US-based Trion SuperCars has scheduled a start-date for production of its ‘world-beating’ Nemesis model in January 2016.
With a claimed 1492kW (2000 BHP) on tap, the Nemesis will have the world’s best hypercars in its sights with a predicted 0-100km/h time of 2.8 seconds and a top speed beyond 432km/h (270 MPH).
Also in the pipeline with a similar production schedule is Bugatti’s Veyron replacement - rumoured to be called “Chiron” - with a predicted 0-100km/h as low as 2.3 seconds.
A power output for the Chiron of over 1100kW has been thrown around for some time, as has a predicted top speed of 460km/h.
Also with a top speed of 460km/h in its sights is the Hennessey Venom F5 from the US, which is targeting a power output of 1044kW and a top speed of 290 MPH (464km/h).
But that 2000 horsepower figure from its twin-turbocharged 9.0 litre V8 could be enough to get the Nemesis over the line - assuming it can achieve this goal.
The Nemesis also gets a carbon-fibre monocoque and carbon-fibre everything else, along with all-wheel-drive, pushrod-actuated suspension and active aerodynamics.
Power will reach the road through an eight-speed sequential manual, and stopping will be dealt with through carbon-ceramic brakes sporting six-piston callipers on the front and four-piston at the rear.
Trion SuperCars plans to build 50 examples of the Nemesis, each priced around the US$1 million mark (AU$1.14 million).
