VECTOR WX8 HYPERCAR
WX8 Vector Hypercar


WX8 is currently in development. Appearance and specifications may change in the final version.


 
 

Founder and Chairman Gerald A. Wiegert has designed and created the next generation Vector.  It is the world’s first Hyper-Performance Road Vehicle (HPRV) for the global Exotic Sports Super car market segment. The Vector Avtech WX8 is American made and utilizes an Advanced Modular Mil-Spec Systems approach for design, engineering, drivetrain, and materials technology.  The Vectors new WX8 is the only car in the world to incorporate Marine, Aviation, and Aerospace technology into its design and construction.  The exterior design and cockpit of the Vector has the logic, look and feel of an Advanced Tactical Fighter aircraft. The Vector is a sophisticated U.S. made HPRV machine that takes supercar performance to the next level.

The most powerful Vectors big block 10 liter V-8 engine is capable of over 2,000 horsepower. The durable race engineered all-aluminum mid-mounted high-output engines will establish the new Vector WX8 as the fastest and most powerful production automobiles since the  original Vector W8 Twin Turbo was put in production. 

The WX8 is engineered to reach new heights in performance, comfort, reliability, durability and cost-effective maintenance. Designed to perform, accelerate, and handle like an all-out race car, the WX8 will be built with integrity, craftsmanship and the highest quality components. Advanced American Technology (AAT) integration will make the WX-8 one of the fastest, finest, and most desirable and collectable automobiles ever built.
