Mr. Karim Amin and two of his closest friends have built a sports car that drives on water like a boat but also drives on land.
The costs between $19000 and $45000 and the price are expected to go up as more demand comes in and after a bigger family car is built that can accommodate 4 people.
The version of the car available is a small one which can accommodate only 2 people and is equipped with some of the latest technology like a music system that uses phone Bluetooth, a screen to enable you to watch videos and a GPS in case you get lost.
The car is entirely built by Egyptians expect the engine which is manufactured in Japan.
The car is very popular at beaches in Egypt because why buy a boat if a sport can drive on water.
Egypt is one of the few countries trying to transition from the middle-income trap by investing in technology and is one of the leading countries in technology on the Africa continent.
There’s no doubt that Africa is on move and it doesn’t matter whether it’s slow, the fact that the continent is embracing innovation and technology, tells a simple story of a bright future.
Africa will one day also be there since its population is very young and becoming bigger by the day which will turn into not only the biggest consumer market but also innovation center of the world in coming years.
