Ecotricity founder Dale Vince wanted a supercar, but not just one that you can pick up at a car dealership. So, he built Nemesis, which is basically a Lotus Exige “fitted [with] 96 lithium-ion polymer cells, a completely new transmission and two motors developing 330bhp.” Video after the break.

It has so far reached a top speed of 135mph but Ecotricity says it should be capable of 170mph. Nemesis can run for between 100-150 miles between charges and can be charged from empty in under two hours from its fast charger or eight to nine hours from a regular mains supply.
