Ladies and gentlemen, feast your eyes on this : the Peugeot 2008 DKR. It's the car the French manufacturer will be using next year to try and reclaim the Dakar title, a feat they haven't attempted since their four back-to-back wins between 1987 and 1990. Some blokes called Desprès, Sainz and Peterhansel shall be driving it. I hear they're quite good.
This is all the pictures of the car we have at the moment, but it's enough to see that the 2008 DKR bears more than a passing ressemblance to the highly successful 205 T16 Grand Raid that won in 1987, 1988 and 1989. It also sports a temporary livery, it'll probably be painted like the 208 T16 Pikes Peak eventually. No word on powertrain and layout either, but all that should be cleared when Peugeot officially reveals the car tomorrow.
