Stillen Nissan GT-R Targa Race Car - Click above to watch the video after the jump

It's been more than six months since Stillen started working on their Nissan GT-R race car and we're happy to report it's finished and already on its way to Eastern Canada where it will compete in the Targa Newfoundland in a few weeks. Before the hopped-up GT-R was loaded on the trailer, Steve Millen and his crew took the car out to the El Toro Marine base for a few shakedown runs. Road and Track tagged along to record some performance numbers that, as you might expect, are nothing short of impressive.

Thanks to a huge list of performance parts, the Stillenized GT-R produces 620 horsepower at 15psi from its dual turbochargers. Perhaps more importantly, several hundred pounds have been removed thanks to a stripped interior, lots of carbon fiber body components and lightweight racing seats. The extra power and weight savings results in a 0-60 mph time of just 2.9 seconds and a 1/4 mile pass in a mere 11.0 seconds at 127.9 mph. Lateral grip is a gut-clenching 1.1g. You can see the Stillen GT-R in action in the video after the jump or browse through the high-res gallery below.

      i wonder what kinda time this car would do on the ring compared to standard.. extra power, less weight, suspension upgrade and carbon-ceramic brakes.. must make a significant improvement

      This can must be very unconformable to drive on a day to day basis.

      All that power and acceleration speed will put strain on your neck for sure.



      Turbo charged 4wd cars are no joke out the box.

        @JDM Life
        Absolutely unconformable. This car doesn't conform to any normal standards.

      Cooked brakes, massive understeer, tires screaming for mercy, and can't break off a 10 second quarter mile? Time to revisit the drawing board!
        • 5 Years Ago
        had to have someone put down the efforts...right? fool....

        maybe you should look into what is called for in the race they are entering...
        • 5 Years Ago
        Leave 'em to their ignorance axle... Some people just wanna hate.
        • 5 Years Ago
        i wouldn't call stillen a little tuner.
        • 5 Years Ago
        yeh i find it funny that they claim theyve made the handling better while adding 100bhp.

        it took nissan years to engineer the gtr and this little tuner comes along thinking theyve outdone em.

        this is nothing more than a tarmac rally car as they claim and i'd love to see them try to run the ring in this thing.

      Med. AMS got a GT-R to run a 10.48 @ 134.30 on pump gas with similar kind of work (makes 600+WHP).
