Volkswagen Details Buggy Up! Concept after Frankfurt Debut
The automaker has only now detailed the idea behind the car, saying the Buggy Up! is inspired by the Meyers Manx and other such Beetle-based beach buggies.
“Based on the brand-new up!, the buggy up! keeps its city sibling's (reinforced) underbody, running gear and drive technology, while the roof-less and door-less exterior is completely redesigned, and the ride height is lowered by 20 mm. Everything is different: the bonnet is flatter, the bumpers have been reworked and the rear has been completely redesigned,” VW says.
Cool features include a tie-down straps for luggage on top of the boot. Everything about this vehicle is waterproof, including the controls for the iPod-compatible infotainment system.
We don’t know if the model will indeed enter production, but it’s definitely mission a surfboard rack if it does. Although it's probabbly not rea-engined like the original and won't cross the 100 hp mark, it's still something worh building for VW, as there’s no competitor in sight right now.
