Of all the cars that are being penciled in for the 2012 Geneva Motor Show , one of the most interesting has to be the Invader N40.
Unlike a lot of the tuning programs that are usually unveiled at a major show like Geneva, the Invader N40 isn’t based on a sports car or a luxury car. What it is is a Nissan Patrol , which, last we checked, isn’t exactly considered a tuning favorite.
Having said that, the Invader N40 is a different beast altogether. Built and designed by Invader Technologies, the N40 is considered the ultimate customization program for the Patrol, with about as many aerodynamic modifications as any other tuning program we’ve seen in quite some time.
The wide body kit is only the beginning of it. There’s also a restyled front end that features Invader signature LED lights to go with blackened headlights, and plenty of carbon fiber detailing added into the body panels of the SUV. On top of that, Invader also fitted the N40 with a brand-spankin’ new set of 22" forged multi-piece alloy wheels to give the SUV a far more aggressive stance and overall look.
Inside, the N40 sports plenty of other modifications, particularly the prevalent use of carbon fiber, high-grade leather, and Alcantara, three materials that you usually won’t find in a Patrol.
Invader has yet to reveal what they did under the hood of the N40, but one thing they did say was that it won’t come with the same 600-horsepower Invader supercharger that it’s previous creation, the L60, carried. It’s going to be interesting, to say the least, to see what kind of performance modifications they added to the N40 because if there’s one thing we know about these guys, it’s that they don’t hold anything back.
