Last time I saw a Nissan Qashqai, it was bumbling along at 45mph. But this is no ordinary Nissan Qashqai. It’s Severn Valley Motorsport’s Nissan Qashqai R.
Essentially, it’s a Nissan GT-R wearing a Qashqai body. But, again, it’s no ordinary GT-R powertrain. It’s a GT-R powertrain producing 1,100bhp. That’s more than a Bugatti Veyron.
SVM actually built the QashZilla a couple of years ago, reckoning on a top speed of over 200mph. But it took until now for them to find a long enough runway to find out exactly how far over.
The results are quite astonishing. With a v-max of 222mph, this school-run runabout is faster than anything Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren or Porsche currently sell.
