Peugeot 2008 DKR
This is based on a Peugeot 2008, in the same way Top Gear's dress sense is based on the Milan fashion week. In other words, not at all.
No, Peugeot has entrusted those sensible types at Peugeot Sport - the same people who built Loeb's 208 T16 - to build a Dakar entry for 2015. And it looks positively mad. A good mad.
It's a rear-wheel-drive monster that will be driven by Carlos Sainz and Cyril Despres in the hope of gaining outright victory at next year's race, and we give much respect to any man named Cyril who drives a Peugeot.
