Meet Philippines First Supercar- The Aurelio Automobile

When you think of supercars, you rightfully think of Italy. Beyond Italy, you’ll find Koenigsegg in Sweden, Porsche and Mercedes-Benz in Germany as well as many British marques like Aston Martin venturing into this heavily contested segment of the market. One place you definitely wouldn’t think of making their own supercars is Philippines but they’ve created just that!

Meet Philippines First Supercar- The Aurelio Automobile

The company behind the car, formerly known as Factor Aurelio and now simply Aurelio after internal disagreements, the design of the car is certainly unique. Available either with a Honda B16A V-TEC engine or a Mitsubishi 4G63T turbocharged 2.0-litre engine, the Aurelio ‘supercar’ could prove quite fast.

Unsurprisingly, no performance or power figures have been announced but the car is reportedly made from fibreglass reinforced plastic as well as select carbon fibre components.

Leave your thoughts on the car below. One thing we can pretty much guarantee though is that the Aurelio will never catch on and be a success.

Special thanks to Michael Xerxes for sharing the photos with us.

    • Crappy engines..? LoL’z the mitsubishi 4g63t engine and honda b16 engines are legends in thier own right, they’ve been proved to be capable of making big hp figures.!! Not to mention that this car is made of fiberglass/plastic and carbon fiber.!! The size and weight of this car with these engines you have a very capable car, if they tuned the chassis and suspension correctly this car would put to shame a lot of cars on the road. Btw these engines have so much support from aftermarket performance companies and is so tuner friendly some parts swapping and adding and these guys would be making unreal power.

  1. it is just a kit car. Real supercars have their own company-made engines. What makes a car super is the performance of the engine and not the body itself. (Not to mention the design is too close to a Ferrari.)

  2. Lol. A 4 banger supercar???? Its more like a kit car to me. Its 2014 so put at least a reliable 400HP engine then maybe you can call it a super car… Looks sexy though.

    • LOTUS ESPIRIT 4 CYLINDER THAT HAS A TOP SPEED OF 152MPH AND CLOCKED AT 0-60MPH AT 4.5 SECONDS..AND THATS A SUPER CAR IN THE 80’S… ENGINE SIZE DOES MATTER BUT IF ITS ENGINEERED RIGHT, IT CAN BE AN AWESOME POWER PLANT.

  3. A nice car, considering the manufacturer is new .. give it a shot.. who knows maybe someday , production of their own engine can be possible.. wag lang natin maliitin kasi pilipino ang mga yan, dapat iangat natin.. kalahi naman at maaaring kadugo pa natin ang mga ito at di yung kinaaasaran natin na mga tsinese… To the Aurelio guys, Keep it up..

    • Yes! we should support our own products. We are as whole is already looked down by other people outside the Philippines. Sino pa ba ang magtutulungan kung hindi tayo tayo lang din.

    • Yes you can. Huwag kang bitter, kung di ako nagkakamali makina lang naman ang hindi nila sariling gawa, tsaka hindi lang tayo ang gumagawa niyan. ANg makina ng Lamborghini Gallardo galing Audi. Ang Maserati MC12 kinuha lahat sa Ferrari Enzo, body/shell lang pinagkaiba.

      • e mas tanga ka gung gong, yun nga ginawa nila e. Gumawa lang sila ng kaha ng sasakyan pwede bang sabihin na Philippines made na ang sasakyan?

        Kaya ko nga tinatanong e kung casing lang ginawa mo pwede ng tawaging gawa mo yung buo as an irony question. Bobo mo tanga ka pa LOL

  4. Stupid asshole comments, buti nga may ambition and guts pa tayo to prove to the world and to ourselves that hey we can do something this awesome as well! Herregud, quit trying to bring our countrymen down.

    • Ok lang sana. Pero you should meet them in person, ang yayabang nyang mga taga aurelio!! They feel they built a hyper car, when they haven’t prove sh!T.
