Ever since its inception in the 1950s, the Patrol has been the pride and joy of Nissan’s extended SUV lineup, a 4×4 that has made a name for itself as rugged and capable off-road vehicle.
One characteristic you would never think of associating with a Patrol is sportiness, but we’re willing to take a chance and say that the following tuned version that comes to us from Bulgaria will likely make you change your mind.
Not much is known about the builder or how it came to be, but the author of the videos tells us that the fourth generation Patrol (codenamed Y60 and built between 1987 and 1997) had an engine transplant from a Nissan Skyline (probably the R33).
We’re also not aware if the RB25DET engine is stock or not, but data shows that the 2.5-liter turbocharged straight-six produced from 245hp to 276hp (280PS), depending on the version. What we do know is that it sounds absolutely bananas, especially when contrasted to the utilitarian looks of the Patrol SUV.
