African concept car: SMATI Turtle 1

From the Set Up Shop site (most content in Dutch) comes an African concept car made from scrap parts in Ghana:

The car is ready for export! The final testdrive is to the capital Accra. 250 KM, 12 roadblocks and many dustroads ahead. After nine weeks we develloped an African car from scratch; the SMATI TURTLE 1. Today the Ashanti king Otumfuo Osei Tutu II comes to our workshop in Suame Magazine to bless our journey. For everybody a special day. This is the first time a king visits Suame Magazine. A huge recognition to the people of the area and a huge media hype for the SMATI TURTLE 1.

Their motto? “Let’s make things simple.” Donations are accepted on the website. Seen on bOING bOING. They’re also on Facebook.
