Stillen has taken the stock Nissan GT-R and modified it into a true rally car that will compete at the upcoming Targa Newfoundland rally race. The new Nissan GT-R received several car tuning parts to make it faster, lighter, and improve handling for the upcoming race. Stillen experts focused on an extreme weight saving program by replacing stock pieces with carbon fiber, and removing unnecessary components. Then they modified the engine, installed an aftermarket suspension, bigger brakes, and a nice sounding exhaust system. Keeping the stock motor set in place, Stillen took the Nissan GT-R Rally Car and tuned the ECU, along with all the aftermarket parts for a total output of 620 hp. At the track it is able to accelerate from 0-60 mph in only 2.9 seconds, one of the few tuned cars to break the 3.0 second mark.
The Stillen Nissan GT-R reaches 130 mph with a very fast time of 11.4 seconds, and after extensive testing and tuning on the track, it has a lateral grip of 1.1 G+. A new body kit was installed with better aerodynamics, and Stillen had to add a custom roll cage, racing accessories, and equipment to be eligible for rally racing. Boasting a top speed of over 190 mph, it will be interesting to see how the Nissan GT-R performs on the rally track at the Targa Newfoundland race.
