This Awesome 250 HP Diesel VW Buggy Is Racing In The 2015 Dakar

Truck YeahThe trucks are good!

Dear lord do I adore Stéphane Henrard's diesel VW Buggie running in the 2015 Dakar Rally.

This is a fairly custom buggy rather than a classic baja bug conversion, but I don't mind. It's completely awesome.


The engine in the back, if you're curious, is a 250 horsepower three liter diesel V6. Weight is 1350 kilos, or about 3000 pounds according to the Dakar's official specs.

Here's the interior. Stick some wood paneling in there and you'd have my ultimate dream cabin.


I need one.
