In the best tradition of Peugeot's previous Dakar challengers, the 2008 DKR carries the name of a much humbler production model. That's about where the similarities with Peugeot's Juke-sized production crossover ends though, as the car's final specification reveals. Where the road car uses a range of compact gasoline and diesel four-cylinders to drive the front wheels, the DKR slots a 3.0-liter V-6 bi-turbo diesel behind the driver. Producing 340 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque, the mid-mounted unit then drives the rear-wheels, an unusual departure from the all-wheel drive Dakar norm.
