The thoroughbred racer gets design features that link it with Peugeot’s five-door SUV, but underneath it uses a purpose-built spaceframe chassis designed specifically for the challenges of high-speed desert driving.
The body is made from cabonfibre composite and hides the car’s double wishbone suspension with coil springs and twin dampers.
The rear-wheel-drive car uses a 3.0-litre V6 twin-turbo diesel engine, producing 340bhp and 590lb ft of torque. Drive is sent through a six-speed sequential gearbox, while braking is handled by 355mm ventilated discs.
The car is geared to attack sand dunes but it is still capable of 124mph.
The 3008 DKR is a successor to the 2016 Dakar Rally-winning 2008 DKR.
