What Is The Top Speed Of The Emperor Vectre?

Fans interested in taking the Emperor Vectre for a spin will be interested to know that the car’s top speed on the game files is an impressive 92.3mph (148.5.75kmh).

The actual in-game speed for the Emperor Vectre has yet to be tested, but should be known in the next 24 hours after it's been tested on the track more thoroughly.

Is The Emperor Vectre Worth It?

If you've got the cash, the Vectre offers a V8 engine in a weighty, but powerful vehicle. It's also a tight steer, meaning you'll want to be confident in your cornering abilities.

It's powerful, but that power needs to be harnessed – so be prepared to spend some money on repairs while you get to grips with it.

If you have the cash to splash - and let's face it, players can earn plenty of money with the new daily exotic exports car list - we reckon it's at least worth a look.
