The Vector WX-3, officially the Avtech WX-3, is a prototype high-performance American sports car designed by Jerry Wiegert. Shown off at the 1993 Geneva Motor Show, the WX-3 was intended to be the successor of the W8 he also designed. The car was intended to be equipped with a new 7.0L V8 with variable boost, capable of producing upwards of 1200 BHP; the prototypes however were fitted with the same V8 as the W8. The car was painted in aqua to assist in advertising the colors of Wiegert's other company, AquaJet, producing personalized watercraft; it was initially painted silver. A second roadster version, the WX-3R, was also produced; a total of two cars were produced. Both cars featured minor differences from each other.
Wiegert had intended to produce the WX-3 but problems began to surface, when MegaTech, an Indonesian company with Bermudan ties forced a hostile takeover of the company, angering Wiegert and leading him to be fired from his own company. When the now MegaTech-owned Vector attempted to produce the WX-3, Wiegert had copyrighted the designs and Vector could not produce the car without his approval; this meant that the only WX-3s ever produced were the two cars produced when Wiegert was still at the helm of the company. Both are currently in private ownership.
