Designed by ex Jaguar Design Director Ian Callum and developed by Prodrive, the BRX T1 is certainly not your typical desert rally car. The silhouette evokes a similar feel to the F-TYPE while taking it to the extreme in every direction to ensure a Dakar-ready machine that can tackle the race's challenging terrain. Racing in the T1 class, the heavy-duty off-roader will be powered by a Ford 3.5L twin-turbo V6 that produces 400 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque, which is also accompanied by a six-speed sequential transmission. The body is constructed out of a mix of steel and carbon fiber, keeping it both light and strong, which is a delicate recipe you need to get right for a course like Dakar. 

The 2021 Dakar Rally begins next January.
