New this year were some of the Paris-Dakar entrants. This DAF Turbo Twin is from 1987 - powered by TWO 11.6 litre turbo 6 cylinder engines.
You could almost walk under these massive machines. They towered above every other entrant on the hill, horns blazing!
Looking inside the trucks shows that they are virtually empty, with the body work just an empty shell. Spare wheels and much more equipment could probably be found in the back on the actual event.
Looking inside a smaller Nissan Paris-Dakar vehicle shows just how much electronics is involved in the technology of the vehicle and navigation on the huge event.
Believe it or not this is a Paris-Dakar car based on an MG Metro 6R4. 1986 3 litre V6 four wheel drive, based on the Group B rally car.
Just like Granny's shopping car!!

Compare the above to this later rudimentary diffuser and undertray on a slightly later car, and the hand-cut slicks.
