Vector W8 is wonderful and weird

Ultra-rare exotic cars have an incredible appeal, most particularly due to their unique and striking design, although they are considered to be quite expensive, never reaching a practicality in the real world. If one can find a Ferrari in almost every part of the world, the same thing cannot be said about a Vector W8 because only 17 units were built in the 90's with costs of $445,000. This car is unique because the engineers designed it so that it would last the life of its owner provided it was appropriately maintained. Its design was based on a racing car, more exactly an aluminum honeycomb semi-monocoque that was held together with 5000 rivets from the airplane industry. A 6-liter V8 produces a power output of 630 HP, while the aerodynamic body makes the car reach 220 mph or 354 km/h.
