A California firm named Trion Supercars believes that it can win some of that uber-rich market with a new $1 million sports car built in the US reports Autoblog. The car is called the Nemesis and at this point, it's only a concept. The manufacturer says that it will come with a 2000hp V8 engine.
To reach that output the car will have twin turbos and the power will go to the ground via an 8-speed sequential transmission. The car will be small and compact like most sports cars, but will fit a driver up to 6'4" in height.
The vehicle will use lots of carbon fiber in its construction to remain lightweight. Trion says that the car will be able to reach 60mph in 2.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 270mph.
Trion says, "The Nemesis cabin offers a unique blend of cutting-edge technology with reduced volumes to optimize the space. Digital flat panel controls provide access to the latest internet crazes while masking the core function of vehicle programming. The displays provide access to program the Nemesis powertrain as well as a few predefined operating options. The "Predator Mode" will modify interior illumination, height, suspension, exhaust and rev limits."
