Dacia Duster Ice Wants Trophee Andros
Dacia models have never been known for the appetite they have for racing. Renault, Dacia's mother company, is planning to change that with the help of the Ice version of the Duster and driver Alain Prost. The car is pretty much the same as the one used by Prost last year, but not quite.
The car has been modified for better performance and, according to its driver, is now in tip-top shape to take the Andros (last year, the Duster secured second place overall in the series).
"The work that has been done on Duster Ice since last year has paid dividends and we are convinced we have a competitive car for this year's competition,” said Prost.
The Duster Ice is powered by perhaps the greatest engine a Dacia will ever see: a 3.0l V6 which spits out 350 hp. The engine is controlled with the help of a six-speed sequential gearbox. But, of course, that's not all the attributes which set this Duster apart from its production version peers.
The Ice uses a four-wheel steering system, limited slip differentials, double-wishbone suspension and long-travel dampers and electro-hydraulic steering system.
This model is not for sale. Sorry.
