Is This 800 HP Nissan Patrol The Ultimate Sleeper?

A wolf in sheep’s clothing, a sleeper, a Q-car: no matter what you call it, this off-roader takes it to a whole new level.

Amazingly, this isn’t the hardest, baddest, maddest Nissan Patrol of the lot.

Many hardcore tuned variants are still making waves in the Middle East, and a few that were modified to run on kerosene, boasting north of 1200 hp.

Still, this Qatari-owned, 800 HP Patrol is a force to be reckoned with as it was built to win drag races against Lamborghinis.

Τhe TB48 engine pushes the car forward like it’s a lightened circuit racer, and that’s with the massive Garett GT48 turbo on low boost. If you want to go all guns blazing, the engine ECU switches from “daily use” to “hang-on-to-your-pants” mode, pumping the horsepower figure beyond the 800 HP mark.
