Bowler watches out: there is an Evoque to Dakar

Dakar Evoque

Is the women’s car now cool?

“Yes,” it seems to me a pretty safe answer. It must be weird to walk the rally version of a car just as groggy look like the standard model. Fender and Slides have been doing a lot of good, decent, and finally a normal size for functional rubber wheels makes it for me.

The team behind this wanted to Evoque to the 2012 Dakar Rally with this car. Hard fight against the Bowlers and of course especially Volkswagen .

Now this car is not entirely fair. Everything is “homemade” by Rabe Race Cars.  Up front is a BMW 3.0 six-cylinder  diesel (275pk/650Nm). Shifting is a 6-speed ZF racebak coupled to a 2-speed transfer case (high / low gear ring). A 260 liters tank provides sufficient coverage. It weighs 1900kg eventually. It has already looked better than the comparable accumulated Countryman last year.
