You’ll need a wedge of cash! Luxury golf buggy costs more than a PORSCHE

March 1, 2013 | by | 0 Comments

Wealthy golfers can now ‘drive’ like Lewis Hamilton in this sports car-inspired buggy – but it costs more than a Porsche.

Luxury golf cart maker Garia has teamed up with car customisers Mansory for the limited edition ‘Currus’ model.

The open-top roadster boasts luxuries normally found on sports cars including alloy wheels, leather interior, CD player and carbon fibre body.

Powered by lithium batteries, the road legal Garia Mansory Currus is capable of an impressive 37mph and a range of 37 miles.

This buggy’s looks and performance will make it ideal for ostentatious golfers looking to get one-up on their friends at Wentworth and The Belfry.

But the vehicle, which will be limited to a production run of seven, comes with a staggering £70,000 price-tag.

This means it costs more than a 175mph Porsche Cayman S – and almost ten times the price of a standard golf buggy.

This limited edition roadster is called Garia Mansory Currus and is designed in close collaboration with Mansory, the car customizer famous for customizing luxury super cars such as Bentley, Bugatti, and Ferrari

Danish-based Garia claim that for a “genuine race car feel”, the Currus comes with three unique different driving modes – golf, street and race – which adjust the buggy’s top speed and acceleration parameters.

Anders Lynge, designer and creative director for Garia, said: “The Garia Roadster is really the closest you get to a golf car version of your favorite luxury sports car.

“We were inspired by the sense of freedom and joy you get from riding a sports car and we wanted to translate that experience to the golf car.”

The Currus golf buggy, which has two seats and holds two bags, will make its global debut at next week’s Geneva Motor Show.
