Next Generation Buggy!



We received the First of Our New Generation Buggys here at the X-Centre this Week! We have had it Built in Thailand by a Renowned Builder and Our intention is to Slowly Faze out all Our Existing Buggys and replace them with these! Our Old Buggys have given Great Service but given that everything has to be imported it was becoming increasingly Uneconomical to Operate them. Our New Buggys use all Parts available in Thailand. And having Car Running Gear they are hopefully more economical and Reliable!

This one has a 1000cc Daihatsu Engine, 4 Cylinder, Fuel Injected, Turbo & Intercooler. 4 Speed Automatic. I think it is Too Fast for Our Customers so next one Might be without the Turbo & Intercooler? It Goes Real Well and Drives Like a Car. Great Fun!!! Take a Look.

Top Stuff. People are already calling in and Claiming I want to Drive this!!!

Cheers Ian.

    Wow ! Much as I enjoyed my trip in the older buggies these things look like a big leap forward in technology and POWER ! I guess they’re heavier so just wondering if they climb the steep bits as well as the others and whether they are autos or not.

    Thanks for the Compliment Phil! Yes these Buggys have No Problem with the Hills as they have a Much Bigger Car engine and they are a lot Lighter than they look? Quite Surprising actually. The Staff gave it a Good Test in the Jungle the other day and gave it the “Thumbs Up” saying it Climbed No Problems!!! Lovely to Drive and very Comfortable!
    Cheers Ian.

    These look wicked. I have been looking around for a buggy of my own for some time. I was wondering if you could provide any information on the company who built them for you, and approximate cost of something like this. Any info would be appreciated. Look forward to heading up your way and having a blast.

      The Buggys Cost around US$ 9 to 10.000. The Guys who build them are down near Bangkok and just build them to Order. Made to Your Specifications!

      The Buggys are Built By some Guys down by Bangkok when Ordered, No Factory as Such just on their land. They are made to Your own specifications. We found the Larger 1300 or 1500cc Toyota Engines more reliable than the Daihatsu 1000cc Turbo. You can Order from Us if You want?
