For Day 24, a decidedly non racing vehicle has been offered, a Tatra 815 Africabus, a tour bus that in the Dakar was used as a journalist/photographer transport. I have seen these trucks in numerous background pictures of the bivouac and at special locations, but I am not too familiar with the specifics of the truck, I did find out that the nickname of this truck was Dachshund.
The model is on 2 sheets, one with the instructions and some parts, and one with just parts.

From the 1990 Dakar, and for Day 22, we have the Peugeot 405 T16 GR, Grande Raid. #203 was driven by Ari Vatanen, and won 7 stages that year, and the overall classification. The 405 was also used to compete on Pikes Peak, and set records during the 2 years it competed, if you want to see the 405 in action on the mountain, check out Climb Dance, it is 5 minutes of driving artistry.
The model is a one pager, and has both versions you have come to love, easy and complex.
