The Vector concept evolved into the all-American supercar by 1977. An unspecified V-8 engine would produce between 600 and 800 horsepower and would be able to propel the car to 200 mph.
The car was touted to have the best of everything. Circuit breakers, for example, were built to military specification and cost as much as $15 each, instead of standard 15-cent circuitry protectors.
This car became known as the Vector W2 (“W” for Wiegert and “2” for the number of turbochargers).
