Trion Nemesis is a 2,000hp American supercar. Yes, 2,000!

A Californian company is trying to take the supercar world by storm. It has announced the Trion Nemesis, a 2,000hp monster that promises to run circles around its competitors when it comes to all out speed and power.

The Trion Nemesis will have a 2,000hp twin-turbocharged V8 mated to an 8-speed sequential gearbox. This, according to the manufacturer, gives the Nemesis a 0 to 60mph time of 2.8 seconds and a top speed of more than 270mph. A carbon fibre body and chassis with ‘Incolel’ superalloy elements keeps the weight down.

If the Nemesis is as fast as Trion says, it will be in a league with the Hennessey Venom GT, which is faster than the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport (unofficially, at least) and the Koenigsegg Agera One: 1, which is suitably endowed in the engine power department.

A few design tweaks have been implemented to improve everyday drivability including a boot that is said to hold a set of golf clubs or luggage. Meanwhile the ride quality can be adjusted using active aero-dynamics in case you feel like taking it a bit slower.

Arguably the standout feature is the “Predator Mode”, which when initiated adjusts the interior illumination, height, suspension, exhaust and rev limits. There are also digital flat panel displays to let you watch online content and a system that allows you to customise the powertrain.

Trion SuperCars (TSC for short) was setup by Rich Patterson in 2012. He has previously worked at a number of car manufacturers over his 29-year career in the automotive industry, including a stint at Chrysler, Tesla and Fisker. The manufacturer said it ‘intends to challenge European dominance of the prestigious exotic supercar category’.

The Trion Nemesis will go on sale in 2015 for somewhere around US$1 million. How closely it will mimic the alleged specs remains to be seen.
