Dakar Kit Car
The Dakar is a kit car based on a Range Rover as the donor vehicle. It is a specially designed fibre glass (GRP) body designed for fitting to a Range Rover chassis. It does not involve cutting the Range Rover chassis down as it uses the standard 100 inch wheelbase. It also uses the existing bulkhead, floor, interior etc. The rusty bits of the floor can be replaced when the old body is removed. I believe the roof rack on the Dakar photographed below was custom made by the Owner.
This is the type of vehicle used by Anneka Rice in the Challenge Anneka tv programme when her Volkswagen Beetle based beech buggy kept on breaking down. It is designed as a road going vehicle
that performs better than a standard Range Rover when off-road. Turning my Range Rover into a Dakar would be a good idea except I think it looks ugly.
This is a Dakar body, but not a Range Rover chassis.
