Paris-Dakar ...and back

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - News -

An iconic diesel en­gined Paris-Dakar racer has been re­stored from a rust­ing wreck back into a rac­ing car, ex­actly 30 years since it was last seen in pub­lic. The 4x4 Pa­trol was dis­cov­ered in a Span­ish mu­seum in 2014, and has been re­built by Nis­san en­gi­neers as a pas­sion project – at evenings and week­ends. Tech­ni­cians work­ing for Nis­san chanced upon images of the car on an in­ter­net fo­rum and con­vinced the man­u­fac­turer to buy it back.

Fanta any­one? The Pa­trol in its el­e­ment.
