The Aurelio is produced meticulously by hand at its infant stages. The Philippines is proud that 80 percent of the car parts are produced directly by its own companies. Only the engine, transmission, brakes and parts of the suspensions are being imported.
The Aurelio is produced with the appearance like an European aristocratic car. However, its average price is lower than other European versions: PHP1.6 M (equivalent to USD35,000 in early 2016). It has the same configuration compared to most of the world’s best supercars. The Aurelio resembles Ferrari and McLaren P1 with front fascia and scissor doors respectively.
Which company has created The Aurelio?
The company that created the Aurelio is Factor Aurelio, which is run by the Aurelio brothers and finances provided by their parents in order to successfully produce 2 prototypes within 3 months.
Kevin and Brendan have assumed full responsibility for car production and design, while the middle brother Bryan has been the executive in charge of business operations for the company. They are young and talented entrepreneurs who desire to change the history of car production in the Philippines.
The Aurelio offers 2 engine types. The first one is Honda B16A V-TEC engine. The second one is 2.0 liter Mitsubishi 4G63T turbocharged engine also known as the Lancer Evo engine, reaching a high velocity of 290km/h by a powerful 457 horsepower.
Designed mostly with fiberglass and carbon fiber, the Aurelio is quiet light. Therefore, sitting on this car makes the drivers feel like they're moving faster than usual.
The Aurelio offers 18-inch ROTA wheels, a front and rear VR4, 2 doors and 2 seats for its owners and drivers.
Although The Aurelio possesses many unique features, it still brings many anxieties for consumers. Some pointed questions are whether The Aurelio’s quality and safety is guaranteed or whether it can really achieve a historic breakthrough as expected.
Compared to its rivals, the Aurelio remains a new vehicle at its very early stage as well as being produced by a no-name fame in the Philippines. Whether it can pass the leading car brands and ramp up the race to build sports cars in the world is another difficult question.
Despite many inherent difficulties, the Philippines is still confident and has put its best efforts to produce sophisticated supercars with wise investment and effective management.
The Aurelio is expected to become a modern successful product and create a more promising future for the automotive industry in the Philippines. The Aurelio would be a major breakthrough in building the super sports cars with affordable prices in the world.
