Now that is nice, how do you make roofless cars?
Just like the Philippines’ climate
a mod called negatape for removing the roof, the Roadster pack for adding seats and whatnot, and a lot of patience

By the way, are you planning a second Philippine automotive company once Quezon Motor’s lineup is finished?
Is anything ever finished? there’s always expansion, there’s always updating old cars.
Looks like the '06 Cordova had some Japanese styling cues on the table.
Not like I am complaining, it looks the part, and certainly does the job with beefy engine options (both the 2.4L Inline 4 and the 3.6L V6 pushing 200+ hp, a barrier that only more expensive sports car offered for the Philippine market at the time can do).
Quezon isn’t finished, I still have an entire model lineup to finish.
I’ve taken a break from Automation for a while until all mods are updated for the new engine, and once that’s done i’ll continue work on this.
tOTALLY NOT HONDA ACCORD MY KAIBIGAN AHAHAHA YES YES NO JAPAN PHILIPPINE ONLY HAHA
This article is about the Quezon Laguna luxury sports sedan manufactured by Quezon Motors. For the boring French midsize car, see Renault Laguna.
At last, the wait was over. After a whole 20 years of hiatus the iconic Quezon Laguna name would return in its fourth-generation (2008-2014).
Quezon decided to upmarket the Laguna name. Instead of competing with its former rivals, the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro, the Laguna now competed with cars like the Cadillac CTS-V, Mercedes E63 AMG,
and higher end Marksman Sabres.
Unlike any of its competitors however, the Laguna never was available as a 2-door coupe.
From launch it would receive 2 engine choices of either a 3.6L SOHC V6 or a 5.0L DOHC V8, both mated to a 7-speed automagic transmission.
The 3.6L Quezon V6 was similar to the one in the Cordova, with power increased to 292 in order to handle the Laguna’s heavier weight. The Laguna equipped with a V6 can hit 60 in 6 seconds.
Meanwhile on the higher end of things, the Quezon 5.0 V8 made 465 horsepower, and could hit 60 in 4.6 seconds, matching that of the Cadillac.
Interior-wise the Lagunas’ interiors were nothing to scoff at. With leather upholstery all around ,subtle hints of carbon fibre around the dashboard and centre console, power operated everything idk whatever and a special touchscreen SatNav manufactured by Philippine company MyPhone.
7.5 GT (2010-2012)
In 2010, Quezon would produce a variant of the Laguna featuring a 7.5L DOHC V8 making 730hp, called the “7.5 GT”. Quezon announced that the 7.5 GT would be available with either a 6-speed manual transmission or a 7-speed automatic. In the end, only the 7-speed automatic would be sold to the public due to problems with manufacturing. The 7.5GT hit 60 in a not-much-quicker 4.3 seconds with the 7-speed auto.
In the midst of all that however, the 7.5 Laguna GT would set a record for one of the fastest four-door sedans around the Nürburgring in 2011, with a lap time of 7:51 (While running semi-slick tyres).
That is a seriously impressive machine - it’s as much sports as luxury, and it’s powerful and opulent enough to make a Wraith or Flying Spur blush. I still wish there were more exterior colors available; a deep metallic green or blue would be nice to have at this price point.
Filipinos can seriously make a car. Hot damn.
I never expected Quezon to make vehicles like the Princesa . But the delicate and beautifully put together designs leave for an incredible result, and I cannot get over those taillights. Not to mention the insane and incredible engineering of these beautiful and ferocious vehicles are very realistic and give the cars much more personality than they already do. Good job I’ve been left speechless multiple times by these vehicles.
Thank you very much!
No problem I always enjoy seeing your cars! And decided to finally share my thoughts.
The way all of your cars fit together perfectly is incredible! I love how original your cars are and how they are always recognizable as a Quezon. The Princesa has a wonderful design and so much detail on the website, hopefully I can reach such levels of proffessionalism. Cant wait to read about the next one!
