The Peugeot 2008 DKR16 is the beefed up and fully upgraded version of the vehicle that was last seen at the 2015 Dakar Rally. This vehicle is more aggressive, bigger and speedier, and is designed to bring the glory home at the 2016 Dakar Rally.

After the 2015 Dakar Rally, Peugeot Sport director Bruno Famin pointed out that "there is no lack of ideas when it comes to future development and a lot of work is already underway."

Clearly the company has lived up to that quote by putting together this 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 diesel engine-powered monster that enjoys power as high as 350 brake horsepower. Power output is directed purely to the rear wheels, with an improved suspension helping to handle the treacherous terrain.

The Peugeot 2008 DKR16 is definitely a vehicle designed to bring home the glory.
