A fabrication engineer and CEO of Bennie Technologies LTD, Jerry Isaac Mallo has unveiled Nigeria’s first carbin fibre car which he manufactured on Thursday November 28.
The engineer who is just 25-years-old, hinted on creating more innovative products and said he was inspired 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 is usually is the target place to sell these vehicles, so I feel there’s a big market for it here,” Mallo told Channels Television Sunrise Daily on Friday November 29.
The Plateau state indigene who said his state government has been quite supportive, disclosed that Governor Simon Lalong was the chief unveiler of his car named Bernie Purrie.
Mallo said most people get crushed in cars because those cars are made from aluminium or galvanized sheets that cannot absorb shocks at high speed. He added that his cars comes with 130 big horsepower which goes from 0 to 120 in 12seconds and also has a 2.0litre engine.
