The “Kouros/Auriol” buggy is mythical vehicle of the Paris-Dakar. These unique prototypes were single-seater tubular chassis with big suspension travel.

After nine participations and two victories on his motorbike, Hubert Auriol broke his two ankles during the 1987 Dakar Rallye. He declares in an incredible TV moment: "I stop racing motorbikes".

Then, he decided to set up a team and build two buggies for next year Dakar.
The second one will be for Xavier LAPEYRE : thirteen participations in the “24h du Mans”, then official Audi pilot on the Paris-Dakar.
