The Vector SRV8 was an American supercar designed and built by Vector Motors in 1999 to replace the Vector M12.

Vector Motors, seeing the slow sales of the expensive M12, decided to design a new car that would be easier and cheaper to build and sell. The outcome was the SRV8, essentially a modified M12.

The chassis came from one of the racing M12's which ran at Road Atlanta in 1998 and featured small changes such as moved suspension pickup points. The biggest difference though was the engine. Vector decided to ditch the Lamborghini V12 that the M12 used, returning to the company's American roots with a GM LT1 V8 engine, basically the same as used in the Chevrolet Corvette and a Porsche G50 transaxle.

A few days after the car's first public appearance the company shut its doors. Only one example was built.
