With the start of the holy month of Ramadan and during ArabGT chat video, we told you that today, Sunday, will witness the beginning of the second season of Special Car program, presented to you by Suhaib Shashaa. and the star of the first episode will be this Nissan Patrol.
As you know, Nissan Patrol is an excellent family car, but the star of today’s episode is extraordinary with a power of 700hp!
Of course, this episode was filmed before the National Disinfection Programme in the United Arab Emirates, and before the lockdowns and other procedures taken to stop the outbreak of the Coronavirus, may God protect us all! So we managed to film the episode of today in the Dubai Autodrome.
Watch today’s episode of Special Car:
As most of you know, the Nissan Patrol comes with a naturally aspirated 5.6-liter V8 engine. That generates 400 hp, but today we are test-driving a Nissan Patrol that generates 700 horsepower, and with this huge increase in power, it was necessary that the car get high-performance brakes to provide the best possible traction.
At the beginning of today’s episode, Suhaib tested one of Mopar products, the Hygiene Air System.
This modified Patrol did not get any exterior modifications, only the front and rear bumpers were shortened to be more suitable for off-roading. The car was also equipped with lightweight 20-inch RAYS rims.
The strength of this modified car increased after adding a 2.9-liter Whipple supercharger. The Patrol got modified pistons and rods, but the crankshaft was not modified. The car got a modified Exhaust from the Kuwaiti Company Bullet, in addition to that, it was equipped with a methanol kit, and the main gear clutch has been modified.
We would like to point out that the Nissan Patrol with which we tested in today’s episode can be used on a daily basis, and it definitely works with a four-wheel-drive system.
