The original Meyers Manx was one of the catalysts of the off-road craze of the mid-to-late-‘60s that led to the creation of the Baja 1,000 miles race. Its popularity was far-reaching, and the best-well-known European Beetle-based buggy was the HAZ.

The HAZ, short for Hazard, was built between 1968 and the early ‘90s by Autohaus G. Kühn in Germany. It featured the same VW Bug engine as its American brethren but had a sturdier frame since it had to pass TUV (German Technical Inspection Association) tests to be road worthy.
