The sleeper car category has always been a broad one, and encapsulating anything from SUVs to uglier sorts of station wagons that confirm to all that a children of those owners will forever be fresh meat for bullies.
In all fairness, the anonymity of the sleeper car is kind of the point because the more inconspicuous the car looks to the unsuspecting pink slip holder, the better.
The only other reoccurring theme that must be in place to make the car a sleeper is a few metric tons of hp.
For whatever the reason, one popular pick for the tuners has been the Nissan Patrol SUV, known to us as the Armada in its current incarnation.
Richard recently drag raced one against the Porsche 918 Spyder in the episode of The Grand Tour, and thanks to a 1,900 hp output, it won. This time around, we get under the hood of the Patrol that would make the Grand Tour sleeper look tame.
Stuffed with the four turbochargers intent on choking the motor to death with air, and this beast of an engine puts out just under 3,000 hp or a not so subtle 1,100 hp more than the Nissan Patrol that beat a Porsche 918 Spyder.
Yes, a power premium it has over that Patrol is more than the original world record-beating Bugatti Veyron.
Continuing the theme of absurdity are four intercoolers, and each cleverly hidden so that it is almost impossible for someone outside the vehicle to tell that it’s been modified well past the standard capabilities of the normal Patrol. This is insanity done right.
