By CARSIFU | 7 August 2019

HANOI: Peugeot created a one-off adventure concept of its 3008 sport utility vehicle (SUV) which managed to successfully tackle the northern section of the iconic Ho Chi Minh trail in Vietnam.

Based on the 1.6-litre PureTech GT Line model, this 3008 has been fitted with 17-inch steel wheels wrapped by Cooper AT3 off-road tyres.

Beneath it, there's underbody protection which includes a front skid plate,

A powerful LED bar with plenty of lumens provides all the necessary illumination when the sun goes down and is installed at the front of the Rival aluminium roof rack with a fully retractable ARB Simpson roof tent for 3008's occupants to rest their weary heads.

The one-off model is then finished in a unique wrap and fitted with a bicycle rack with a Peugeot trail bike for some two-wheeled adventures.

“This one-off model exemplifies the practicality and off-road ability of our best-selling SUV. With relatively minor modifications, the 3008 has tackled some tough terrain, proving the effectiveness of its Advanced Grip Control technology and demonstrating its true outdoor potential,” said Peugeot UK managing director David Peel.
