2017 Peugeot 3008 DKR
Offered by RM Sotheby’s | Munich, Germany | November 25, 2023
Peugeot‘s 3008 road model is a compact SUV. And it looks nothing like this. I think, for this rally raid race car, they carried over the headlights and grille shape. And that’s about it. But hey, it gives everyone who drives a 3008 the feeling that their front-wheel-drive hatchback wagon could go anywhere if they slapped some Red Bull graphics on it.
Peugeot entered five of these in the 2017 Dakar Rally. It’s powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel V6 that makes 340 horsepower. So it can pretty go much anywhere, and fast. The competition history for this chassis, C22, includes:
- 2017 Dakar Rally – 3rd (with Cyril Despres and David Castera)
- 2019 Dakar Rally – 3rd (with Sebastien Loeb and Daniel Elena)
- 2022 Dakar Rally – 42nd (with Khalid Al Qassmi and Dirk von Zitzewitz)
After its last outing it was rebuilt and should be instantly usable. It has an estimate of $370,000-$700,000 – a range that says “we have no idea what this is worth.” Click here for more info.
