Newsletter 620: The eighties

The eighties

The eighties
Probably the best era of motor sports that we can remember was the eighties. It was a time where life was put at stake in each stretch of road or circuit lap that the drivers took, while the mechanical devices reached the highest horsepower numbers ever known in competition, and all with a beauty that marked a turning point in the racing world. Danger, power and beauty... it was the 80s. :)

That danger, that power and that beauty were even greater in endurance competitions like the Paris-Dakar, where the pilots were authentic titans, pushing their bodies and their powerful, dangerous and beautiful machines to the limit in every kilometer they traveled.

DAB wants to pay tribute to a group of drivers and machines that were always in the shadows, the drivers of assistance trucks, enormous machines of great beauty that flew through the sand of dangerous deserts, with three new models that have been just announced.

And to welcome them, we offer you a special discounted price that is only valid until 23:59 (CET) next Friday, June 21st (in your local time). Don't hesitate and preorder your trucks at SpotModel now!!
