We Pinoys are well known for our ingenuity in making impossible things happen. And when it comes to customizing cars and coming up with the snazziest and most awesome designs in body kits, we’re hard to beat (think A-Toy, StarBright, etc).
Is that a Ferrari!?
Is this the beginning of a new age, where Pinoys can produce their own SuperCars? Well just take a look at this gorgeous beauty. With an all-fiberglass bodyshell, you’d start to think twice if this was a Ferrari, but it is not. It’s a custom designed car which took 3 years to make.
A peek inside this car reveals a single bucket seat with racing harness. According to the designer, this car came into life with circuit racing in mind. But take note of the LTO registration sticker – this car is actually road legal! It was driven under its own power from Laguna to Alabang just to be featured in the Auto Summit 2009 at Festival Mall, Alabang last August 15-23.
Speaking of power, this car’s propulsion comes from a Honda B16A engine mounted behind the cockpit in a mid-engine, rear wheel drive fashion, just like a typical supercar! This is indeed something we’d like to get our hands on and drive on the circuit just to get a feel of how this car handles.
And if you’re curious about how this car will manage handling the curves, the suspension system was also taken from the donor Honda Civic SiR from which the engine came from.
We all know that a supercar has got to have the curves to make the driver look good in every sort of way. So here’s a view of this car’s behind. This is indeed something that people won’t mind seeing even when overtaken by this beauty on the road.
