For its 15th season, Peugeot Avenue Paris is hosting a new special event dedicated to the Dakar 2018 rally. It is open until March 2018. Visitors can admire the Peugeot 205 T16 and the new Peugeot 3008DKR Maxi. The latest racing machine by Peugeot Sport will be taking part in the Dakar 2018 rally. The event will take place between 6 and 20 January next.
One of the central exhibits is the new 3008DKR Maxi. It is the successor to the 3008DKR, which claimed the first three places in the Dakar 2017 event. The new vehicle is heavier and more powerful. It will pursue the ambitions of Peugeot Sport on the tracks of the world’s most difficult rally raid next January.

To enjoy the full Dakar 2018 experience, visitors are encouraged to sit in a dynamic armchair. Wearing a virtual reality headset, they can experience the thrills of the Dakar event as Sébastien Loeb’s co-pilot. Loeb is one of the four pilots who will be electrifying enthusiasts throughout the rally. The other three are Stéphane Peterhansel, Carlos Sainz and Cyril Despres.
All temporary co-pilots will be able to take away a souvenir of their visit to Peugeot Avenue Paris. That will be possible by printing a photo in the colours of the 3008DKR Maxi. This way they will be able to immortalise and share the special moment.
