But I'm not here to discuss high-performance opportunities for Nissan's cool-looking truck. I just want to show you yet another Nismo-like proposal. This time around sporting the iconic "GT-R" badge, and a single-cab layout.
Yup, this truck is not an off-road-ready monster aimed at Ford Raptor and Ram TRX haulers. It's a street-spec machine that would feel at home on the Nurburgring. Not only shorter than the current Navara thanks to its single-cab layout, but it also packs quite a few aero features inspired by the Nissan GT-R supercar.
I'm talking about the gaping mouth in the front bumper, the splitter mounted below, and the muscular side skirts attached under the doors. It also sports beefy rear fenders, sports wheels wrapped in low-profile tires, and a supercar-like ride height. This thing looks like it would set a Nurburgring record for pickup trucks without breaking a sweat.
Of course, the "GT-R" badges on the rear fenders most likely mean that there's a Nismo-built powerplant behind the front grille. Yes, I know the GT-R is 13 years old as of 2022 and on its way out, but its twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 remains a marvel of technology. And at 565 horsepower and 467 pound-feet (633 Nm) of torque, it's quite potent too.
In fact, a truck like this would definitely deserve the VR38DETT in the GT-R Nismo, which comes in at a whopping 600 horsepower and 481 pound-feet (652 Nm) of twist. I don't know about you, but this rendering makes me want to scream, "shut up and take my money!" from the top of my lungs. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to find (and smash) my piggybank.
