Between the high costs of car insurance; and perhaps the impracticality of having a fast car in a country with bad traffic congestion, one can dream.

Price: Around PHP 1.6 Million
It’s a locally-made sports car that costs almost the same price as a hybrid. The Aurelio’s top speed runs at 290 kph and runs on a 2.0 liter Mitsubishi 4G63T turbocharged engine. While it has raised some criticism because it has a long way to go, it doesn’t change the fact that it’s a locally developed beast of a machine.

BMW 118i Sport Essential AT
Price: Around PHP 1.9 Million
This two-door convertible coupe will probably let you do that if the traffic conditions are right, and that’s mostly on the expressways out of the metro. The 118i runs on a 2.0 liter DOHC 16-v inline-4 engine and has a top speed of 291 kph, just about right for some summer cruising.
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG V8 DCT
Price: Around PHP 18.5 Million
It’s a high-performance 2-door (and 2 seater) coupe with a top speed of 320 kph. It runs on a 6.2 liter DOHC 32-Valve V8 engine, and has a sleek look. This is definitely the kind of car that could turn heads no matter where it goes.

Lexus LFA 4.8L V10 AT
Price: Around 36.5 Million
Given the fact that its top speed is 325 kph, you might as well run free. You might feel like a drift king behind its wheel, because the Lexus LFA has rear-wheel drive.
Bentley Continental GT
Price: Around PHP 20 Million
It boasts a top speed of 330 kph, all thanks to its 4.0 liter DOHC V8 engine. This is the kind of car that may require a certain style to complete it. Think along the lines of a certain MI-6 super spy with a penchant for wrecking all the cars he gets into.
These are just some of the fastest cars that you could eventually have, with a lot of hard work and saving. The others are on the higher end of both the price and speed spectrum.
