Meyers Manx Designer Buggy



Beach buggies are cool. That's a given. But with the nature of what they're built for, it's not uncommon to find them shabby, rattly and, thanks to repeated exposure to salty sea air, a little frilly around the chassis. Derek Jenkins' buggy, however, is different.
A serial SEMA entrant, Derek knows a thing or two about show cars. Designing a tubular chassis from scratch, he hung a virtually stock 1970 Meyers Manx fibreglass body on top - the aesthetic theme nods to both Lamborghini and Ducati; the former in its Grigio Telesto hue with racing stripes, the latter with the red-treaded tyres, carbon-fibre accents and motorbike exhaust. The finished product is a brilliant modern twist on a forty year-old design, looking equally at home on the dunes as the show stands. (Probably wouldn't be ideal for our climate, though...)
