Dakar Toyota Landcruiser FIA T2Advert ID: 42923 POA
Dakar Press and Service Car
4.3L Diesel 6 Cylinder 204 Bhp / 430Nm
This most versatile of all the Landcruisers was initially prepared by Albert Vanierschot as a press car for Koen Wauters and the Paris-Dakar rally.
Later the car was acquired by Eurotech of The Netherlands to be used as the service car for their participation in the 2007 edition that was cancelled last minute due to unrest in Africa.
Like most teams Eurotech then entered the 2008 Trans Orientale Rally from St. Petersburg to Bejing.
Since then the car was used for an overland journey to South Africa, led a sheltered life and was only used for some local journeys.
In 2018 the car received a new engine that was installed by specialists All American Imports of The Netherlands.
The car is fully equipped to tackle any overland journey or off road rally. By the same token the car handles excellently on tarmac and is extremely agile and versatile.
The current “Overland” type rear interior could be easily replaced by the 2 original rear seats that are supplied with the car.
