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.

Reader Review: Comparing the new Nissan Micra to the 1980s one

Aug 26 2014 8:29am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Mark Radford is a self-proclaimed “giant man,” so when he drove the Nissan Micra when it first came to Canada in the 1980s, he got a lot of slack for it. He didn’t care, though. He drove the reliable but bare bones Micra for more than 10 years before it finally went kaput. The Micra was his first car, and it got him through college, his first job and he even met a girl with it and ended up marrying her. Nearly 20-something years later, Mark is all grown up — he has ...
