Watch the formidable PEUGEOT 2008 DKR16 change up through the gears ahead of another Dakar assault.
"There isn’t one big change that we have made on our car: instead it has been a series of small evolutions in different areas, which together we hope will amount to an overall improvement."
– Peugeot Sport Director Bruno Famin

Updated version of the two-wheel drive Peugeot beast has been revealed! It is longer, wider, lower and more powerful than its predecessor! The PEUGEOT 2008DKR16 also benefits from improved aerodynamics: the bonnet and roof-mounted air-intake have been heavily revised, in order to provide more balanced down-force between front and rear.
Despite the air restrictor, the 3.0-litre V6 twin-turbo diesel engine now has more power. The drive-ability of the engine is increased too, which will be particularly useful during twisty stages.
