Considered by many to be one of the toughest races in the world, the Dakar Rally will be setting up camp at the 2024 edition of Rétromobile! For the occasion, the Pont des Expositions at the world's most exciting pop-up garage will host an unprecedented exhibit dedicated to this monument of motor sport competition.

Some competitions change the face of motor sport forever. The Dakar Rally is undeniably one of them. Every year since 1978, this legendary contest has laid on a race covering several thousand kilometres, where driver and machine become one in the face of adversity.

In 2024, Rétromobile is paying tribute to the Dakar Rally with a unique display of the competition's leading cars and motorbikes. For the occasion, and with the support of ASO (Amaury Sport Organisation - organiser of the Dakar Rally), the Mecca of vintage vehicles will play host to some of the cars and bikes that left their mark on the history of the Dakar Rally: Cyril Neveu's Yamaha XT500, the Marreau brothers' Renault 4L, a Porsche 959 specially adapted for the competition, and the Nissan X-Trail driven by Johnny Hallyday and René Metge in the 2002 race.
