The twin engine Hoggar Dune Buggy concept from Peugeot was among the highlights at this month's Frankfurt International motor show. Recently featured in Gizmo 6, the low-slung, 2-seater unusual uses of two HDi engines - one at the front, and the other at the rear - to achieve the attributes of a four-wheel drive.

Fitted with environmentally friendly particulate filters, the two engines in tandem develop power of around 266kW, with a phenomenal torque of 800 Nm.
