Moreno Filandi relies solely on his skills as a mechanic to build handmade custom cars from metal work with two incredible supercars already finished. Moreno’s second and most recent creation, the Moreno Ever S, was built on top of a red 1990 Mercedes.

His first car – the 600 horsepower, 340 kph “Filandi Uragano” – took him four years to build and cost 12,000 euros. Filandi made the aluminum body and all the other parts except for the tires and engine himself.
The only good thing to report is the author kept the SL 500’s naturally-aspirated V8 5.0-liter engine which produces 306 HP (225 kW) and 339 lb-ft (460 Nm) of torque.
The chassis had to go through some changes as the windshield frame has been removed but the suspension arms and gearbox were kept from the original car.Moreno Filandi says he built the car for himself so it’s probably not for sale.
