A few weeks ago The Drive broke news of a Dakar race vehicle which finished a stage with only front tires, with the rears completely blown out. That vehicle, a Toyota Hilux Overdrive OTB, was driven by driver Antanas Juknevičius and co-driver Darius Vaiciulis and went on to finish 12th overall in the 2018 Dakar. The Hilux has recently popped up for sale.

According to a racecarsdirect listing, the Toyota Hilux Overdrive OTB is powered by a Lexus ISF 5.0 liter V-8 engine managed by a Pectel/Cosworth engine management system putting out 340 horsepower and the engine is mated to a SADEV 6 speed sequential gearbox.
