For 2016, the Peugeot 2008 DKR has been made wider, faster, lower and more powerful. Its new distinctive livery is to ensure that the Peugeot stands out in the desert.
The new dimensions have significantly altered weight distribution, for example, with spare wheels now stored in the sidepods of the car, which lowers the centre of gravity and improves handling.
The fresh skin has been designed around the new shape, accentuating both the flat panels and the curves that combine to make the Peugeot 2008 DKR16.
The 38th Dakar Rally gets underway in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on Saturday January 2, before concluding in Rosario on January 16.
