Taliban show off Afghanistan’s first supercar in boasting post

Inroads have reportedly been made in the car industry in Afghanistan after a Taliban spokesperson posted an image of the country's first ever supercar.

A team comprising of 30 engineers from manufacturer ENTOP and Kabul's Afghanistan Technical Vocational Institute revealed a black-coloured sportscar, reminiscent of a McLaren.

Called the 'Mada 9', the vehicle is the first supercar to come from the Middle Eastern country.

Zabihullah Mujahid, a Taliban spokesperson, posted an picture of the Mada 9 on social media as he said that the beauty of the luxurious car was an "honour for the whole country".

Khaama Press, an Afghan-based news agency, stated that the vehicle was constructed by engineers through parts of other vehicles, mostly Toyota parts, in order to create the finished product.

It wasn't just car news that thrusted the Taliban into the spotlight recently, as Prince Harry's admission that he killed 25 members of the Taliban in his new memoir, Spare, brought attention back on the organisation.

After receiving criticism for his confession, the Duke of Sussex explained why he opened up about his kill count during his 10 years in the Army.

Speaking to People, the Duke said: "There's truly no right or wrong way to try and navigate these feelings, but I know from my own healing journey that silence has been the least effective remedy.

"Expressing and detailing my experience is how I chose to deal with it, in the hopes it would help others."

Despite his efforts on attempting to deal with his time at war, which included two deployments in Afghanistan, Harry said he does not believe he will "fully reconcile the painful elements of being at war" despite being "the best soldier I was trained to be".
