A young African man has made headlines after finally fulfilling his long time dream of building his own car.

The South African man from Bergville in Woodford, identified as Thembelani Zondo, said he saved the Sassa R350 (N8,596) grant money given to him and used it to buy materials.

According to the African Products Growth Facebook page, the young South African built the ‘car’ with his hands and didn’t use any machinery in the process.

Although the engine type used by the ‘automobile’ is unknown, the ‘car’ still functions appropriately and can cover some good distance.

From reports, the ‘car,’ a fake Bugatti Veyron, can cover some distance at a speed of up to 100km/h.

Despite some negative comments on Facebook, some others have encouraged the young man to keep it up and that he is an innovator in the making.
