Superlite Nemesis

The Superlite Nemesis is an ideal track-day car for driving schools, individuals and driving clubs.

Powered by the powerful and inexpensive VW/Audi 1.8 or 2.0 turbocharged engines, the car has an incredible power-to-weight ratio that, like all Superlite cars, combines with advanced suspension design for great handling, and fast track speed.

In fact, the suspension on the Nemesis was designed from the ground up with maintenance in mind, so each corner has identical components (they are just flipped to mount on the other side). This simple design makes it less expensive to repair a damaged car, as only one set of part numbers needs to be stocked.

But designing for performance and maintenance is not enough. The Nemesis holds an International Design award from the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.

This prestigious award was also shared with the new Aston Martin One-77 Sports car, and the Mercedes Benz SLR Stirling Moss edition. These are the world’s most prestigious global awards for new product design.

The award-winning Nemesis is more than just great design and performance. Safety was a prime consideration in the design and manufacture of the car. Because of the exoskeletal design, the chassis features superior front, side & rear protection. The chassis also features integrated a large, tall roll hoop with rear stay, at a height that even NBA stars won’t exceed, making ideal for driving schools that see a very wide range of drivers. Other safety features include collapsible steering column, centralized fuel tank with optional fuel cell, over-sized brakes & a cooling system that is behind the driver, so burns from coolant leaks- even in a crash- are a thing of the past.

Quick to build, the Nemesis is designed and supplied with virtually all the parts required to complete the vehicle. Just add engine package, battery, tires and paint!
