After their extraordinary adventure in 2013, which saw them smash the record for the celebrated Pikes Peak Hill Climb, Peugeot Sport, Red Bull and Total have again joined forces for another exacting yet equally exciting challenge: the Dakar. To take on the 10,000km of the world's longest and toughest cross-country rally 25 years after Peugeot last contested the event, the team has recruited Carlos Sainz and Cyril Despres.

The 2008 DKR: the latest Lion with a voracious appetite for the challenges that await it!

The muscular, thoroughbred yet beastlike forms of the Peugeot 2008 DKR provide a vivid indication of the new car's serious desire for success. It is behind the wheel of this purpose-designed machine that Carlos Sainz and Cyril Despres will defend the colours of Team Peugeot Total on next January's Dakar.

Update!

Peugeot’s 2008 DKR
http://www.carscoops.com/2014/04/peugeots-2008-dkr-is-awesome-looking.html
For the moment, Peugeot remains silent about the powertrain and doesn’t say whether the car is rear-wheel drive of front-wheel drive. However, given that Red Bull is a major partner of Team Peugeot Total and that the energy drink giant’s team entered two rear-wheel drive, petrol-powered buggies at the 2014 Dakar (one of them driven by Carlos Sainz), it won’t be a surprise if the 2008 DKR features a similar setup. If that is the case, why not recycle the 875hp engine from the 208 T16 Pikes Peak?




:whoa:

Since the 2015 Dakar, Team Peugeot Total has continued to work on the development of technical evolutions for the PEUGEOT 2008 DKR at the same time as a busy testing schedule. This ongoing programme will now also include a participation in this summer’s China Grand Rally (CGR).
