The Buckshot Racing “Bugshot” is a tribute to the classic Herbie “The Love Bug” 1963 VW racing beetle. Just like in the hit movie, this car has a mind of its own with 700+ horsepower 6.2 Liter Supercharged V8 Small Block LT4 Corvette Engine and Albins Transaxle to put all that power to the ground. The Gibson exhaust gives the “Bugshot” a nice throaty rumble hinting at the 700+ horsepower.
Well known for making ultra stylized yet extremely functional sand cars, builder Andrew Buck has distilled his 30+ year of off-road experience into this stunning multi-purpose off-road car build that can handle the dirt, sand, and the street. The all 4130 Chromoly tube chassis is wrapped in wide-body design featuring a VW center pan and vin # coupled with a custom windshield with power windows and wiper system making it completely street legal. For lights, Andrew put two duel Vision X Unite lights on the front and the brand new Vision X Unite curved light bar on the roof that beautifully matches the curves of the classic VW style body.
