A Nigerian Fabrication Engineer and CEO of Bennie Technologies LTD Jerry Isaac Mallo, has produced Nigeria’s first carbon fibre car.
The 25 year old engineer recently unveiled Nigeria’s first carbon fibre car which he manufactured on November 28.
He received much applause from almost all Nigerians while unveiling the vehicle, and also hinted on creating more innovative products.
He also added that he got the inspiration to create the sports car because Nigeria and Africa is a very big market for luxury vehicles.
“In Europe, we learnt that making the car is just half of the challenge, and selling it is the other half; Africa usually is the target place to sell these vehicles, so I feel there’s a big market for it here,” he said.
He indicated that most people get crushed in cars because those cars are made from aluminium or galvanized sheets that cannot absorb shocks at high speed adding that his cars come with 130 big horsepower which goes from 0 to 120 in 12seconds and also has a 2.0litre engine. He also hailed the state government for their support.
