Powerhouse Unveiled: Nissan’s 2025 GT-R SUV Rivaling Lamborghini Urus

Our Exclusive 1000-hp GT-R SUV render is the Super SUV Killer to smoke the Lamborghini Urus, Ferrari Purosangue, and even the world’s quickest SUV.

Will there be a new Nissan R36 GT-R? This question makes us both excited and impatient. We bet you have also had enough of the rumors and “supposed updates” on the future of the GT-R nameplate. So, after our patience ran dry, we created this Exclusive 2025 Nissan GT-R SUV with the help of HotCars artist Timothy Adry Emmanuel.

We take all the best bits of the GT-R and dial it up to 11 in this wicked vision of a Super SUV Slayer. The GT-R’s beastly twin-turbo V6 is hybridized here, the second-row seats are actually good for adults, and the sinister design actually makes us crave to see a GT-R SUV become a reality. Forget the Lamborghini Urus or even the more powerful V12 Ferrari Purosangue, even the world’s quickest SUV will fall short in front of the Godzilla of SUVs!

This GT-R SUV Puts The Legendary VR38DETT Engine To Electrifying Use Nissan’s Legendary Takumi (four master craftsmen) hand-build each of the R35 GT-R’s twin-turbocharged V6 engines. It pumps out 565 hp and 467 lb-ft of torque, which, to be honest, doesn’t even cut into the supercar category today. But still, the 2024 GT-R can make sophisticated supercars with more cylinders sweat. The major reason for this is the iconic VR38DETT engine, a true engineering marvel.

Our artist, Adry has dialed things up further in our GT-R SUV by hybridizing the twin-turbo V6. Two motors are attached to each of the rear wheels. It is also why those gigantic rear fenders exist. Each electric motor is capable of 150 hp. The highly tunable twin-turbo V6 has also been bumped up to 710 hp using the same upgrades that the limited edition GT-R50 by Italdesign got. The combined power output of this GT-R SUV on steroids is an impressive 1,010 hp. The torque figure also goes up notably to 960 lb-ft. We have also added a huge floor-mounted battery pack as well, which can be charged externally.

This plug-in GT-R SUV, despite being way heavier than the GT-R coupe, is still capable of doing 0-60 mph in under 2.5 seconds. For reference, the 2024 GT-R does 0-60 in 2.9 seconds. Apart from the quick and precise 6-speed DCT coupled to the V6, the instant jolt of torque from this GT-R SUV’s rear-mounted electric motors is what helps it achieve insane acceleration figures.

Our GT-R SUV with a 0-60 of under 2.5 seconds makes it the quickest super SUV ever made on paper, even quicker than the current fastest SUV – the 1,020-HP Tesla Model X Plaid that does 60 mph in 2.5 seconds. History is repeating all over again because back in 2008, the GT-R coupe sent shockwaves into the supercar world by doing 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds.

To give you an idea of how cool this was, the 2012 Audi R8 V10 did 0-60 in 3.7 seconds, and the $300,000+ Ferrari F430 Scuderia did 0-60 in a marginally better 3.3 seconds. But the GT-R cost less than three times that of the Ferrari back then at under $80,000!

Today, the closest competition to our $120,000 GT-R SUV would have been the 2023 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat in terms of pricing. But the Durango is a bulky limited-run gas-guzzler. So, the next most apt contender is the segment-disrupting Lamborghini Urus. But this $235,000 V12-powered Super SUV will be slaughtered by our GT-R SUV as its 650 horses and 0-60 time of 3.5 seconds is nowhere close to being competitive.

Even the more brutal Urus Performante fails to even flinch our GT-R “Hyper-SUV”. So, our 2025 GT-R SUV eats the Lamborghini Urus for breakfast, all day, every day. The Ferrari Purosangue is for lunch, and the Rivian R1S is for dinner! Our GT-R SUV Concept is a peek at what an underdog Super SUV with hybrid power looks like.

This Imagined 2025 Nissan GT-R SUV Is A Lamborghini Urus-Hunting Godzilla On Steroids While we imagine what a GT-R SUV will look like here, Nissan actually tried its hand at making a crossover with GT-R DNA. The standard Nissan Juke was a very ugly crossover with no more than 200 hp. But there was another version of the Juke that baffled journalists and competitors alike. Called the Nissan Juke-R, this still-ugly crossover was literally a GT-R on stilts. Nissan plonked the GT-R’s twin-turbo V6 in the Juke-R, complete with the slick six-speed gearbox. The result was a 485-hp AWD ‘mouse’ that did 0-60 mph in a claimed 3.7 seconds.

Then, Nissan dialed it up further to create the Juke-R 2.0. It bumped up the power to 591 hp. The outcome was a wild crossover that did 0-60 in about 3 seconds; That’s McLaren F1 fast! While the numbers were impressive, the design wasn’t. Also, the Juke came out during a time when a Super SUV was still a tough pill to swallow. To top it all up, it had a price tag of close to $600,000. That was so unlike Nissan. About 23 Juke-Rs were planned, but just five were ever made.

But our GT-R SUV fixes all the flaws that made the Juke-R a bummer. It gets a design that is heavily inspired by the iconic GT-R coupe. The front fascia, along with the rear quad-ring taillight design, has been retained and beefed up to look cool in an SUV format. Despite being a bulky affair, the GT-R SUV still packs character and doesn’t look like the aftermath of a botched plastic surgery. The use of a hybrid powertrain also makes this 1000-HP GT-R SUV a more practical option that can be daily-driven. Finally, the pricing is not what will make your eyes pop but will uphold the GT-R’s fame of being the underdog.

Love it or hate it, the SUV is the hottest body style today. Everyone wants a jacked-up car, even supercar owners. So, it would be of no surprise if Nissan diversified the next-gen R36 GT-R into a coupe and an SUV version. While nothing is clear as to when the next-gen GT-R will break cover and what will power it, the internet is filled with speculations. The most plausible one, we believe, has to be the R36 GT-R packing a hybrid VR38DETT engine. This powertrain in the coupe can pack up to 800 hp, and the speculated SUV, as we imagined, can be a 1,000-hp underdog.

But for any concrete and official details, we will have to wait for quite a while. Recently, when

Mr. Philip Klein, Nissan’s product planning executive, was asked about the R36 GT-R by the peeps at TopGear, he stated,

Yes, you should keep the faith, because we do! The driving experience is very high on our priority list. EVs are very fun to drive. And we’re moving our petrol powertrains to electrification with hybrid e-power. In the end we would like the regulations to take nothing away from how fun the car is to drive. It’s not always easy, but this is the direction. Yes, we’re still looking at the future of sports cars.

So yes, there is a bold new next-gen hybrid Nissan GT-R in the making. But will it also include a bolder SUV? It is all a game of guesses for now. But if a Nissan GT-R SUV ever becomes a reality, then be prepared to meet The Super SUV slayer!
