The maddest Dakar racers in the world
As Peugeot reveals the 2008 DKR, we look back on some of the wildest Dakar entries
Posted: 15 Apr 2014
Browsing a Mercedes showroom circa 1984, you'd be forgiven for choosing a G-wagon if you wanted to choose a Dakar mule. Jochen Mass and Albert Pfuhl didn't. They both entered fiendishly low-slung 4.5-litre V8 SLCs.
Needless to say, attempting to fit a square, SLC peg into a round, deserty hole didn't go well. Mass finished in 62nd place and Pfuhl managed 44th.
