Loprais Dakar Team

Praga joined forces with Loprais family to build the ultimate Dakar Truck

01

Anyone who’s been following truck racing at Dakar in the past decades probably knows the name Loprais by heart. Karel Loprais became a Dakar legend in 1980s and 1990s. He won the famous endurance rally six times, gaining a nickname “Monsieur Dakar” among his colleagues and competitors.

02

He passed down his passion for desert racing to his nephew, Aleš Loprais, who became one of the top drivers in today’s Dakar and Silk Way endurance rallies. He scored pole positions in both and won the Silk Way Rally in 2011. The connection of the most successful Czech Dakar family and technological expertise of Praga gave birth to the Praga V4S DKR.

Aleš Loprais is currently preparing for the 2021 Dakar Rally, which will take place in Saudi Arabia. It will be his 14th Dakar. It will also be his second rally with the Praga V4S DKR, a truck that’s been designed, built and fine-tuned using the Loprais team’s deep knowledge of the endurance rallying. Four decades of experience with the toughest racing materialized in a truck that is poised to start a new chapter in the history of the Loprais Dakar legend.

Made to be Tough and Fast

Technical specifications

01

Fast yet durable

The cross-country rally truck has to cover hundreds of kilometres a day in unforgiving conditions such as torrid deserts, treacherous dune fields, rocky mountain passes or vegetation-covered savannahs - and it has to it all at an incredible pace.

02

Agility for the rough road

The time-proven concept of an off-road truck with independent suspension meets racecar technology. Precision-tuned chassis and well-balanced weight distribution contribute to great handling and stability, while retaining its off-road capabilities.

03

Unstoppable power

The combination of optimised engine power output and automatic transmission help when driving over the hardest obstacles, and allow for more speed in difficult passes. They also reduce wear and increase the lifespan of many other components.

04

Early successes, promise of the future

Right from the start, the Praga V4S DKR confirmed its qualities. During its premiere at Rally Dakar 2020, it fought for podium positions in individual legs. Now, it’s ready to go even further and challenge for the top places in the overall classification.

Winning Races Across the World

Crossing deserts, jumping dunes and storming the rough roads. The Praga V4S DKR is built to go fast where others can’t go at all.
