But do you want a street legal dune buggy?

Whilst the vast majority of dune buggies cannot be legally driven on the roads it is possible to make your buggy street legal.

There’s a number of advantages to this, not the least of which is the cool factor. It’s seriously cool to drive a dune buggy around town.
