    You can add one more name to the list of boutique builders hoping to break into the automotive industry. This time it's a California-based outfit called Trion Supercars that is launching the 2,000-horsepower Nemesis. It's supposed to be a driver-oriented sportscar and is aimed at the wealthiest people in the world. At the moment it still only exists in renderings, though.

    "We want to be the Nemesis of the Europeans," said company leader Richard Patterson to Autoblog about in the inspiration for the name. The company claims the it's going to be one of the world's fastest cars when it's ready, theoretically packing a twin-turbo V8 with more than 2,000 hp and an eight-speed sequential gearbox. The company believes that its creation could hit 60 miles per hour in 2.8 seconds and reach a top speed of over 270 mph. If that is the case, then it would put the newcomer against the heavyweights like the Hennessey Venom GT and Koenigsegg Agera One:1.

    All of these figures are just speculation until its wheels actually hit the road, though. Patterson says a prototype will test this year, and sales will begin next year for around $1 million each.

    The Nemesis has a body and chassis made from carbon fiber, and the interior features digital panels to display the gauges, plus a screen for Internet connectivity. The company is also touting the car's Predator Mode that modifies the interior lighting, ride height, suspension tuning, exhaust and rev limits to make it even more aggressive. With a trunk large enough to accommodate a set of golf clubs, it even has a touch of utility.

    The problem with these high end, boutique automakers is that until they launch a product their claims are difficult to believe. The Nemesis is making some huge promises that are going to be a challenge to live up to, to say the least.
  2. Lead designer, Tyler Austin, issued a statement via his mom:

    "This car is awesome!"
  3. I see a bit of P1 from the rear and Ksegg from the top, and that profile is hilariously ugly/boring.
  4. will never ever be built

    and if by some miracle they make it to pre-production stage, it will be an absolutely terrible car.
  5. What video game is that from?
  6. I dunno, seems pretty brutal and apocalyptic to me.
  7. It certainly looks more so than any of the recent Koenigseggs.
  8. Pretty much a collaboration of all the latest supercars.
  9. /thread
  10. Every little fledgling car company who thinks they can make a 1000+hp supercar to rival cars from real companies like ferrari, lambo, pagani, mclaren etc need to have a look at how successful the Zenvo ST1 has been.

    then give up.
  11. But if I tell the motoring world that I can make a car with 1400hp and that can do 400km/h+ and break 2G lateral loads all in a bundle that weighs less than 1400kg and will hold several track records I am sure to get all the arab oil monies
  12. Articles like this are nice and all, but until I see some paper taped together in the shape of a prototype, I just can't take it seriously!
  13. hahaha
  14. Because if everybody did that, there wouldn't be any real companies like Lamborghini, Pagani, Mclaren, etc. They were all fledgling start-ups at some point, out to take on Porsche and Ferrari.
  15. yea maybe
    but it's not going to happen in America.
  16. Sweet Vector
  17. Innotech will probably like it.
  18. Looks like my running shoes
  19. Wow looks like the agera r finally america deserves a car like this

    Trion Nemesis to Reach Production in 2016

    Get ready for an American 2,000-hp supercar heading for production in 2016.

    The Trion Nemesis packing a 9.0-liter twin-turbo V8 is scheduled to be built in January 2016 as it looks to best some of Europe’s quickest supercars including the Bugatti Veyron and Koenigsegg One:1 according to a report from Autocar . With a reported top speed of over 270 MPH and being able to accelerate to 62 MPH from a standstill in 2.8 seconds, the Trion Nemesis looks to put America on the map in terms of supercars.

    The Nemesis will be built on a carbon fiber monocoque chassis with a pushrod-based suspension system. Expect plenty of its body panels to be constructed from lightweight carbon fiber as well. Standard on the Trion Nemesis will be four-wheel drive and an eight-speed transmission. Helping the 2,000-hp supercar come to a stop from its mind-numbing acceleration are carbon-ceramic disc brakes, six-piston calipers in the front and four-piston calipers in the rear.

    The first prototype models will be built by California-based coachbuilder N2A motors in February 2015 and the Nemesis is expected to be limited to just 50 units. Each vehicle will cost roughly $1 million.
  23. I bet they never sell a single one.
