The Vector WX-3 is a prototype automobile created by Vector Aeromotive Corporation of Wilmington, California. The WX-3 cost $1,000,000 to build and can be considered to be Wiegert’s dream car.
The Vector AVTech WX3 is basically the identical twin of the original
Vector W8 model. It is built on the same chassis and the construction
of the engine is almost exact. The WX3 model never went into mass
production, so it remains a concept car. Since the WX3 did not under
go the stress test of most cars, the data on it is not fully confirmed.
The intended engine for WX-3 was to have more than 1000 horsepower. But this engine was never completed so under the hood you will see a aluminum alloy 7.0-liter V-8 engine. This beast pumps
out 800+ pound-feet of torque at 4900 rpm. Vector claims that the WX3
has a maximum of 650 horsepower.
The chassis of the WX3 is made of a carbon fiber, epoxy composite, nomex honeycomb core.
Vector Avtech WX3 has a top speed of 400 km/h (248 mph) and makes the 0 to 60 mph in just 3.3 seconds.
Wiegert had also planned a roadster version of the WX-3, named WX-3R, which would have shared all its mechanical components with its closed top cousin. Like the model it was based on, the WX-3R did not pass prototype stage.
