The Nemesis was created by an ‘A-team’ of motorsport engineers – guys who between them have worked with companies like McLaren, Williams and Lotus, and who have built F1 and Le Mans racing cars. The Nemesis is 'British Engineering’.
Performance was at the heart of the design brief, it had to be incredibly fast, not just in a straight line but round bends too. No mean feat when you add 200 kilos of batteries to a car designed for a petrol engine. Check out the stats below.
