Trion Nemesis Supercar Hopes to Bring 2,000HP to Market in 2016
If there’s one credence that we as Americans hold dear, it's that bigger is better. Don’t agree? Just look at our hypercars. In order to tackle such foreign exotica as the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport or Koenigsegg One:1, America has fashioned the likes of the 1,300-horsepower SSC Ultimate Aero, John Hennessey’s 1,200-horsepower Venom GT, and soon the ‘ole US of A will yield this – the 2,000-horsepower Trion Nemesis. At least, we might. PHOTOS: Gaze in awe at the $2 million 2014 Koenigsegg Agera One:1
According to a report by the UK’s Autocar, the Californian start-up Trion SuperCars will begin production of its monstrous Nemesis in January 2016 with, prototype versions expected as early as February 2015. Though monstrous might not do the Nemesis justice.
These figures are simply astounding. The Nemesis will feature a twin-turbocharged, 9.0-liter V8 engine, reportedly capable of rocking the hypercar past 60 mph in under 2.8 seconds and well north of 270 mph at the top end. Most of that unimaginable speed comes thanks to its 2,000hp output, but the Nemesis’ lightweight carbon fiber monocoque chassis certainly shouldn’t slow it down any.

Power goes to the ground via an all-wheel drive system and eight-speed sequential gearbox in the high-flying Nemesis RR (seen above). Trion also plans to debut different versions as well, including a hybrid Nemesis ER, all-electric Nemesis E, and detuned 1,400hp Nemesis GT.
Interestingly, Trion claims the Nemesis hardtop will be able to swallow drivers up to seven-feet-tall, which is handy … if you’re seven feet tall or have big hair. The price for this hyped-up hypercar? A mountainous $1 million, but then again only 50 will be built, so it might be a nice investment.

No word yet on how many cup holders it will have, but we’re guessing some extreme number…like over 9,000.
