The Romulus Predator was an American built supercar. The design of the vehicle was courteous of four mechanical-design software vendors, Hewlett-Packard, and Mark Gerisch. Gerisch was president and chief executive officer of M&L Auto Specialists, Inc. The Company specialized in creating auto reproductions, a business it had known for nearly two decades. The Company had built their designs using clay and steel models but later switched to mechanical computer-aided design (MCAD). Hewlett-Packard had been instrumental in aiding in the transition. The use of MCAD had greatly increased the production time for creating the Predator prototype. The Predator supercar was designed and built in less than four months. It was displayed at the AutoFact Motor Show in Detroit, Michigan in November of 1997.
