See that? That’s Coco Martin promoting his new film and current entry in the Metro Manila Film Festival, Jack Em Popoy: The Puliscredibles. Of course, this being Top Gear Philippines and not a showbiz website, we’d prefer
Why bring this up now? Well, because the actor and his badass 4x4 were featured in what was by far the hottest celebrity car story on our website. Cardo Dalisay topped the likes of Yassi Pressman and Kim Chiu’s Manila-proof vans, Aga Muhlach’s motorbikes, and Sofia Andres’s near-emergency in the 2018 Toyota Vios Cup.

Ah, the lifestyles of the rich and famous. This story features Barbie Forteza’s Toyota Fortuner, Liza Soberano’s pimped-up Hyundai Starex, Ella Cruz’s Jeep Wrangler, and more.
“Lee’s photos of his ride date back all the way to the earlier half of 2016 (see below), so this is definitely pre-facelift (if you couldn’t tell by the subtler foglight housings and old logo on the side). Not content with the car’s stock appearance, he’s equipped it with a
