Its pretty obvious that Rugged Radios has an affection for VW off-road vehicles. Then again, who doesn’t? We all love a sweet Baja Bug, but Rugged Radios went to the next level when they converted their 2015 Polaris RZR XP1000 into an awesome VW Beetle / Baja Bug replica. Purists may scathe at the thought of a VW body on a RZR, but for those of us who appreciate a good custom build we are intrigued by this level of creativity.

We had the chance to get a close up look on this sweet machine and wanted to bring it here for you all to drool over as well. We hope to get a close up on their new VW Manx bodies RZR XP Turbo they unveiled at this years Sand Sports Super Show, but for now, enjoy the Baja Bug RZR!
