Tempted to put this post in the Vintage page but...figure the Dakar page might have better luck in ID'ing it. Admittedly I'm not a Dakar expert but I haven't seen this vehicle before...single seat? Mid 80's??

a team responded to me on IG...its a Sunhill buggy...this photo is of the Sunhill buggy from 1980...the team is prepping a Sunhill Buggy from 1979 for the Classic Dakar event running this year. Sunhill himself went on to make a ton of buggies over the years to race in the Dakar...each one more interesting looking than the next. This white one had a spare tire/wheel riding in the shotgun seat....Believe it was a Renault 1.6L engine as the powerplant...
