It`s not a one-trick pony, as it`s supposed to be street legal and actually has a license plate with seemingly current tags. However, it is not 100% roadworthy, as there are no windshield wipers and no turn signals other than an outstretched or twisted arm. There are small dents on the hood for the placement of the first and the seller says that the second comes with the car and only has to be installed. This buggy is a legend and an authentic off-road beast. However, he did not claim fame through off-road appearances. Who would have ever thought that all the power of a 1967 VW with superior suspension could give this buggy a unique performance experience? Whether it`s parts or just advice, Carolina Dune buggies employees can help you with their more than 40 years of experience in VW repair, engine building and dune buggy construction. About ten years of mechanical wonder have gone into this buggy, and the results are overwhelming. This dune buggy is another bespoke Volkswagen chassis with a standard 560+hp LS6 V8 engine. The Megalodon incorporated a few other ingenious buggy designers into some additions, but Wilkey refined every aspect of the car to his liking. The fiberglass looks solid and the tires seem to have a good button, so there`s not much you can do to upgrade the buggy, other than installing those turn signals and maybe a few windshield wipers. With that sweat in mind, what should we think of this $8,500 Dune Buggy asking price? This gives you an impractical but fun car, and one that represents a bit of automotive legend – that of the Dune Buggy madness of the late 1960s and early 70s.
Instead, it`s for a fun trip to the beach, or maybe actually on the actual dunes on that beach once you get there. To keep everyone in the car, there are four-point Crow belts everywhere. Wilkey worked with HP Tuners and several others to shoot a nine-minute video of Megladon invading the streets of downtown Las Vegas. Like its original “Shark Attack” creation, the Megalodon is also built for the road, with a design equipped with all legal additives. Since 1989, The Edge Products has been the innovator and world leader in the design of lightweight mini-buggies. Our vehicle plans are easy for the manufacturer to follow and are backed by a comprehensive catalog of parts and kitsets. Shark Attack tore through the streets of San Diego and surrounding areas, landing ridiculous jumps, shredding descents and accelerating embankments. Just as legendary as the buggy itself is the original owner and mastermind behind the machine. Due to a lack of VW Beetle donors for the chassis, only a few people build fun cars like Nice Price or No Dice Dune Buggy. It`s a shame and it makes fun cars like this a rare commodity. Let us decide what all this might be worth.
This irresistibly fascinating buggy dune broke the internet in January 2016. Its touch of light blue, quirky colors and monstrous stunts rightly justify its name – “Shark Attack”, also known as “Land Shark”. Now, Blake Wilkey is a legend and known in the off-road world. He currently has a buggy shop in Mexico, where he crushes the sand dunes with his new mechanical beauty “The Megalodon”. The government requires a dune buggy to have traditional safety lights such as turn signals, headlights, taillights, and brake lights, and these are exactly the requirements the Shark Attack has been equipped with. What do you think, is this Dune buggy worth that $8,500 as it is featured in its ad? Or does this price push you into the buggy? Not only is the Shark Attack iconic around the world, but it continues to be at the top of our list as one of the sickest street buggies to ever touch the sidewalk. Carolina Dune Buggies is an authorized Berrien buggy from the Acme dealer for fiberglass Dune buggy bodies, Dune buggy chassis, and fiberglass trike bodies. We also offer buggy dune sidepods, windshield frame assemblies, show bar cages and accessories. He admits the name on the side of the buggy, its license plate and Youtube fame when the authorities caught it.
