Vector W2 Twin Turbo Vs Lamborghini Countach Vs Ferrari Testa Rossa (Slideshow)
Every auto enthusiast's dream in the 80's was to have these 3 cars lock horns,& one lucky man had this chance. The V8 engined W2 Twin Turbo , 20 years advanced in my opinion (5 point seat belts, kevlar-5 years before the F40, heads up display, navigation system, LCD computer data screens,flush mounted glasshouse, ABS, 600 hp/ 190+ mph in the day that the countach was proud of 455 hp/ 181 mph, 3 seat configuration, fighter jet buttons, circuit breakers, etc..)- this V8 supercar was facing the V12 Countach (LP500S although the QV was already out) & the flat 12 Testa Rossa. The Testa Rossa, in the tester's opinion won for being the most user-friendly, but even he admitted that the other two were super-exotic. It's a pity that the W2 never saw production & had to wait 3 additional years until it's revised version, the W8, appeared in 1990. By then, the Diablo had been shown to the world, & the Countach was laid to rest-proudly. With all due respect to the current supercars, it doesn't come more exotic & crazy than the 80's supercars. The W2, Countach, 288 GTO, Pantera GT5, Aston Martin Bulldog, just to name a few, will always be regarded as some of the most exotic supercars ever to grace the auto world.
