Tuned to flawlessness by Nissan’s legendary Takumi craftsmen team (four masters allowed to hand-build the Nissan GT-R engines), the Patrol’s 5.6-litre V8 engine results in 428hp and 560Nm of torque while exuding aggression and sportiness with an imposing presence.
The launch marks the latest chapter for Nissan’s performance brand which was premiered globally through a virtual event hosted at Expo 2020 Dubai. The new race-inspired version of the legendary Patrol combines striking exteriors with the refinement of a luxury car and the exhilarating performance of a sports car.
The exteriors allow for optimized aerodynamics and suspension, as well as achieving zero lift force. NISMO red line wrap covers the profile while the 22-inch, two-tone aluminum wheels sporting the NISMO logo add a distinctive aesthetic. It also features a new front fascia with a honeycomb three-dimensional mesh along with new front lamps and horizontal chrome lines embellished with the very obvious NISMO emblem. The rear features dark chrome inserts and new tail lamps along with the Nissan Formula 1 car-inspired LED fog light.
The Patrol’s tuned suspension features Bilstein shock absorbers, which provide a sportier and improved handling. While the exterior of the Patrol NISMO boasts confidence, the interiors exude pure luxury and NISMO’s racing pedigree in equal measure. Spacious front seats help drivers become one with their car, while the premium quality and crafted quilting continues the NISMO’s narrative in bringing performance and luxury to its owners. Alcantara fabric with side leather, the upholstery of choice for racing cars, is one of the latest design modifications to the NISMO to add to the plushness of the interiors.
The black Alcantara steering wheel also takes its inspiration from racing cars, with red carbon fiber inserts to provide a sporty and dynamic feel, while the headrests are also embossed with the signature NISMO logo. The refreshed centre console and dashboard adds to the signature NISMO interior, allowing drivers to make informed decisions in real time.
This mammoth super-SUV will be available in four exterior colors – namely White Pearl, Black Solid, and Grey and Silver, exclusive to customers in the MENA region. Time to finally immigrate to Dubai?
