Range Rover Traka?

Is this a badass dune buggy or is it just stupid?

Both. Badass if you are sitting in it and stupid if you are looking at it.

Fugly. I bet it's fun to drive as long as it doesn't get wet.

That's a Dakar. They did a similar one called a Bushranger in OZ.

Dude... You look really good in a dress then...

------ Follow up post added August 25th, 2014 07:22 PM ------

Seriously though.. I think this truck would be a shitload of fun.. I looked into getting it into the USA a couple of months ago when it was for sale before.. But with the current bs going on with CBP wasn't willing to chance it... There is one of these kits (similar) for sale and it goes right into a disco one frame and bulkhead etc... Guessing you could just leave it registered as a D1... Could be a poor mans bowler maybe.. Worked 4.6 engine, bigger suspension, beadlocks, auto trans etc etc.. Nice and light and purpose built,.. Shitloads of fun...
