Trion – a start-up American supercar firm – plans to develop V8-powered Nemesis model with 1973bhp and 270mph-plus top speed

The Trion Nemesis, a hypercar with over 1973bhp, will go into production in 2016. Powered by a twin-turbocharged V8 engine with an unknown capacity, the Nemesis is claimed to have a top speed of over 270mph, and is able to hit 60mph in 2.8 seconds.

Such speeds would allow the Nemesis to beat rivals including the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse and the Koenigsegg One:1, the latter of which has 1322bhp available and a claimed top speed of 273mph.

Trion Supercars is described as making an "advanced ultra-luxury, high-performance line of vehicles designed around the driver".

The Nemesis features an aerodynamic shape which its makers describe as being "flawless from the front growl to the captivating tail configuration". At the rear, the Nemesis shows the same wide-arched style as the McLaren P1.

Inside, the Nemesis features a digital dashboard and internet connectivity. The car also has a 'Predator Mode', which modifies its height, suspension settings, exhaust noise and rev limit as well as its interior lighting.

The American-based startup company says it is currently taking orders for the Nemesis, with examples of the base GT car selling for $1.2 million. Limited-edition RR Black Ops and RR versions of the Nemesis retail for $1.98 million and $1.6 million respectively.

In August 2014, the firm also announced it would be expanding the line-up of Nemesis vehicles to include Grand Touring, hybrid and fully electric models. The Nemesis ER will be powered by dual electric motors coupled to a unspecified four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, and offers a claimed range of 720 miles.

The fully electric Nemesis E, meanwhile, will come with all-wheel drive, regenerative braking and electric drive which equates to around 986bhp.

Similar start-up operations are providing increased competition in the hypercar market. The Keating Bolt was in 2013 with mention of a 340mph top speed, while last year Arash unveiled its AF8, although that car was reputed to reach a much more likely 200mph.

Our Verdict

Bugatti Veyron
The world doesn't need a car like the Bugatti Veyron, but the fact it exists at all is reason for celebration

The Bugatti Veyron redefines what's possible in a road car, but does it justify its eye-watering price?

'Ere we go again, more fanciful nonsense.

companies trying to out do hypercars/supercars from established European manufacturers. Each new challenger that comes along lacks the sophistication of design and engineering to my mind and it appears it's sole purpose is to snatch the bragging rights with headline figures. How often will that 2000BHP V8 need rebuilding?
I'm not sure I'd plonk my hard earned on a car that has a 'Predator' mode, seems more akin to the Batmobile.

"Why is http://www.nanoflowcell.com not getting more media attention? It could be the future... Now!"

I wonder what the car will look like when it actually exists?

I sense your going to need it if they are expecting to make a 2000bhp car and sell it for £600,000 for a profit.

Atleast the Hennessey Venom was created by a renown tuning company who make bonkers power figures out of anything for a living.

Almost 2000 Bhp. Me thinks reliability will be a problem!!!

Doubt it will see production but another pointless car.

The americans are getting better at comedy! this was similar some years ago to the MGXpower 1000bhp if you fit a nitrous kit. The current climate is to name exotic materials then that automatically gives you bragging rights to the next 2000bhp car.

1 MW is 1360 metric horsepower, that's 1341 imperial horsepower.
