The new Volkswagen up! might have caught all the attention at Volkswagen’s stand in Frankfurt, but next to it there were six other concept cars worth taking a look at. The first of these concepts is called the Volkswagen study buggy up! and unlike the original Buggy launched in the 1960s which was based on the Beetle, the new concept is based on the recently launched Up!

The new study buggy up! keeps the underbody, running gear, and
drive technology of the up!, but adds a completed redesigned roof-less exterior skin, and a lowered ride height (lowered by 20 mm). The study will immediately be recognized as an Up! model, but the bonnet is built much flatter, the bumpers show an independent character, and the roof was inspired by small convertible sports cars. The study is also about 44 mm longer and 31 mm wider than the production Up!, while the height has been lowered by 190 mm. The new buggy sits on a new set of 18" alloy wheels and is finished in a "hot orange paint which was specially created for this vehicle.

Another feature for the new study buggy up! is that it is 100% beach ready; everything on the interior is waterproof, including the controls for the infotainment system.

This vehicle is a wow! I have to agree to Evan. Its combination of sweetness and
aggressiveness is seriously impressive. The color combination and detailing is really good.
This buggy is truly cool!

I’m impressed on how they perfectly managed to combine the sweetness and the angst of this convertible buggy up! Moreover, I have to agree that it really looks great on that color.

It looks so unique on its platform, and I truly admire it on that. Moreover, I never thought either that color orange could also give an awesome and elegant look on a vehicle just like what it did on this one.

I’m so impressed with this buggy up. The side rims look very perfect for me even the wheels emphasized the angst that it had. I must say that this is the coolest open-top car that I saw. I would also love to have it for myself.

No doubt! This study buggy up of Volkswagen can really catch lots of attention. Seeing cars like this on the road is absolutely very peculiar, and I bet it will be too expensive on its production.

Its like a character car in the movie, hehe well its buggy look makes it young and fresh looking. But this really not my type. Maybe it will be better if its white color.

Great features of a car. I think this car is one of the most in the market because of the unique design. And What is the roof of this car if raining?
