Nissan Navara-R Is a Pickup Truck With the Heart of a GT-R

Nissan is an automaker that has made a wide variety of cars, from practical work trucks like the Nissan Frontier to extremely powerful sports cars like the Nissan GT-R. As a result, Nissan has quite a few fans, and like any other fans, some Nissan fans have begun modifying their cars to get more from them. And in one Nissan owner’s case, he thought it would be a great idea to mix the GT-R with the Nissan Navara to create the Navara-R.

According to Motor Authority, the creator of the Navara-R was a British racer, Steve “Baggsy” Biagioni. The idea was simple: to put the engine of a GT-R into a Navara pickup truck. That said, the GT-R, nicknamed Godzilla, was as mighty as its nickname, with a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V6 that only generated about 565 hp.
