Percy “Master P” Miller and his son Romeo are partnering with designer Richard Patterson to launch a new automotive brand called Trion SuperCars. Patterson, a former Tesla designer, has already created the Nemesis RR, and is the founder of the first Black-owned supercar manufacturer in the U.S.
“Richard Patterson is a genius,” Miller said in a statement. “He has created the blueprint for the next era of supercars. It’s time for us to change the narrative for our culture by offering economic empowerment with this partnership. This is history. We have come a long way to be a part of innovative technology, manufacturing and producing our own automobiles.”
Trion SuperCars is being engineered by Patterson, who served as the developer of the Tesla Model S design from scratch. He is also the designer of the landing gear on the Boeing 777 and the folding seat system in the Dodge minivan.
The new auto company is another addition to Miller’s long list of businesses including his record label, his apparel lines, his cereal brand, as well as his professional wrestling league. Miller’s son, Romeo, and business partner James Lindsay are also joining the company that promises to produce high-end, luxury sports cars.
