Jerry Isaac Mallo, a 25-year-old fabricator, breaks record as he made Nigeria’s first carbon fibre sports car named Bennie Purrie – Unlike cars made from aluminium and galvanized sheet, the fibre material of the sport car breaks like bottles, thereby does not cave in during accidents.
With four radiators, the car’s cooling system is top notch, providing needed comfort no matter the temperature Nigerians are always pushing the boundary for great success. The story of 25-year-old fabricator, Jerry Isaac Mallo, is a thing of wonder. The CEO of Bennie Technologies LTD, the young Nigerian made a huge statement in the automobile industry on Thursday, November 28, as he unveiled his sports car named Bennie Purrie.
During the launch at the Transcorp Hilton in Abuja, the 25-year-old said that the sport car is just one of the many marvelous products he will be putting out, Channels TV reports.
In an interview on Friday, November 29, with he TV station, he said that his inspiration to create sport cars was borne out of the fact Nigeria and Africa are big markets 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,” he said. Though the whole materials he used were sourced from the continent, he lamented that sports cars are rarely made in Africa.
He also said that having a lot of hand-skilled individuals in Nigeria without help challenged him to create a platform for them to show what they could do. Mallo, however, said that the present government of Plateau state under the ruling of Simon Lalong has been supportive, adding that he was the chief guest at the launching of the sports car.
What makes his innovation, Bennie Purrie, special, according to the fabricator, is that it is from fibres that break like bottles on impact. That is unlike aluminum or galvanized sheet where people are mashed in during accidents. With four radiators, the car’s cooling system gives comfort regardless of whatever temperature.
