Vector M12

The Vector M12 is an American supercar that never really made it. Children of the 1980s and 1990s that read too many issues of Car and Driver growing up tend to have a soft spot for all things Vector, but the Lamborghini-powered machine just couldn't make a go of it with a price tag of nearly $200,000 when it was new in 1995.

Still, that doesn't mean we don't get a little addlepated on a rare instance of seeing the M12 in action, even if the sighting is a virtual one. Case in point is the video below, where YouTube user DtRockstar1 profiles two of the fourteen cars ever produced. The multiple-angle GoPro video setup might be a little shaky, but its clear the the M12 still moves and sounds like a very rare vehicle indeed.

Oh, one of the M12s is wearing the most patriotic livery we've ever seen this side of an Indy 500 pace car, too. Dig in below.
