Cool "the ONLY true American exotic sportscar!" (ebay)

I recognize some interior bits from GM. Inside looks haggard, but you can't argue with 600 hp.

I believe that is the elusive fiero-guini... or was it lambo-rero. Either way, it pushes something like 6.2 gigawatts of power and in a pinch, you can put some banana peels in the built in Mr. Fusion for fuel.

I remember when they came out, they were on the covers of lots of car mags.
And they had one of those cars in a big movie back in the early 90's... forget which one though

The vector was THE big dog when it came out. it could out run just about any other production car on the planet at the time.

by todays standards the syling is freaking whack. But when it came out, EVERYONE wanted one.

Did anyone notice a lack of brake pedal and how does it perform with what appears to be a 3 speed automatic.

Edit: Found the brake predal.

Movie was Black Rain (Michael Douglas) and it was driven by one of the Japanese bad guys. American cop vs. Japenese mob type movie.

How about Rising Sun with Wesley Snipes and Sean Connery.
They totalled it.
