Peugeot returns to Dakar in 2015


After smashing the Pikes Peak Hill Climb record in 2013 with the 208 T16 hill climb car, Peugeot Sport, Red Bull and Total have again joined forces for another challenge: the 2015 Dakar Rally.

To take on the 10,000km rally, Team Peugeot Total has recruited Carlos Sainz and Cyril Despres who will drive its new rally car, the 2008 DKR.

Team Team Peugeot Total says 2010 Dakar victor Carlos Sainz, brings extensive experience and car-development skills to the table, as well as the event’s five-time winner on two wheels, Cyril Despres, who has chosen Peugeot to kick off a new career on four wheels.

The 2008 DKR rally car was built by the same team who developed the 208 T16 Pikes Peak hill climb car. More information about the car will be revealed at the Beijing Motor Show on April 20.
