How do you make the most of summer in the typical 1960’s sun and sand style? Hop on a buggy and scour the local dunes and beaches in search of the perfect surf spot. It was a done thing back then and seemed pretty cool for a freethinker who knows how to have a good time. the original Meyers Manx was created in 1964 by Bruce F. Meyers in Newport Beach. But the buggy by Berluti is designed by Kris Van Assche and seamlessly blends technical simplicity and artisanal know-how. It’s alarmingly light at 500kg for an off-roader with specs like an air-cooled flat-four engine with 1600 cc, twin carburetor, and 90 HP are topped off with a rollover protection structure that doubles as a surfboard stand working wonderfully in its favor. I love how this buggy meant to rough it out is actually very elegantly finished with a bespoke choice of leathers and patinas. This can be observed on the dashboard, steering wheel, gear lever, and the two seats all encased in leather and concluded with a Berluti logo and an understated B on the wheel.
Take a sneak peek at the back of the car and you will be pleased to find Globe-Trotter luggage cut in the same fabric encased in black leather and a palladium-finished brass Berluti logo on the hood. For those who love the outdoors and cant wait to hit the roads, Berluti’s Buggy is available through special order only.
