The DualSport Manxter fills the need for a stylish, significant, off-road machine that is still street-legal. Too many people spend serious dollars for an off-road machine that can only be used in restricted parts of the desert. The Manxter DualSport’s body was raised 3” to accommodate the attention given to the heavy-duty mid-travel suspension and the wheelbase has been extended by nearly 6” for better off-road stability. Though the basic body-style is the same as the Manxter 2+2, the stance of this car has a far more aggressive look.
The Meyers Manx proprietary front suspension sub-frame allows the Super Beetle chassis to be used – a real plus as they are far more available and less expensive.
The Meyers Manx proprietary transmission mounts allow the transmission to be tipped up for more departure clearance.
The Meyers Manx proprietary steering assembly allows for a 1½ x 1 ratio rack & pinion steering box.
Yes, it fits on a stock VW Beetle chassis. The Manxter 2+2 uses a stock VW Beetle chassis of the IRS vintage ('68 - '74), but _not_ including the Super Beetle. The Manxter DualSport can use the Super Beetle as well.
Again, the Manxter DualSport can use either a VW engine or the reliable water-cooled engines such as the Subaru, allowing this car to be dually capable on the street as well as off-road.
