VW Bringing the Beach Buggy Back
What Is A Beach Buggy?
A beach buggy or otherwise known as a Dune Buggy is basically a big toy created for travelling across sand dunes, beaches or deserts. It brings the driver immense pleasure and puts a great big smile on their face, if it doesn’t they are not going fast enough!!
The Volkswagen beetle has been the vehicle of choice to use as a chassis. The first dune buggy was built in 1964 by Bruce Meyers. Globally around 250,000 individual vehicles were built as one off’s from the beetle after Bruce’s creation came out.
Now Volkswagen is bringing the legend back to life!

Other VW Concept cars from Volkswagen include:
The E-Bugster Concept
Continuing on the beetle sporty theme this all electric gem can go from 0 – 60 in 10.9 seconds. It can completely charge in just 35 minutes. Its the design of this car which really gets you going, it looks amazing. The design of the car has been lowered to that of a traditional beetle which gives it a real sporty look. The high tech interior is pure theatre – press start and you are bathed in a white light, which then turns to blue. The pulse light around the instruments pulses around into the doors and around the air nozzles. This car screams cool!
