Bidders for Prost
To date we have failed to track down Vector Motor Sport but it is possible that the company is related to Vector Aeromotive, a sportscar company which was building supercars in Florida in the mid 1990s. This was owned at the time by Indonesian investors although it ran into financial trouble in 1996 and struggled to survive. A private investment company called Tradelink International took over some of the shares but the supply of available Lamborghini engines ran out after the takeover of Lamborghini by Audi and it seems the company ceased production.
We have heard vague stories that there might be Indonesians involved in talks with Prost but it remains to be seen if there is a connection between them and Vector.
