The V8s of Dakar 2016

The V8s of Dakar 2016

by January 20, 2016

The Dakar headlines were the dominance of the Peugeot team and the sensational 12th win for Stephane Peterhansel aboard the super-diesel 2008 DKR.

Further down the field, however, there are all sorts of gems including, as it turns out, a plethora of different screaming V8s.

Toyota, Nissan, Mercedes, Ford and GM are all represented like its some off-road NASCAR/V8 Supercars event. What’s interesting is the different sounds each of these bent-eight brawlers emits. 

They’re tough, too, as they have to spend more than two weeks being beaten senseless every single day. Makes us want to take up off-road racing.
