After the buggy the Qatar Red Bull Team or buggy Laurent Fouquet, today is the turn of a particular prototype and Spanish origin. The Smart Team Feber used in a single-seater buggy Dakar 2013 with the appearance of the supermini Smart Fortwo.
And I say that in this aspect buggy, called Smart Buggy 4 × 4, the outer carrecería is all we can associate with the Smart. The buggy, developed according to the new FIA rules for light vehicles AWD, will be the main virtue of their lightness, only 750 kilograms. Fast, agile and light are the adjectives that put their creators.
Although the initial objective of the team was put on track two units, finally, due to budgetary constraints, only be a 4 × 4 Smart Buggy present at the output of Lima. Jose Luis Alvarez Alarcon will be the pilot in charge of achieving the goal of reaching Santiago de Chile. JL was the first Spanish who finished the Dakar on a quad and load in his backpack and the experience of nine editions of the toughest test of the planet.
