It's Happened Again.
*get low plays in background*
Ah yes, the Arpione Nemesis. A fine idea for a car, doomed by factory strikes, oil crises and reliability issues.
The original Phase I model debuted in 1974. Marketed as "Il muscolo d'Italia," it was a four-seater sport sedan with a 3-liter inline 6 producing around 120 HP. Despite being rear-wheel drive, it handled surprisingly nicely, even at speed. However, due to labor disputes, no more than 15 were produced until 1976, when full production officially began. By the time it was finally rolling off the line, it was already obsolete - its carbureted engine could only manage 14 MPG, not good enough for the average 1970's consumer.
Work quickly began on the updated Phase II model. Minor aesthetic changes were made - the headlamps got aerodynamic covers, the mirrors were moved to the fenders, the hood scoop was replaced with a hood vent, some excess trim was removed, and the exhaust pipes moved to the center of the rear bumper. Under the hood, the triple Weber carburetors were replaced with a mechanical fuel-injection system, adding 10 more horsepower and bringing MPG up from 14 to 17. It hit Italian dealerships in late 1978, but took until 1979 to reach the US. The P2 Nemesis sold moderately well at first, but the OPEC oil embargo (and the Nemesis' improved, but still abysmal, 17 MPG) quickly smothered any sales momentum it may have had.
Finally, the Phase III was unveiled in 1982. It featured updated styling and a two-tone paint job, plus an all-new DOHC I6 producing nearly 170 HP and pushing it from 0 to 60 in under 7.5 seconds. However, it was a compromised car: for one thing, it was not built to handle the kind of power the new engine could produce, so it had a nasty oversteer habit. Its efficiency was greatly improved (22 MPG), thanks to a computerized electronic fuel-injection system...
Spoiler: The end of the story
...which generally crapped out at around 8,000 miles. The EFI system was plagued with corroding solder joints, exploding capacitors and cracked circuit boards, and the MOS 6502 that controlled it all was not adequately cooled. The cars were recalled, but the damage had been done - in 1985, Arpione pulled out of the North American market, and in 1987, after years of stagnation, they filed for bankruptcy. The manufacturer's assets were purchased by Voiture Topaz, a French firm known for its bland and unreliable offerings.
When they went bankrupt, they were actually in the early stages of developing a completely-redesigned Nemesis P4, but hadn't yet reached a point where a complete prototype would be possible. Topaz continued the project with their own engineers, ultimately resulting in the 1990 Topaz 3000SC (coming soon!).
The Arpione name was reintroduced in 1990, but none of their new models were nearly as interesting as the Nemesis.
Does it still look suspiciously like an Austin Princess, as the earliest prototypes did? Should I bother releasing it? You tell me.
