AADA looking for prototype builder.

The AADA at this time is looking for a developer or individual to build a prototype of the AADA car. We would like to see it developed for Africa. We are aware that alot of changes would have to be done to build a sustainable version. The one you see on the title page is a show car, to demonstrate that suitable should also be lovely to look at. At present we are still in the search and hope to find a suitable candidate.
