Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Peugeot DKR 1st Dakar 2016 #302 Peterhansel Alternative version SPK4877 Sainz SPK4878 Loeb SPK4950 Desprez & SPK4949 test Although still called the 2008 DKR, the 2016 factory Peugeot for the Dakar was a significantly changed machine from the previous year. The most obvious change externally is the mounting of the spare wheels in the side of the vehicle, but there is much more. The overall shape of the car is very crisply modelled and the Red Bull livery is neatly applied with a deep gloss blue paint finish and the remaining colours as decals with chrome foil on the roof and there are various neat details including sand ladders stowed in the tail. The team cars were all near identical with the main difference being the colour of the cabin air intake on the roof, Peterhansel’s winning car seen here sporting yellow.
Very well finished mass produced resin built models. Ever improving detailing now incorporating more use of photoetched details for added finesse and with excellent paint finishes. Made in China
