Trion Nemesis Set To Be Fastest Car In The World

Once every few months, a fledgling car company with some big money backers rolls out some extraordinary claims about a supercar they're going to build. The vehicle in question usually sports a stunning body that's all curves and aggression, paired with a name formed of equally angry words. There's an announcement party, filled with beautiful women and grey-haired millionaires, and a prototype chassis of the dream car. When no one makes any orders, the money inevitably dries up and the project never leaves the garage. 

We're keeping everything crossed that the 2016 Trion Nemesis RR doesn't meet this similar fate. Yes, it's name is absurd, and yes, the body does look like a McLaren P1 on steroids. But it's the numbers that make this supercar pretender worthy of some hype. 

 

Trion Nemesis

The racing model of a series of sportscars set to be crafted by the new California-based manufacturer, the RR will house a 9.0 litre V8 twin turbo, with 2,000 horsepower propelling its agile frame from 0-62mph in 2.8 seconds. Which is pretty slippy. What's even more staggering is the projected top speed of 280mph - a full 10mph quicker than the current record currently being disputed by the Hennessey Venom GT and Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. 

Every other detail of the Nemesis RR is similarly barmy. A digital flat panel control will "provide access to the latest internet crazes while masking the core function of vehicle programming", while the "active aero-dynamics that are programmable to suit the drivers mood". It also claims to be practical, with a boot designed to fit a set of golf clubs. Which is useful. 

A production of 50 cars is set to arrive in 2016, costing somewhere north of £620,000. You can place your order over on the Trion site - but we all know you're not going to.
