That looks like an SAE baja buggy (google that). They are made by collage teams with around 14hp engines and a CVT. I want one too , hoping to build a similar sized buggy soon. Getting build dimensions is kind of hard though (its a competition, so they don't want to leak information) so you will likely be designing your own from the pictures.
