Wow one of the rarest cars in the world few people have heard of... incredible spot! I have a few questions: First, has the owner ever been to Beverly Hills before? I know there's a silver W8 that shows up sometimes there but I don't know any info about this yellow one. Second, was this the only year the owner brought it to Carmel?

Andrew, I don't doubt you. I agree the 3 speed was a terrible idea, and there's no visibility, and I've never even seen a W8 (seen 2 M12s though). However, all of the things I've read say it's a very well put together, reliable, and relatively cheap to maintain supercar, if you don't abuse it (cough Agassi cough cough).

Andrew, I agree. I the W8 is bad..the M12 is even worse. Vectors are purely junk and horrid ugly.

Andrew, the W8 is incredibly well made and very reliable. The M12s were indeed pieces of sh*t though (thanks to Megatech!). This guy makes terrible videos, but the info is legit...

Hmmm... This was 6 years ago so I'm trying to remember. Either a D300 or a D40x I think!

Great shot! What camera did you use?

Probably because very few cars get attention like a Vector does. Even during car week people are drawn to it. That said it really is horribly useless as a car.

The interior does look like a late 80s car audio shop threw up inside it. I've seen alligator leather seats in one as well.

That is true of the later W12s. The W8 used a twin-turbo 6L Chevy V8s
