      Doug DeMuro The Gear lever was put there to resemble the throttle of a fighter jet, this car seems to be based on an F-14 tomcat, and the shifter looks strikingly similar and is in a strikingly similar location

      The Lamborghini's engine was not a V-8 though. It did not need to rev as fast to get the same horsepower.

    Doug what's the point of reviewing a car if you can't drive it?
    Next time, just wait for another opportunity.

    Is Doug aware that there's the Italian "Covinni" (probably spelled that wrong), which has two front axles?

    This car makes me re-live Knightrider, Airwolf, MacGyver, 80s Bond movies and A-team eipsodes all at once.

    13:00 And M.A.S.K. ! Who else here was instantly reminded of M.A.S.K. after seeing that last screen?

    For such a rare car, those obnoxious paint swirls are surprising. Someone did not take the greatest care of this thing.

    Hey Doug, this was interesting as I worked on the original Vector in the 70's in Venice CA.

    Been working on airplanes in the Air Force for 8 years. Literally so many things in that car were taken from the aerospace industry. It's so wild to see resettable circuit brakes, a MFD, push button light assemblies and aircraft ECS vents in a car.

    Those headlights looked like they were snagged from an 80s Camaro lol

    I believe the reason the seats are manual has to do with weight. Many modern supercars also have manual seats for the same reason. Those seat motors are quite heavy, and weight is the enemy of a supercar.

    how tf would it havr ran on a fucking 3 speed auto? thats ridiculous especially with over 600 bhp and over 600 ft pounds of torque (around 800 NM) it should have been scrapped!

    If I had a $ for every time he said Vector just to make the video last longer.

    If this car was produced in 1990, there were plenty of vehicles with steering wheel airbags at that point in time. And what a fucking cock-tease re: splitting up of the quirks and drive time. I honestly didn't even notice the time consumed by the video because of the uniqueness of the Vector. Fuck the stats and splitting up the content for additional advertising impressions. Make the video with the content.
