A Filipino Supercar?

Last month, The Manila Times reported that a trio of young Filipino entrepreneurs had recently completed development of a new sports car built almost entirely from the ground up using Philippine-produced parts. The design, dubbed the Aurelio after its primary designer, touts over 460 hp per ton and is capable of speeds in excess of 180 mph. While you probably will not see many car articles here on Modern Rifleman, I can certainly appreciate the work that goes into something as impressive as the Aurelio. Perhaps more impressive is that the car will run around $37,000 , but production will be limited to less than 10 builds per year due to manufacturing capacity limitations.
