Factor Aurelio Automobile has introduced the first supercar from Philippines, the Aurelio.

Factor Aurelio Automobile has introduced the first supercar from Philippines, the Aurelio.

It represents the work of 21-year-old engineering student Kevin Factor and Brendan Aurelio, the owner of Pacita Fibertech. They founded Factor Aurelio Automobile (FAA) and have recently finished work on their first product, a two-door sports coupe equipped with either a Mitsubishi 4G63T 2.0 liter turbo intercooled DOHC 16-valve engine or a Honda B16A DOHC VTEC 16-valve motor.

It benefits from a handmade chassis and on the inside it has several components made from fiberglass reinforced plastic and carbon fiber. It adopts scissor doors, a VR4 front & rear suspension setup and sits on 18-inch Rota alloy wheels.

Performance details have not been released but the Aurelio is billed as a supercar although a four-cylinder engine doesn't sound overly impressive and the design sends out a bit of a kit car vibe with some Italian influences.
