Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad on his state visit in Turkey last week said that he plans to promote collaboration with Turkish companies in the production of a “super car” in order to further enhance the capability of the nation’s automotive industry.

He said Turkish supercar producer Onuk had indicated willingness to cooperate with Malaysia to produce the exotic vehicle.

The statement came after Mahathir visited Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen International Airport where two super car models manufactured by Onuk, the Onuk Sazan and Onuk S56/G, are on display.

The Prime Minister said he had long been aware of Turkish companies’ capabilities to produce such cars but only now could he see it first-hand.

“I was aware of their capability. But there was no follow-up at the time as I was not the prime minister then, so making progress would have been difficult,” he said, adding that “now they are ready to collaborate… not only with that type of car but also with other cars,’’ he told Malaysian reporters at the airport, according to Bernama.

He also said that Turkish industry leaders have offered Malaysia their expertise to produce their envisaged own national car.
