Stillen Nissan GT-R Rally Car

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2009:


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.

Senner Tuning Nissan 350Z Roadster Thunder

Friday, July 24th, 2009:


Senner Tuning brings us the highly modified Nissan 350Z Roadster Thunder today, with a new package that improves looks and performance. The Nissan 350Z is powered by the same 3.5-liter V6 engine which outputs 338 hp over the stock 301 hp. For the performance increases, Senner Tuning optimized the ECU, added a new exhaust system, and a carbon airbox. On the exterior are a variety of interesting additions, including Lambo doors from LSD which I doubt add much value since Lambo doors seem to be a mod of the past. A new front grille, front fender, and rear spoiler with an integrated brake light are included as well. The Nissan 350Z Roadster Thunder by Senner Tuning also rides on 20 inch chrome polished wheels wrapped in Continental tires.

Cobra N+ Nissan 370Z

Wednesday, July 15th, 2009:


Nissan factory tuners, Cobra N+ is known for amazing customizations for both the Nissan 370Z and GT-R. Their concept for the 370Z sports car does not have any major engine modifications or tuning, however the aerodynamic and handling improvements were enough to satisfy customers. Cobra N+ has manufactured lightweight wheels with six double spokes measuring 19×9 in the front, and 19×10 in the rear. Trying to keep the overall weight of the vehicle to a minimum, the lightweight rims are linked to an aftermarket spring kit that lowers the car by 30 mm. There is an optional coilover suspension setup available that adjusts the ride height between 20 and 40 mm. Aerodynamic improvements for the Nissan 370Z are a diffuser custom fitted into the factory rear bumper, carbon fiber front spoiler, and custom cutouts in the rear to accommodate the larger Cobra N+ sport exhaust system.

Impul Nissan 370Z body kit

Wednesday, June 10th, 2009:


Car styling company Impul has redesigned the Nissan 370Z body kit and it looks extremely aggressive. The new aerodynamic body kit is a little over the top and exaggerated in my opinion, especially in the rear. It features large air ducts in the front and rear that basically add zero performance improvements and are strictly for looks. Well…I guess the front bumper and lip combo doesn’t look too bad, there’s just too many Nissan 370Z out there now. The package is named the 934S v2.0 and is available now from Impul or their dealers around the country.
