    I really liked the old VW Touaregs. They were fast and tough.

    The Hummbuggy on a revised diet with a version of the 2.8L Duramax Diesel found in the Colorado/Canyon trucks or the 4.5L Duramax V8 if GM ever puts it into production!!!

    Body work could be Colorado ZR2!!!

    I'll pick one of the Kamaz, i'm sure driving those things are freaking awesome and sketchy.

    They built the car that Peter Hajas drove as Dakar Challenge winner in 2013 but I haven’t seen anything Dakar-related from them since.

    For this years race with all the dunes and open "piste" I think the Humbuggy would be a pretty cool ride. It may not win, but it would be fun to drive.
