The TRION NEMESIS RR (known as simply TRION NEMESIS in-game) is a hypercar made and produced by Southern California-based boutique supercar maker TRION SuperCars.
The TRION NEMESIS was revealed in 2014 by California-based outfit TRION SuperCars. The company is described as making an "advanced ultra-luxury, high-performance line of vehicles designed around the driver". Aesthetically, the NEMESIS has an aggressive aerodynamic shape that makes the car resemble the McLaren P1, even more so on the wide-arched style rear end. Whereas the P1 has butterfly doors, the NEMESIS has suicide-scissor doors.
Internally, the TRION NEMESIS contains a digital dashboard and Internet connectivity, as well as a "Predator Mode" switch (the counterpart of the P1's "Street/Race/Track Mode" switch), allowing the car to change its height, suspension, exhaust noise, and rev limit, as well as its interior lighting. The car has a cockpit suitable for tall drivers up to 6'4" (193 cm).
The car uses an eight-speed sequential automatic transmission and is all-wheel-drive.
The TRION NEMESIS features a 9.0L (9,045 cc) twin-turbocharged V8 engine that produces 2000 hp (1491 kW). With that much power (along with an unspecified but extreme amount of torque), it is expected to do 0-60 mph in less than 2.8 seconds and reach a blistering top speed of over 270 mph (434 km/h), aimed squarely at the likes of the Koenigsegg One:1, Hennessey Venom GT, and Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport, the former of which currently holds the record for the fastest production car, at 273 mph (440 km/h).
The car was shown in person at the 2016 Silicon Valley Auto Show. Production is expected to begin by late 2016 with the first production models hitting the streets in 2017.
The TRION NEMESIS was added to the game during the Santa's Gift Update.
Overall, the TRION NEMESIS is not optimal for Multiplayer at any configuration aside from MAX+PRO (or close to that). Inheriting its upgrade rank distribution of 2/55/2/41 from the various McLaren vehicles in the game, the TRION NEMESIS is also made useless for Multiplayer at a low-ranked configuration by its high starting rank and low Tuning Kit boost. However, if used at MAX+PRO, the TRION NEMESIS is very viable for Multiplayer.
The TRION NEMESIS has a speed modifier of 91.60%.
The TRION NEMESIS is the fourth/fifth-best vehicle in Class S; it is also one of the top ten best vehicles in the entire game. The NEMESIS has good performance in all aspects and extremely good acceleration. Compared to its competition, the NEMESIS is more acceleration-biased rather than speed-biased.
The NEMESIS, while overally inferior to the Aston Martin Vulcan, Arrinera Hussarya GT and McLaren MP4-31, is still a very strong competitor in Class S due to its extremely quick acceleration. The NEMESIS (like other top cars in Class S) is overpowered by the Devel Sixteen Prototype on (the few) long and simple maps like Tokyo. Within Class S, the NEMESIS ties with the Mosler Super GT and Ferrari Enzo Ferrari as the 12th-fastest vehicle; in the scope of all Asphalt 8 vehicles, it places 18th in terms of speed.
The NEMESIS is also rivalled by the Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage, Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition, Icona Vulcano V12 Hybrid, Lamborghini Aventador SV, Porsche 918 Spyder with Weissach Package, and possibly the Chevrolet 2016 Camaro SS on long and simple maps, as these vehicles have slower accelerating and/or worse handling but higher top speed. The NEMESIS is best used on short/technical maps, where it can have a stronger chance of defeating these vehicles.
The NEMESIS is rivalled by the McLaren Mercedes MP4-25 on short maps; the MP4-25 accelerates slightly faster than the NEMESIS but it has a slightly slower top speed and it skids easily.
Compared to the Vulcan, the NEMESIS has significantly superior acceleration, similar handling/drifting, slightly inferior nitro efficiency (6/10/14 vs 6/12/16), and significantly inferior speed.
The TRION NEMESIS used to be the best vehicle in Class S (and the entire game). While notorious for being the best Credits-purchasable vehicle in the game for two years (not necessarily the fastest, but the most balanced), the NEMESIS is still extremely expensive to purchase and upgrade for Credits. Notably, the NEMESIS requires 60 Forced-Induction V8 Engines to be upgraded to the MAX+PRO level, making it somewhat worthless for newer players (because the Hussarya GT and MP4-31 are both easily available from seasonal Championship Events which provide some engines; the Vulcan is more expensive than the NEMESIS, though).
However, if the player owns the NEMESIS at the MAX+PRO level, and somehow doesn't already own the Vulcan or other top-tier cars after several years of play-time, then it is still an extremely useful vehicle. The NEMESIS still serves excellently in most Class S Time-Limited Events despite its slight inferiority to the Vulcan, Hussarya GT and MP4-31; it can achieve a top 200 position if an extremely good run is made.
Usage (Multiplayer) Edit
In Multiplayer, the NEMESIS is actually more useful than in TLEs (at MAX+PRO). Due to its extremely quick acceleration, the NEMESIS isn't completely overthrown by the Vulcan, Hussarya GT, MP4-25, MP4-31, Corvette GS, and Hommage. The NEMESIS can give a good fight on short maps against all of these vehicles; the biggest threat on short maps is probably the MP4-25 (which performs very similarly to the NEMESIS). On longer maps, the NEMESIS is unable to compete with these vehicles (assuming players of similar skill levels are driving), unless another racer gets knocked down or makes any major mistake in the lap.
Usage (Other) Edit
The TRION NEMESIS also counts to the collection "Off The Charts", which awards 5 Class S upgrades, useful for saving the player's upgrading costs (especially the Mosler Super GT, which has 4 upgrades that can only be bought with tokens) when upgrading better Class S vehicles. This collection is, however, very difficult to complete, as obtaining all the vehicles in the collection takes 10,750,000 and 28,000.
The TRION NEMESIS is the most expensive Credits-purchasable vehicle in the game, with a buying price of 4,000,000, a MAX Upgrades price of 3,495,350, and a Pro Kits price of 1,888,875, all for a total of 9,384,225; including the Credits-purchasable Decals, this total is increased to 9,856,725. The NEMESIS's Pro Kits require 25 of each Class S Parts card, 60 Forced-Induction V8 cards, 28 Mid-Tech cards, and 32 Advanced Tech cards.
