South African man Hendrick Chebanga wows social media with his handmade sports car (Photo)
Hendrick Chebanga has managed to impress social media users with his innovative creations. The 31-year-old Hammanskraal resident built a sports car using recycled plastic and scrap metal. Chebanga has called on the South African government to act fast and help him become the first African to manufacture a car by hand in Africa
Groundbreaking engineering, especially in the automotive industry, is often associated with international countries. However, one man is proving that South Africans have what it takes to compete with the rest of the world.
Chebanga recently opened up on his latest project and the difficulties he had to overcome to complete his sports car.
According to the 31-year-old engineer, it took him roughly seven months to build the sports car. However, he did admit the lack of resources, such as enough funds and materials, slowed down the process.
Chebanga added the production time would have been cut down to just two months if he had all the resources he needed from the start.
Chebanga revealed his passion for innovation began when he was just 4 years old. He quickly realised he had a knack for engineering.
So, he pursued his dream in engineering but lack of finance made it tough to take on a large project. Chebanga further disclosed that, he started manufacturing toys and selling them to generate capital for a larger project.
He has since called on the South African government to help him because it would benefit the entire country in the future. Chebanga said his handmade sports car can compete with some of the best machine manufactured motor brands in the world.
