An article from Autoblog on March 31 tells us there’s a new hypercar in the works. Trion Supercars is an Irvine, Calif., based manufacturer with a company philosophy aimed at creating the ultimate driving experience. They plan to launch their 2,000 hp Nemesis, claiming it will be one of the world’s fastest cars once it is produced. It will have a twin-turbo V8 mated to an 8-speed sequential ‘box. It should potentially reach 60 mph in 2.8 seconds and have a top speed of over 270 mph.

Every so often, someone comes along with an idea for a hyper-fast, hyper-exclusive and hyper-expensive supercar. In the industry, they’re referred to as “Boutique carmakers.” Some manage to make it big, such as Pagani and Koenigsegg, but it’s a definitely long and difficult road to take.
Trion plans to create the Nemesis’ body from a gratuitous use of carbon fiber. It will be fitted with something called ‘Predator Mode’ that changes the car’s suspension tuning, exhaust, rev limits, ride height and even interior lighting – all in the name of increased aggression. Later this year, Trion has promised a prototype, and sales are projected to begin next year at about $1 million each.
Hopefully, the Trion Nemesis will descend from the world of renderings and become a reality, and we can stop referring to it in the future-tense.
