Sébastien Loeb is set to pilot the insane Prodrive BRX Hunter on the Dakar rally, a three week-long 6,200-mile adventure across deserts, dunes, mountains and rocks. This truck is 4WD and powered by Ford’s twin-turbocharged 3.5L V6 Ecoboost generating 400 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque. What really stands out are the intakes on the flanks because that’s where the spare wheels are stored, with room for a third under the bodywork out back.
To keep the driver safe, its chassis is made from a high strength steel tubular structure covered in carbon fiber body panels, measuring 177 inches in length and 78 inches in width. If placed next to a Lamborghini Huracan EVO, it would be slightly larger and taller. However, it’s much heavier than the average supercar with a dry weight of 4,079 pounds, but considering how strenuous and dangerous the Dakar Rally is, all those reinforcements are a must have.

The car is very compact, so that makes it quite agile, nice to drive, more difficult to make some mechanic [changes] because everything is really compact, but we need a strong car that does not break and we are working on it. I’m quite confident we will do something quite good. For sure we had some problems, but that’s normal. We could break the gearbox, the engine, different things, but it didn’t happen,” said Loeb to Motorsport.com.
