Two young men from Kenya have managed to assemble a two-piston supercar prototype.
The visionary youth have also branded their ride Doshi Safari, but it is yet unclear why they went for the name.

Their story was shared on Twitter by NTV news reporter Bill Otieno who revealed the design was a product of their creation and could go up to a speed of 80km per hour.
The car appeared to be in the latter stages of construction and was made up of heavy metal and had two wheels, with the front being much smaller than the hind ones.
The men, whose names are unknown, even ensured there were side mirrors on the car.

Otieno revealed that the supercar was the second innovation done by the two and urged that their talent be supported.
What was even more impressive is that the cars look somewhat like the Laikipia BJ-50 which are in mass production after a company, Sagak AutoTech, partnered with the government.
The company got the partnership through Kenya Export Promotion and government's Branding Agency whose mission is to brand Kenya, export Kenyan products and build Kenya.
The agency made the announcement in a statement on Wednesday, July 22, saying the partnership will open the door for the company to sell their cars beyond the country’s borders.
The Ministry of Trade Cabinet Secretary (CS) Betty Maina officially opened the Sagak Auto tech plant assembly line on Thursday, July 17.
The car would be sold at KSh 450,000, with a capacity of seven passengers and maximum speed of 70km per hour.
Maina endorsed the car model noting the government will offer its support in production and marketing to stimulate the economy.
It has, however, received backlash from Kenyans who claim it is overpriced with some likening it to smokie trollies.

The video, which was uploaded by Facebooker Leslie Kilian, received hundreds of reactions from the impressed app users.
