1996 Vector M12 finished in Purple over grey leather interior. Just 6388 miles since new, recent fluid change and full service, newer tires and equipped with the Lamborghini V-12 5.7 liter motor! This car is #5 and is the only M12 built in this color. Featured in many ad campaigns and press releases!
From 1995 through 1999 Vector Supercars produced the M12 during which only 14 examples were produced. Counting prototypes and crash-test cars, seventeen examples of the M12 were created. Power was provided by a 5.7 liter Lamborghini V012 engine capable of producing nearly 500 horsepower and 425 foot-pounds of torque. The 3600 pound vehicle could race from zero to sixty in just under five seconds and had a top speed of 190 mph. Many of the mechanical components were borrowed from the Lamborghini Diablo. Its price tag was similar to the Diablo at around $184,000.00
The M12 shared a similar design with the WX-3. The WX-3 had been outfitted with enough space to accomodate an eight cylinder engine. With the adaptation of the V-12 in the M12, the chassis needed re-engineering to accomodate the extra weight and horsepower. Due to its large size, the rear was enlarged, the cockpit was moved further and the front was shortened.
