    About Aurelio Automobile

That car was produced by Factor Aurelio Motors Philippines, a firm founded by men who, according to a sources at the time, share the “same passion for cars and decided to create the Aurelio supercar to further boost local automotive manufacturing in the Philippines.”

The youngest, Kevin, is in charge of the car's internal mechanisms, while Aurelio is in charge of the exterior and interior styling. Bryan, on the other hand, is the organization's business mind and has prior experience in marketing and investment ventures.

    Aurelio Sports car Exterior

    Almost 80% of the sports car's exterior components — such as the fiberglass and carbon fiber — according to Aurelio's San Pedro, Laguna-based manufacturer, were made in the Philippines. Rota wheels underpin the car. Everything in this automobile, excluding the transmission, some suspension parts, brakes, and engine, was acquired locally.

    And what a striking design has our fellowmen penned. The Aurelio supercar’s front end with its squinting headlights, for one, appears to take after McLaren. It’s also from the British manufacturer’s products where Aurelio seemingly got inspiration, too, in coming up with the aggressive fins and folds on the car’s sides. Oh, and have we mentioned the Aurelio supercar’s doors that swing upwards like Lamborghini cars do?

    Aurelio Automobile Today

    There’s not much buzz surrounding Factor Aurelio Automobile today, and that’s a shame. Our homegrown talents definitely deserve more prominence — especially when these talents produce such striking metal. A Facebook page shows proof of life of the company and its breakthrough concept, though. 

    Official or not, we can only expect a bigger, better homegrown supercar marque when it flanks its scissor doors on center stage once again.
