[VEHICLE] Wiegert Vector W2
If there is ONE! Supercar made in the history of mankind, it would be the Wiegert Vector W2 Prototype.
Build in 1973, this beast had no less than a mid-engine Twin Turbo Chevy V8 with a torque of nearly 600Nm at 4800rpm.
This machine, which held a ton of Fighter Jet Technologies, had a speed of 380 kph or 236 mph, and had only 4.3 seconds to go from 0 to 60MPh, and 7.6 seconds to 100Mph, and did the Quarter Mile in a baffling 11 seconds!
Do understand, that this is the year of the '73 Dodge Charger, Triumph Spitfire, and the Mercury Cougar, to name just a few cars, or the Detomaso Panthera, the silly stupid Porsche 911 Carrera and Maserati Bora 4700.
Of the three last cars, a comparison of the best (most powerful, read) car of the above three: ... or no... I'll do all three, why not:
Maserati Bora 4700 '73:
Top speed (-pH): 270K/168M
Quarter Mile Time (QMT): Not Found**
Detomaso Panthera '73
Top Speed (-pH): 260K/162M
The rediculous silly Porsche 911 Carrera '73:
Torque: 219Nm at 5100rpm
Top Speed (-pH): 244K/152M
*Detomaso Panthera's Quarter Mile Time is a simulated time, don't ask me why.
**The Bora '73 Quarter Mile Time was not found, but the 1990 was 5.2 sec.
All above data comes from sites like Wiki and the lot.
If they made a mistake, then I did as well.
Now two super cars from that same era: The Lambo Muira '73, and the '74 Countach:
The '73 Lambo Muira:
Torque: 398Nm at 5500RPM
Top Speed (pH): 285K/177M
The '74 Countach:
Torque: 365 at 5000RPM
Top Speed (-pH): 316 K/196M
W2 '73 (prototype)
Torque: 580 Nm at 4800 rpm
Top Speed (-pH): 381.33K/237M
If one is honest, one could see, this monster of a mechanical and technological beast was FAR ahead of his brothers and sisters of that era.
And the looks, even now, could be considered "futuristic".
Pictures - Bolide:
W8 (Later version, same bolide):
It would be cool, I have seen and sat in the w8 (the later version). Problem is i am not sure where you would find the game model as i have not seen it on the usual sites.
True, it's an elusive one (read: strongly overlooked one) for sure.
Heck, I even doubt, there IS a model out there.
Makes things quite difficult, right?
Thought: could you use the base of say the Countach, and alter it?
There are not that far apart, looks wise...?
