The original VW Beetle was a perfect candidate for a Dune Buggy, and many old VWs were converted to blast across sand dunes around the world. VW had a bash at their own Dune Buggy back in 2000, but now, ahead of a reveal at the Detroit Auto Show next week, we have what looks like a buggy from VW that could actually be heading for production – the Volkswagen Beetle Dune Concept.
VW has revealed a single image of their Beetle Dune Concept (above) that shows a jacked-up Beetle with big wheels and tyres, a ski rack on the back and a bit of cosmetic titivation.
The Dune Concept is based on the production Beetle so gets a 201 PS 2.0 litre turbo engine and front wheel drive, but any production version would probably come with the underpinnings from the Golf R with 4WD.
The VW Beetle Dune Concept will make its debut at Detroit on Monday 13th January 2014.
