The Avtech WX-3 is a prototype supercar engineered, created, and constructed by Vector Motors of Wilmington, California in 1992. Conceived by Vector Motors founder and chief engineer designer Gerald Wiegert as a successor to the Vector W8. The Vector AVTech WX3 is basically the identical twin of the original W8 model, except engine. Now it was 7.0 huge monster behind the driver seat.
Roadster version of the WX-3R shared all mechanical components from WX-3 Coupe.
Both versions were shown at the 1993 Geneva Auto Show.
Originally painted silver, the WX-3 Coupe prototype was later re-painted teal. The single finished prototype is powered by the same twin-turbocharged engine configuration as the W8 prototypes, with an improved flow dual plenum and throttle-body intake tract rather than the Corvette-based system used on the W8 production cars. At high boost levels it is capable of developing 1,200 hp.
The WX-3 has A three-across seating arrangement that was an option on W8 export models. However WX-3s were turned to be the only unique prototypes.
