Watch Offroaders Prove that All Beetles Belong on the Sand Share Comments It’s not uncommon to see Beetles in the sand. Modifying bugs for the dunes is a tradition that has been with us since the dawn of time. What’s less common is seeing an unlifted Beetle tackle the dessert. That, apparently, is why Qatar was invented. Youtube channel Qatar Offroaders recently uploaded this video of a 1974 Beetle playing in the sand. They say it’s unmodified, but we can all at least agree that it’s ill prepared for dessert duty. Or so you might think. These guys prove that taking any extra time and spending any extra money on tires, suspension, engine, or even on an SUV is just a waste. A Beetle just belongs on the sand.
