that's brilliant, and the price isn't too bad either ;-)

Where in the Philippines can one use that power, or the 186mph it is alleged to do?

Outside of Manila for a ways, is the only area I can think of.

I have a suspicion it's going to be as reliable as a 1980s Ferrari too.

i dont see that motor doing that speed without some serious tweeking and i bet like most stuff once you drive it off its YOURS ...  Nice direction for sure and great effort i would buy one after a few years of seeing the quality of the unit

It would really help to include a picture, some specifications and perhaps a video (so one does not have to go to some URL Link to learn what the hell all the fuss is about).

 

"There are certain countries on the globe that ooze supercardom. One of them just won the World Cup in fact, and you can delegate in the comments below as to what the others are.
A country that certainly doesn’t come to mind is the Philippines, though that could change soon. This is the Aurelio – "

 

 

The Aurelio’s profile nips at the handsome contours of the Ferrari 458 Italia, the doors have an air of McLaren P1, and the rear end picks up some cues from the Lamborghini Aventador. However, those certainly aren’t bad jumping-off points, are they?

Specific details are a bit lacking on the Aurelio, but here’s what we can gather. The body is composed of fiberglass-reinforced-plastic with what looks like a few carbon fiber bits and bobs scattered throughout inside. Underneath the sleek body lies a tubular space frame chassis affixed with a turbocharged Mitsubishi 4G63 four-cylinder that allegedly boasts 457hp per ton, capable of shooting the Aurelio up to a top speed of 186mph.

According to The Manila Times, about 80 percent of the car’s components were sourced from within the Philippines, with the only exceptions being the wheels, brakes, engine, transmission, and a few suspension components. Talk about grassroots engineering.

All in all, it’s an impressive design, especially considering that the four guys who built it had to borrow money from relatives and pawn off some of their own possessions just to finish the first supercar prototypes. The company can produce about six to 10 units a year with their current manpower, which are pegged to go for about 1.6 million Philippine pesos or the equivalent of $37,000 a pop. Let’s hope these guys succeed.

It's a good looking car from afar, but seems like there's basically a 'bucket' that the driver and passenger sit in, then there's a lot of empty space with some embellishments to make it look like a supercar. Seems to be a LOT of empty space (holes) for no reason.

 

Definitely not a practical car for the roads in the Philippines, but then again, no supercar belongs on the roads in the Philippines. A truck with 2 meter fording abilities would be best about now.

I can imagine trying to drive that thing onto the barge from Negros to Cebu. How about climbing up the curb to park? Then if my wife can get her Pajero stuck in a rice patty, what would happen to this thing?  Not exactly the next "peoples car".

Holes do have a reason: direct air to where it needs to be
