American supercar producer Trion SuperCars has released additional information and new pictures for its first model – the Nemesis.
Production of the vehicle is scheduled to start in January 2016, while first prototypes will be built in February 2015. The Nemesis uses a carbon fiber monocoque and a pushrod-based suspension system. Many of the body details are also made from the same lightweight material and the company has also put active aerodynamics.
As reported before, the power is provided by a 9.0-liter V8 twin-turbo engine with around 2,000 bhp (1,491 kW). With 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration in just 2.8 seconds and maximum speed of more than 450 km/h (280 mph), on paper the Nemesis should be faster than the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse and the Koenigsegg One:1.
The V8 unit is mated to an eight-speed sequential manual transmission and four-wheel drive. The standard equipment also includes carbon-ceramic disc brakes with six-piston front calipers and four-piston rear calipers.
Inside the cabin, there is a fully digital dashboard with internet connectivity. The vehicle also has a Predator Mode that provides higher throttle responsiveness and modifies the suspension settings, the exhaust noise and the rev limit.
The American-based startup company says a run of 50 examples is planned with prices starting at around 786,000 EUR (620,000 GBP). Triton explains it “intends to challenge European dominance of the prestigious exotic supercar category”.
