Extreme off-road racer will come in two power configurations - a 5.0 liter supercharged V8 with 600 bhp (447 kW) and a 3.0 liter TDV6 with 291 bhp (217 kW).
The Bowler Nemesis EXR prototype is a road-going version of the Nemesis desert rally raid vehicle (pictured), and will be put through its paces at the Race Car Live! Event at Brands Hatch in the UK next weekend (Saturday 20 and Sunday the 21 of November).
Based on a heavily modified Range Rover Sport, the EXR comes in two disparate power configurations - the first is a 5.0 liter supercharged V8 with 600 bhp (447 kW), the second a 3.0 liter TDV6 with 291 bhp (217 kW). Both come with a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
The lightweight makings of the EXR include a body and chassis spaceframe made of composite material. Underpinning the racing SUV is a double-wishbone independent suspension and front and rear roll bars.
The Nemesis was designed as a desert racer and previous iterations, using 4.0, 4.2 and 4.4 liter V8s, have competed in the World Off Road Rally and the Dakar Rally circuits. However, the EXR represents the company's first street-legal car intended to embarrass the BMW X6 M, Porsche Cayenne Turbo and Mercedes ML 63 AMG on and off the road.
