This Bounty hill at Adventure offroad park was one of the toughest bounty
hill climbs I have seen. There was 30 rigs hit the hill and not 1 of them
was able to make it. Out of the 30 rigs over 20 of them ended up flipped
over or upside down.

Featured in the July 2010 issue of eurotuner magazine, this air-cooled VW
Buggy is the personal project of Derek Jenkins. He was formerly the Chief
US Designer for VW but has since moved to Mazda. His buggy is an awesome
mix of traditional air-cooled style with modern materials and aesthetics.
This is possibly the best buggy we've ever seen, so don't miss the full
feature in eurotuner magazine (on sale 15 June 2010) and at eurotuner.com
1972 Volkswagen Dune Buggy STK 1397
Volkswagen dune buggies are without a doubt always head turners. Especially
when they look as good as this one. Check out that vibrant orange paint on
the frame and chassis. It almost hurts your eyes to look at it, and that's
a good thing because you can definitely see it coming; that's what you want
with a custom made vehicle right? Chrome and billet accessories cover this
machine in all the right places and really make everything stand out.
Everything was properly thought through and put together when constructing
The center console is where you find all the controls. Your headlights, fog
lights, ignition switch, and turn signals are all there with the flip of a
switch. Flip up the diamond plated box sitting behind the front seats to
find a two person padded bench seat complete with seat belts. The machine
drives with precision and can turn on a dime. A true joy to drive anywhere
you can put it.
The entire vehicle was constructed from a '72 VW Bug with a few custom
modifications as well. The 1600cc motor runs fantastic and is mated up to a
4 speed manual transmission with stock gears and stock rear end. The engine
and trans coupler have been completely rebuilt as well. Only 600 miles have
been put on this vehicle since the rebuild and that's enough to ease your
mind when looking for a vehicle in a world where many have been abused and
misused. Come check out this one of a kind ride today.
This vehicle is located in our Charlotte, NC showroom. For more
information, please call (704) 598-2130 or toll free (866) 542-8392.
