The Aurelio has two engine choices, and although they may not compete with the engine performance of traditional supercars made abroad, the Honda B16A V-TEC engine (found in the old Honda Civic Si) and the 2.0 liter Mitsubishi 4G63T turbocharged engine can still pack a punch. The Mitsubishi engine delivers up to 457 horsepower for the Aurelio, capable of propelling the car to a top speed of nearly 290 kilometers per hour and can run a quarter of a mile in under 10 seconds. The car is made of both carbon fiber and fiberglass and is equipped with 18-inch Rota wheels and uses a VR4 front and rear suspension.
