's a little
l

ever

that you pull in the drivers footwell way down in there and then it opens to this point then there's a little latch you pull here and then you can kind of open this up but as you can see it's oddly flimsy when I open it it feels like it could pop off at any second it's a very unusual thing because obviously this car was designed for high speeds you would expect

ever

ything to be completely stuck down in place but this panel certainly is not more flimsy than you would think now
up front here you have two things you have a fan which a lot of exotic cars have or cooling obviously and you have another storage compartment which is actually pretty good most exotic cars that have a rear storage compartment figure well we've gone far enough and they don't bother trying to integrate one into the front but

did and this is actually a pretty deep additional storage compartment for extra practicality now once you've put your thing back here you can close this
flimsy panel once again latch it down in place and then you're good to go again one other interesting item worth earning up front again lighting related I already showed you the headlights but may be wondering where exactly are the turn signal since you clearly can't see them from your angle the answer is they're under here the furthest front most part of the car sort of integrated into what I guess would be the bumper that's where you have the turn signals you can see what the
hazard lights on probably not the most visible turn signals in the world but hey at least it has them and next up another interesting

item that would be right here this label in the driver's door jamb this is the label that says this vehicle conforms to all applicable Federal Motor Vehicle standards basically the label that says this car is certified for sale to the public it must have been a crazy celebration at

when the government told them they were okay to put this label on
this car it's a pretty big deal and frankly I think

did a pretty fantastic job with that whole car and jet fighter plane mashup because for our last perk and feature of the

we have to talk about its design and I think this car looks most insane next to a normal car this is a normal boring midsize luxury crossover the kind you see in massive numbers on the streets of wher

ever

you live and this is the

now the

vector

looks pretty crazy by itself but when you put it next to
a car that is rational you realize just how crazy this looks the Lamborghini Countach is a crazy-looking car the

vector

clearly is crazier and here's the thing it doesn't matter what angle you staged this comparison from the

vector

always looks like it is from a completely different planet the Countach the diablo they're insane but they still look like cars this thing just doesn't it really is otherworldly and driving it along it looks like a low-flying plane an alien spaceship
something totally nuts and so those are the quirks and features of the

vector

w8 but I have to stop there this car is so insane that this video has run almost 40 min which I found is realistically the limit of what people are willing to watch and click on on YouTube but I didn't want to cut anything out I did drive the

vector

w8 and I am going to show you my driving experience and the Doug score tomorrow on my second channel more Doug DeNiro and when that video goes live I will link it in
