Trion Nemesis is in the futuristic hardcore supercar business

Trion, and by association, the Trion Nemesis are both new names in the supercar game. And as things stand, they might as well be here for the long haul.

Let’s go back a bit, Hootenanny… that’s a great word, and I’m going to try to sneak it into conversations all week. That, and bamboozled, because it’s cool.
