We have some more rumors for you today, this time involving the low-cost brand Dacia, which according to the French at Leblogauto, has received an order for a 850HP Dacia Duster from Jean Philippe Dayraut who wants to be among the participants at this year’s Pikes Peak challenge.
Jean Philippe Dayraut is a 41 years olf French driver who will pilot a BMW in this year’s Throphee Andros, competing against Alain Prost who as you might know, will be at the wheel of a Dacia Duster Ice.
Dayraut has approached Tork Engineering and Renault, the company’s behind the Duster Ice, and discussed the development of a 850 HP Duster which should weight only 900 Kg and would extract power from a competition derived Nissan GT-R V8 engine.
If the 850HP Dacia Duster will indeed become reality, then the 2011 Hill Climp at Pikes Peak will be even more interesting.
