Izuogu Z-600

Izuogu Z-600 is famous as the first truly Nigerian car to ever enter development. The project was started in 1997, and it was supposed to be a compact car for an everyday Nigerian. The production later entered a problematic period. Nowadays, Z-600 has all but stopped development. The car didn’t really have any emblem. There were some conceptual designs, but the car itself never left the stage of a prototype.
