Good for them, that they chose to mimic a proven platform (Mugen). I hope they do better than Piktor, Shepherd and LRP did with their Buggy offerings. Knowing their Plastics and their overall build quality, I think this may make a good buggy offering, pending product support and pricing.


Do they have an offroad Racer that has been helping with development, that would be good to know?

This Italian buggy shows much of the modern buggys.. but nothing sensational
I think most of the parts are made at the Intech factory though , which is very good quality wise

It gives a dual impression :
very nice, but some elements, I seem to have noticed elsewhere, still no bulkheads in 2 parts ..

It reminds me of an MBX7R, with the center diff out-drives mounted on the front and rear diffs

It’s hard to get a new car rolling. Wonder what their intentions are? If they want to get worldwide notoriety or just in Europe? You can’t fault a company for copying a design, hard to come up with something new and innovative that works. If it was so easy, infinity would have a car out by now. Nice to have an Italian car maker though, I was always a fan of the Italian bred cars of old,crono,flash, bergonzoni.
