Nissan Navara truck hides an 800hp GT-R heart

We love it when carmakers get wacky and build cars or trucks that have insane amount of power for no good reason other than they can. Such was the case last summer when Nissan rolled out the Juke-R 2.0 that packed away an engine right out of a GT-R. You could buy the Juke-R if you had the money and inclination to do so.
