1986 Dakar Rally also known as the 1986 Paris–Dakar Rally was the 8th running of the Dakar Rally event. René Metge and Dominique Lemoyne won the car class for the second time, using a Porsche 959; Cyril Neveu won the motorcycle class on a Honda NXR750V, while Giacomo Vismara and Giulio Minelli used a Mercedes-Benz to win the truck class.

The event was overshadowed by the death of the event organiser, Thierry Sabine, and four others, including French singer Daniel Balavoine, in a helicopter crash.[1]
