If you did watch it and caught the last episode of the Boys’ show then you saw how the Porsche 918 was decimated by a Nissan Patrol. Richard Hammond was smugly confident that the hybrid hypercar was more than capable of beating a Nissan sport utility vehicle from a decade ago. But little did he know that the Patrol was a wolf in sheep’s clothing. In this case, a Nissan GT-R in a Nissan Patrol clothing.

The Patrol’s hood alone should give you a clue as to what lies beneath. It has been molded to reflect the GT-R‘s twin hood bulge and functional hood intake vents. Lift it up and you find Godzilla’s heart, the VR38DETT that has been stroked to 4.1 liters and pushing out a massive 1,900 horsepower. Open the doors and step inside, you find the entire GT-R’s interior has been transplanted as well. In fact, the entire drivetrain and suspension components has been brought over from the GT-R. 1320 Video just put out a detailed look into this ridiculous sleeper, and it shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that it was capable of beating the Porsche 918 so handily.
