Fancy an Ultra-rare 1 of 14 Supercar?

Could you spend over $100k on this?

If you really want a Lamborghini Diablo, but can't afford the price tag, today might just be your lucky day.

Recently in Las Vegas, a 1996 Vector M12 has gone up for sale with only 4,100 miles on the clock. They only ever made 14 of these, and it isn't had to tell why! I wouldn't say it is particularly pretty by any means. The 'only' thing wrong with it according to the seller is a minor fuel leak, I however, think this is the least of their worries...

To say this is an American Diablo is a sin, but to some degree it is. It has the same 5.7L engine as the Diablo that produces around 492 bhp and a 0-60 time of 4.8 seconds. Not bad for a quirky American car.

The interior isn't all that bad, in fact I think it looks rather nice, a bit Lamborghini like, just more ugly. But overall, not too shabby

Vector was founded in the 1970s, but didn’t release its first production vehicle until 1989. By the early 90s the company was already struggling, and it stopped production in 1993. The company was taken over by Indonesia-based Megatech, which relaunched Vector in 1994.

I for one wouldn't feel comfortable with £100,000 of my own money going on one of these, but I guess 14 people have done just this. I am sure someone will end up buying this also. After all, if you can't afford a $300,000 Diablo, why not?

  • A diablo, F40 and Edonis melted and the mush cooled to form this

    • Believe it or not: Because Vector was (while building THIS generation) owned by the same company as Lamborghini. And you'll find a lot of Diablo-parts in this generation-Vector...

  • What's your vector, Victor?

  • I wouldn't set it on fire, because I respect the fire.

  • Aside from the lambo sourced engine, Im guessing you’d have to custom fabricate any parts that need replacing as well. Not like you can go to your local vector dealer to pick them up!

  • Dear God no. Vector has had alot of issues in the past, and I mean it.
