Peugeot 2008 DKR Rally Car

Dec 4, 2019

Peugeot has been MIA from the Dakar Rally for well over two decades, but the brand looks to break that dry spell for 2015. Teaming up with both Red Bull Motorsports and Total, Peugeot has unveiled their 2008 DKR.

As the name would imply, the menacing vehicle is based on the 2008. Of course a standard 2008 wouldn’t get the job done at Dakar, which is why the French auto maker added meaty 37-inch off-road Michelin tires, a much taller stance, a large rear wing, and so much more more to the mix. As you can see, the two doors from the back have also been removed. At this point in time, we don’t know what kind of powerplant this rally car will be equipped with, but we imagine Peugeot won’t let us down. Regardless, the aesthetics of this black buggy alone are enough to give the competition nightmares. Expect the vehicle to compete in January 2015.
