Volkswagen Concept Buggy Up!

The Volkswagen Buggy Up! is a two-seater concept car based on the production Up! and inspired by the 1960s dune buggies.

Presented by Volkswagen at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show among six different! concepts, the Buggy Up! takes inspiration from the original buggy, born in California in the 1960s.

This two-seater show car features an open layout with a reinforced structure. Compared to the production Up!, the Buggy Up! is slightly longer (3,584 mm) and wider (1,672 mm, +31 mm) but significantly lower at 1,288 mm (-190 mm).

The exterior is very specific and is characterized by the absence of side doors, the large rear roll bar, the matt and rugged “metallic grey” bumpers and side sills and a redesigned rear section.

In addition, the hood is much flatter, and the open side sills contribute to the open-air driving experience.

The dynamic stance is underlined by the minimalistic overhangs and the large 18-inch alloy wheels fitted with 205 / 40 tires.

The trunk lid is constructed of two pieces; the main part of the lid lifts upward like a classic trunk lid, but the section above the bumper folds down, like the tailgate on a pick-up.

On top of the lid, there are also tie-down straps for a set of luggage.

The interior is completely waterproof; flooding is prevented by drains in the vehicle floor, by the open side sills and even by water drains in the neoprene coated shell seats.

In case of rain, it is possible to stretch a sail between the window frames and the roll bar.

The water-resistant infotainment system has an iPod/iPhone dock and can be removed along with its active loudspeakers so that it can be used as a sound system for parties on the beach.

  6. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  18. I believe what you wrote was very logical. But, what about
    this? what if you were to create a awesome headline?
    I ain’t saying your content isn’t good., but suppose you added a title that grabbed people’s attention? I
    mean Volkswagen Concept Buggy Up! is kinda boring.
    You should glance at Yahoo’s front page and
    watch how they create news titles to get people to open the links.
    You might try adding a video or a pic or two to get readers interested about
    what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it might make your
    website a little bit more interesting.
