Peugeot 2008 DKR
Unfortunately Peugeot's return to the Dakar rally this year wasn't quite the history book-rewriting affair of which the French firm had dreamed.
But as Pug has a whole year to wait until having another crack at the Dakar, it may as well ship its 2008 racer off to the snowy US for more development work.
After all, with all the power from the mid-mounted 340bhp, V6 twin-turbodiesel engine going to the rear wheels, plus boulder-munching levels of suspension travel and trench-like tread in the tyres, the 2008 DKR should be a hell of a lot of fun, too.
