      Doug DeMuro The Gear lever was put there to resemble the throttle of a fighter jet, this car seems to be based on an F-14 tomcat, and the shifter looks strikingly similar and is in a strikingly similar location

      The Lamborghini's engine was not a V-8 though. It did not need to rev as fast to get the same horsepower.

      Thanks so much for taking the time to review this car in such detail... and not drive it. Seriously, I'm glad you took another video to drive the car and I'm going to watch that one next :) A testament to how truly unique this car is :)

    Does this guy hate fighter planes or what? Every statement sounds like mockery. Doesn’t realise he is just a TVclipr, thinks he is the father of supercar industry 😐

    I'm very disappointed. I grew up loving this car. I had an 89 Oldsmobile Toronado with a touch screen monitor and CD player. A 5.7 bored to 6.0 sounds retarded. 540 HP? You could have gotten that out of a Taurus SHO from 89. The Jaguar XJ220 was a better version of this car. A $280,000 Corvette Caviler is all this car is. If I was to pay $280,000 for a Corvette back in the 80's, it'd be the Corvette Callaway Sledgehammer. That car would blow this car off the road with the A/C on. The windshield wipers look like a fly's front arms. This car is SO dumb. My life's a lie with this car...

    Ya, kind of not impressed. Styling doesn't seem unique to me at all. Basically looks like a 80's lambo and I would guess most that see on the street would think that is what it is. Or some kind of kit car. Looks like it was kind of poorly designed, rushed and cobbled together. Like "what kind of parts can we find and throw in this thing and make them work". That brake handle, wipers and front hatch are just horrible lol. The person that did those wipers should be punched in my opinion. I was a fighter jet mechanic in the Air Force around that time. None of that really reminded me of a fighter jet. Most of that stuff looked more like it was out of a nice General Aircraft plane. lIke a more expensive turbo prop or small jet. And yes, the circuit breaker panel is right out of an airplane. It was one of the few things I liked lol. Honestly you know what it reminds me of? A scaled up Fiero kit car. I think for that time frame I would have rather had a Pantera. It was kind of the same concept but done better in my opinion. And less money I would assume. I am more interested in its performance and handling. I will watch that video next. If it was insanely fast and handled fantastic I guess you could overlook a lot of the other stuff. I will admit it looks well put together though. The fit and finnish looked really good. Design wise kind of goofy, but whoever actually put them together did a really nice job.

    No mention of the chain drive? My brother and I were almost investors in Vector motors back then were were very close to the 5000.00 minimum when we started a different business of our own with that money. The return on the vector stock was a bust. Our little adult film company was about the same but damn I was a star for a few days.

  • jesuswouldkillhimself

    The car is different but not that crazy. Think it bbn looks better than a TON of the new supercars.nmost new ferraris are hideous. Lamborghini kinda boring the looking. The chiron is decent but I hate the veyron. Pagani's are pretty. Koenigsegg are a little boring looking like the McLarens. Meh but that's just me.

    Toxoplasmosis and toxoplasma gondii is a parasitic protozoan that is transmitted through the spread of feline fecal matter and infests the lungs, eyes, brains and hearts of innocent infant humans, where it leads to the causation of cysts that damages cones, rods, alveoli, ventricles, axons, dendrites and in particular synapses, more importantly, pre-synaptic clefts, this leads to the blockage of cellular reuptake receptors in ion channels... the SMRI studies the link between this and the on set of schizophrenia, South Australia has an annual loss of 70 million in ruminants... (and Queenslands prisons cost 2.1 million dollars per day and it is $300.64 per day, per prisoner... dole bludgers dont get that spent on them!, did i mention the fact that bent and rusty syringe needles are sharpened on the concrete and steel bed bases before being inserted into arms, the $2.1 million per day is just to house, feed, clothe and maintain the health of these bastards, any intravenous disease is an additional community cost)
    browyn bishop is awarded $700 per day, people work hard for her enabled self righteous taxpayer funded, bold talking persona, like she should be a character in a movie she is that entitled and her character should be categorically indexed as extraordinaire, she is the greatest driver of slaves that the world has ever seen but im certain she owns a cat, so that means her wealth actively harms children.

    Ok...First Off! I use to work for Vector...The transmission is a modified Turbo 425. It came from the front wheel drive Caddy's. Most of the parts for the doors, latch handles, steering column and parking brake are from GM cars, The engine is a Chevy engine built by Shaver's Motors (Torrance,CA). It did come with a driver's side airbag (that was mandatory), passenger airbags didn't exist at that time. The gas cap is for fuel cells and this car has a fuel cell in it...just make sure that the foam inside isn't breaking down. The steering wheel is a modified Fitipazzi (spelling? and at the time a $200 for the wheel) to hold the airbag. The seats are also Fitipazzi (I think?)...The power windows used a universal kit, the name maybe on the motor. As for the company itself...the Investors were trying (at the time) to oust the owner because of mismanagement of the company and owing money to the investors. And last the M12 was originally called the W12 and that was suppose to have a 1000hp twin turbo-DOHC V8 in it.
