Roxy is a beautiful BRG and tan custom Bugeye, and one of the most powerful Bugeyes we’ve built. She has a new supercharger boosting her 1275 engine from roughly 65 HP up to 90 HP, and the result is just a joy to drive.
This blower unit is nothing like the Judson kits you sometimes see on 948 Bugeyes. This is a modern Moss kit, and while the end result is excellent, there are about six different build challenges where you are “on your own” and fabrication and customization of the kit is required in order to get it all to work in a Bugeye. Russ the Bugeyeguy master technician nailed all the issues, and Roxy’s blower kit is working flawlessly. Thank you Russ!
The supercharger option is one more way we can build a unique Bugeye for our customers who want a Sprite that roars!
We also have a normally aspirated 1380 CC Bugeye that recorded more than 100 HP on the dyno, and perhaps we will do a comparison test… that one might even be quicker… but what I love about Roxy is the steady increase in power right up to the redline, which makes driving Roxy that much more fun.
You can see me gesturing as I drive, moving my hand through the exponentially increasing graph of power and pleasure!
Roxy is a trick car with lots of great accessories. Next week, our custom build-out will be complete, and the Roxy will head to a new home in Vancouver, BC. Congratulations Karlo!
It’s very tempting to consider a supercharger Murphy! That car already has a lot of modifications that would nicely complement this kit.
Come for a drive in the videos below! First, one of our maiden voyages, with the nose off, and then a full blown street drive!
