Who would actually want this car?

Would I want this car? I see its rare, but for $10,000 in 600 miles, is it any good beyond bieng a rare supercar? Who says yes, who says no?

I would.

It would look better than a pink flamingo in the yard.

you see, at least with most new exotic cars you can everyday drive with it. With this it is impossible.

The Vector W-8 production cars was closer to a concept car then production car. In an ideal world, they would have had more development before the W-8 production started. Since Vector had been claiming they would build cars for many years, they may have been under pressure to start building cars even though they needed more R& D on the car.

I do know the owner of the famous R&T cover car and he drives his W-8 all the time. Clearly a 911 Turbo or Acura NSX would make a better daily driver. I have yet to get feedback from owners of new lambos and Ferrari's on daily driving. I think some people would be shocked at how much headache some of the new exotics are.

Of course I'd want one

I can't see the photo, but I'm assuming it's of a W8? I'd most definately want it. It is the original and awsome. Even if I couldn't drive the dang thing, I'd still want it in my driveway to make the neighbors drool.

I cannot see the photo either....but the $10,000 and 600 miles thing has me wondering what it is....anyone able to help me see what I am missing?

sure i'd love one, but i would probably never drive it, unless i could find a way to actually be able to. like above said, this car spends more time in the repair shop than actually driving... I would much rather have an m12 or the wx3 convertable

Re: Who would actually want this car?

To start, the W8s are very well-built cars. The problem is that since Vector is so small, it's very hard to find mechanics who know the car. That's why that particular chassis had so many problems. The mechanics didn't really know the car, and so they had to manage. But the car was recently fixed by an actual former Vector employee so its fine now. And yes I would definatly take one but of course the WX3 Coupe is at the top of my list!
