Post Nissan Qashai gets the Juke R treatment

Filed under: Aftermarket, Performance, Europe, Crossover, Nissan



It would appear that we're a little behind the times on this one, but a UK-based tuner of the Nissan GT-R is creating its own take on the lustworthy Juke-R starting with the Nissan Qashqai crossover. Severnvalley Motorsport claims to be the leading authority for tuning of the current GT-R in Europe. The outfit is now turning its attention to stuffing the drivetrain of a GT-R under the body of a Qashqai+2 - a seven-passenger compact crossover similar in size to our Nissan Rogue - resulting in the Qashqai-R.

The project started back in March when Severnvalley took delivery of a new Qashqai. After stripping the crossover down to its bare essentials and building a custom jig to support the body shell, it was then transferred onto an awaiting GT-R chassis. The crew aimed to keep Qashqai's appearance as stock as possible, but fender extensions and hood vents were required to accommodate the sports car underpinnings.

The white Qashqai-R seen above will be tuned to produce 900 horsepower, while a black version will get bumped up to 1,000 hp. And, looking at the build photos, we surmise that this project will take nothing less than a herculean feat of supercar determination before it's through.

We'll try to keep up with this build moving forward, but you can see the progress made so far in the gallery above (including what has to be the saddest picture on the Internet). Also, SVM has kept an up-to-date forum over at GTR.co.uk.Nissan Qashai gets the Juke R treatment originally appeared on Autoblog on Thu, 03 Oct 2013 15:45:00 EST.
