American-made 270 mph+ Nemesis supercar to pack 2,000 hp

•, By C.C. Weiss
 Hot on the heels of Hennessey's 270.49-mph (435.31 km/h) speed record and Koenigsegg's 1-megawatt One:1, we have an all-new contender from a young American start-up. Trion Supercars' Nemesis is an angry, 2,000-hp beast that has its eyes on the world record territory north of 270 mph (435 km/h).

In 2012, Rich Patterson fulfilled his lifelong dream, leveraging nearly three decades in the automotive industry to found his own company, California-based Trion Supercars. Patterson's experience in cars began at the tender age of 15 when he won a contest for an apprenticeship at General Motors Fisher Body Group. He went on to build a career in the industry, working for notable names like Chrysler, Tesla and Fisker, with a focus on interior design.

Patterson's experience in interior design and space solutions shines through in the proposed design of the Nemesis supercar. The car looks as low and compact as any supercar out there, but Trion plans to make a car that can accommodate a 6-foot 4-in (2-m) driver comfortably, while carrying golf clubs or luggage in the trunk. It also says the cabin will capitalize on reduced volumes to increase spaciousness. An internet-connected infotainment display will connect the driver and the car to the wider world.
