Meyers Manx dune buggies are four-wheel off road vehicles that have fiberglass bodies, an open frame, and transmissions with either two or four speeds. These dune buggies are made almost entirely of fiberglass -newer models have fiberglass windshields for protection- and rest on the same RR platform as Volkswagen Beetles. However, they have a shorter wheelbase than their Volkswagen cousins, and are adapted for driving over rough terrain.
Meyers Manx dune buggies sit low to the ground and have turbo-charged engines, which gives them their renowned speed. These buggies have round headlights, a dome shape and fenders with high arches, which house their oversize tires. Meyers Manx dune buggies have manual transmissions and side mirrors; they are small but fast enough to classify as street-legal racing vehicles.
In addition to speed, Meyers Manx buggies surpass other buggies in safety features. They have steel roll bars on top, and come with side mirrors and turn signals. These off-road machines seat up to five passengers, with two in front and a three-seat row in back.
As with cars, people can customize their buggies with additional features. Add-ons include a hardtop fiberglass or foam cover, racing seats with a high or low back, and an iconic emblem. Owners can also install a Sidewinder exhaust system for an authentic look, and add nerf racks and skid plates too.
