Nissan Qashqai-R SUV project in the Works

Builders want to make the fastest seven-seat SUV around

I think one of the coolest things Nissan ever did was build the Juke R. That project to the normal four-cylinder powertrain out of a Nissan Juke in crammed in the all-wheel-drive platform from the Nissan GT-R. A similar project is now underway transplanting that GT-R powertrain into another Nissan SUV.

The project is called "MAD" Project SVM Qashqai-R . The powertrain will come from a 2012 Nissan GT-R the people behind the project want to build the ultimate seven-seat SUV.

The builders planned to produce two vehicles with one clad in white paint producing 900 hp and one with black paint producing 1000 hp. Builders plan to keep everyone updated on progress as the project comes together.

LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. — Why is this machine not called the Electric Soul? Seriously, picture this: “So, what kind of car do you drive?” “I’ve got an Electric Soul, baby. And check out my sweet platform shoes. Those are real goldfish.” However, “Soul EV” it is. Walk away, not today, disco lady. This smurftastic little tyke is not Kia’s first entry into the electric car market, something the company’s been toying with domestically for decades, but it is the f ...
