'Sleeper?' Or not 'Sleeper?' VR38 Patrol 'double agent' set Half Mile Record!

We all remember when Richard Hammond of Grand Tour took the challenge to the natives in Dubai to race a Porsche 918 hypercar against a suspiciously low-key-looking Nissan Patrol.And yes you still remember the outcome of what the VR38 powered Patrol did to Porsche!Complete damage(Joke is;Richard hasn't recovered yet!) But what you didn't know is that,the white Patrol you were introduced to in the Grand Tour just got a 'double agent'. And its faster than its predecessor!

They created an SUV that is faster than a Porsche. And they made it look simple.Swapped a GTR into a Nissan Patrol that it is  almost hard to contrast!
Everything in this car is GT-R. From its 3.8l VR38 DETT twin turbo V6 producing a mind blowing 1900 horsepower. The interior that remains full GT-R.Running on a Michelin Tyre fitted with carbon breaks while Syvec maintaining checks and balance in the twin turbo V6 reaching an imaginable speed-

They came to Qatar Mile Round 3 with the pair of VR38  and it took the black one a one debut run on the sunny runway (straight out of trailer) to send the message that they were going straight for the SUV half mile world record;which was at 333km/h by Al Anabi racing's golden tb48 Patrol.The first run they reached a high flying 331km/h against strong blowing winds before turning around to run a world record pass 335km/h at half mile.The white didn't fail to impress either reaching a couple of 325km/h and 332km/h.

  • Overview

The VR38 Patrol took the world by storm when it beat Hammond driving Porsche 918 shortly after in 2016 at Qatar Mile event the white one in the Grand Tour was unleashed at full tilt to run 328km/h over half mile to create the SUV record. In 2017 however,Al Anabi SUV ran another jaw cracking 333km/h with Mahana Al Naemi to set the record. Only that it didn't last long. F_Performance with Saeed Shamsi came from Dubai after missing a number of runs in round 1 and round 2 of Qatar Mile to set it farther to a 335km/h  at Round 3 season finale and we are very comfortable this figures wont last long.
