Setting it apart is its remarkable ground clearance, towering 50 millimeters higher than a standard 911 Carrera equipped with sports suspension. Moreover, its lift system can raise the ride height by an additional 30 mm, enabling it to navigate challenging terrain with ease while maintaining its agility. The car’s lightweight construction, featuring carbon-fiber components and reinforced steel elements, ensures a trim weight of 1,605 kg, enhancing performance and efficiency.

Fitted with specially crafted Pirelli Scorpion All Terrain Plus tires, boasting a chunky tread pattern and reinforced sidewalls, the 911 Dakar delivers exceptional traction on various surfaces, from rugged trails to smooth asphalt. Powering this beast is a potent 3.0-liter biturbo six-cylinder engine, churning out an impressive 480 horsepower and propelling the car from zero to 100 km/h in a blistering 3.4 seconds.
