Evoque for Dakar

The British Excite Rally Raid Team will race three cars in the next running of the Dakar Rally, commissioned by RaBe Race Cars and the T3 race car’s body shell is that of the brand-new Range Rover Evoque.

Under the hood, however, the T3 racers will make use of BMW straight-six power. The 3.0-liter turbo-diesel engine is good for 275 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque”.

Mike Jones of RaBe Race Cars commented: “We have years of off-road motorsport experience at every level, from club to international works teams. The last 15 years have been devoted to Desert raging and achieving top honors at Dakar. It is little known, but we have built cars for many other teams who race under their own colors and logos.”

    I saw the 3 door and 5 door models at last weekends Goodwood Breakfast meets, and to be completely honest I was dead impressed. The Evqoue still retains all the marques of what Range Rover stands for but introduces new aspects of a modern car reducing CO2’s and increasing MPGs. I have certainly seen a good few out on the roads now after a short time from launch and I have to say they do stand out and look very good amongst other cars. Well done Land Rover!
