The Trion Nemesis RR (stylized as TRION NEMESIS in Asphalt 8 and 9) 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 Agera RS, Bugatti Chiron, and Hennessey Venom F5, the former of which currently remains the world's fastest production car with a top speed of 278 mph (447 km/h).
The car was shown in person at the 2016 Silicon Valley Auto Show. Production was expected to begin by late 2016 with the first production models hitting the streets in 2017, but as of 2018, the car is still not in production.
The Trion Nemesis has been available since the game's soft launch, and appears as a mid-rank Class S car with the following rank statistics:
- Starting rank: 3,232 ( 60)
- rank: 3,378
- rank: 3,547 ( 13)
- rank: 3,729 ( 16)
- rank: 3,917 ( 25)
- rank: 4,138 ( 38)
- rank: 4,344 ( 48)
At its stock rank, the Trion Nemesis has a top speed rating of 434, above average acceleration rating (73.90), poor handling rating (39.45) with a relatively tight drift radius, and poor nitro efficiency rating (35.92). Despite already having a high top speed even at stock, the Nemesis often struggles to reach that speed due to its stiff steering and short nitro duration preventing it from keeping its speed up while driving on rough surfaces and around most corners. The Nemesis's suspension is soft enough that it can perform 360 "floaties" when entering certain corners, allowing it to maintain much of its speed despite its low handling rating.
Upgrades to the Trion Nemesis give the greatest improvements to its nitro efficiency, followed by handling, then acceleration, with the least improvements to its top speed. These upgrades slightly reduce the amount of speed the Nemesis loses while cornering, drifting, or driving on rough surfaces, while also increasing its acceleration to more competitive levels.
Because the Trion Nemesis has an extremely high top speed rating for Class S as well as good acceleration (especially when upgraded), it is capable of matching many other higher-ranked cars with more balanced performance characteristics, as long as its deficiencies in handling and nitro efficiency are managed. Even without the use of nitro, the Nemesis's raw top speed alone makes it one of the fastest cars in a straight line. The Nemesis's nitro is more suited for bursts of acceleration due to its short duration, even with extensive upgrades.
The Trion Nemesis performs best on tracks with long straights, such as Himalayas and Cairo, where it can accelerate to and maintain its top speed for extended periods. It tends to underperform on technical tracks, such as The Caribbean and Auckland, due to it losing speed around even slight bends, although its tight drift radius and soft suspension allows it to take short, sharp corners without decelerating too much.
Blueprints for the Trion Nemesis, along with epic import parts, are available by opening card packs obtainable only from its weekly Exclusive Event, held from Saturday to Sunday. Basic participation in the event's current format, which rewards up to 2 guaranteed blueprints and Trion Nemesis card packs that provide Nemesis blueprints but no epic import parts, requires the Ferrari FXX K to be unlocked. Additional Trion Nemesis packs can be obtained only if the Lamborghini Egoista is unlocked, while Trion Nemesis+ packs, which can contain both blueprints and epic import parts, are obtainable only if the Zenvo TS1 GT 10th Anniversary Edition is unlocked.
The TRION NEMESIS was added in the Santa's Gift Update as a high-end Class S car with the following rank statistics:
- Starting rank: 1636
- MAX rank: 1737 (+101)
- MAX+PRO rank: 1805 (+68)
- Tuning Kit bonus: +25
- Stock to MAX+PRO rank difference: 265
- Upgrade rank percentages: 2/55/2/41
- Speed Modifier: 91.60%
- This was removed in the 2019 Holiday Update.
- Nitro Efficiency: 6/11.5/16
As of Showdown Update, the NEMESIS is a mid Class S car with the following statistics:
- Starting rank: 1717
- MAX rank: 1774
- MAX+PRO rank: 1821
- Tuning Kit bonus: +54
- Stock to MAX+PRO rank difference: +104
As of the 2021 Holiday Update, the NEMESIS is a high Class S car with the following statistics:
- Starting rank: 1717
- MAX rank: 1793
- MAX+PRO rank: 1860
- Tuning Kit bonus: +55
The TRION rivals the McLaren 720S, Porsche Carrera GT, Aston Martin Vulcan, Arrinera Hussarya GT, McLaren MP4-31, Lamborghini Aventador SV, Rezvani Beast Alpha, and the Kawasaki Ninja H2R. The Devel Sixteen Prototype and Porsche 918 Spyder with Weissach Package are the next-best vehicles in Class S after the NEMESIS. Within the entire game, the NEMESIS is roughly the eleventh best vehicle. The NEMESIS has good performance in all aspects and extremely good acceleration. Compared to its competition, the NEMESIS is an acceleration-biased car with a total speed of 305.3 mph/491.5 km/h.
This is the official review of the TRION NEMESIS on the Asphalt YouTube channel, made by TheHawtDawg1 and published on February 11, 2016:
Note: Tests were performed with a MAX NEMESIS
Time to reach end of Tokyo straight: 7.062s
Perfect nitro duration: 8.976s
Triple nitro duration: N/A
French Guiana lap time: 55.077s
Venice lap time: 1.10.851s
Final verdict: N/A
During its release, the TRION NEMESIS was considered 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 worthless for newer players.
With the inclusion of the Apollo IE and X2, the TRION NEMESIS was rendered a collector's item, until the Fifth Anniversary Update.
The NEMESIS is similarly a poor choice in multiplayer due to its low top speed. While the quick acceleration can compete against the Vulcan, Hussarya GT, McLaren Mercedes MP4-25, MP4-31, Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, and BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage, it will struggle against high Class S cars.
However, with the Heatwave Season on August 30, 2018, that rebalanced matchmaking by top speed instead of performance rating, the NEMESIS is usable again with its rapid acceleration and can compete against the Rezvani Beast X and Ford GT.
The TRION NEMESIS counts to the Off the Charts collection, which awards a total of 2 Double Credits and 5 Class S upgrades when both versions are completed. This collection is, however, very difficult to complete, as obtaining all the vehicles in the collection takes 10,750,000 and 28,000.
