Salamander beach buggy

 

The Salamander beach buggy was originally designed by the late Rudi Malan from Kit car center.
 

The Salamander offered something completely different in terms of design based on a VW beetle Floor pan .The car is relatively cheap to assembly as the fibreglass body bolts directly onto a standard VW beetle Floorpan
