Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Peugeot DKR Dakar 2016 #321 Despres Alternative versions SPK4876 Peterhansel 1st SPK4877 Sainz SPK4878 Loeb & 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. Of the two options offered here, Sainz won several stages and was leading the event when his engine and gearbox decided to part company while Cyril Despres, a multiple Dakar winner on two wheels, finished seventh overall.
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
