The Piranha, designed for off-road performance handling, strength & durability without the size problems of a full size off-road dune buggy.
Simple but effective single 'A" are suspension soaks up the bumps with the greatest of ease which makes the Piranha very easy to drive.
Powered by a water cooled motor cycle motor from 500-1000cc the Piranha has a high power to weight ratio that car powered buggies only dream about.
Buying the raw materials, fabricating and welding the Piranha parts yourself to the pans will cost approximately $3500 to $4500 Australian minus motor to construct the complete vehicle.
