I am much more fan of the W series vs the M series. Hadn't noticed the design of the rear spoiler on the M series was very similar to Pete Brock's Ghia Sport 5000 back in 1966.

The teal one pictured is the WX3. It's the design that Megatech borrowed to produce the M12.

How many black M12s were there? I saw a black one at the Peterson Museum in California last year.

Just reading my old magazines & read that the first 2 W8's were headed to Saudi Arabia...but only 1 went? I'm also curious about the purple one & its "delivery" , as I read an odd story on a forum but not sure what's true..?

Also, did the production cars have heads up display? I've noticed the control knob for it, but it isn't mentioned in any of my magazines...

This is not an Indonesian "M series"
It is the original Jerry Wiegert built Vector Avtech WX3.

Well, it was purchased by the Emir of Qatar who then gave it to the King´s son Mohammed bin Fahd as a present.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muhammad_bin_Fahd

The car was shipped from California to Doha, Qatar first.
Unfortunately, it is close to impossible to get any further info on today´s whereabouts of the last missing VECTOR W8.
Chassis 011 is the car that was used for the official VECTOR W8 borchure and 1992 press photos:

This is the prototype M12, the brochure car:

The car was later repainted black and sold to Canada on ebay for a mere 50.k US$.

vectorfiles,

You seen to know quite a bit about them.... Are there any in Florida???

I would love to have the opportunity to do a proper photoshoot with one... I always thought they were one of the best looking cars ever designed.

When I talk about a proper photoshoot... I mean do something like this:
