Three weeks after the exciting news that Peugeot, Red Bull and Total have decided to join forces to contest the 2015 Dakar, the car that will spearhead the team’s challenge has finally broken cover.

The 2008 DKR shares an unmistakable family resemblance with Peugeot’s road-going crossover, albeit with more muscular forms and more imposing overall proportions that have been honed to meet the challenge that lays ahead.

What lies beneath the bodywork remains a secret for the moment, but the 2008 DKR’s forms are sure to cause a stir even before the new car starts to kick up dust as it begins to be put through its paces.

Peugeot has also revealed that two-time WRC champion Carlos Sainz and five-time Dakar motorcycle class winner Cyril Despres will defend the colours of the team on next January’s Dakar.
