Nissan Qashqai GT-R Underway

If you liked the Nissan Juke-R, just wait until Severn Valley Motorsport is done converting this Qashqai.
When Nissan UK slotted the GT-R’s powertrain into a Juke to create the bonkers Juke-R, you might have thought you’d end up with a more spacious, accommodating form to go with Godzilla’s engine. But despite the Juke being a crossover and the GT-R a mere coupe, the former is as small as they come and the latter is actually the bigger of the two. So we’re left with the same question: what do you do if you want the GT-R’s power but with more room? Severn Valley Motorsport may have the answer.

The tuner responsible for the 218mph, 1,250hp GT-R called The Hulk has taken possession of a 2012 GT-R and a Qashqai with the apparent aim of melding the two into one. The Qashqai, for those unfamiliar, is a crossover which Nissan builds in the UK (among other locations) that’s bigger than the Juke. It’s available in five- or seven-seat capacities and with gasoline and diesel engines ranging up to two liters. The GT-R’s engine, though, ought to blow it right out of the water.
