Aerodynamics can help you corner at much higher speed due to downforce, chassis tuning reduces body roll, but at the end of the day power is indeed power. The fact of the matter is that if you want to travel at silly speeds, say 250MPH, the amount of power required is huge to overcome wind resistance and other factors. Take the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport for example… It needs 1,200BHP to travel at 276MPH. Trion are a new American manufacturer who have set their sights high. The Trion Nemesis is to bring 2,000BHP to the party.
Set to arrive at the beginning of 2016, the Trion Nemesis not only has a menacing name, but also a rather angry appearance. A low tapered nose leads onto a sort stout body. It is muscular, but flowing lines give it a sense of civilisation. Power is set to come from a 9.0 litre V8 engine producing 2,000BHP. 0-62MPH is projected to be completed in just 2.8 seconds and it is claimed a top speed of over 270MPH will be possible. A carbon fibre monocoque sits beneath the Nemesis’ body. “Predator Mode” adjusts the cars ride hight suspension and rev limiter.
50 cars is the target each to cost around £620,000. Whilst American start-ups have seen success, Hennessey being a good example for the modern-day, we shall remain sceptical about this cars claims until it proves its worth.
