Default Stillen's 620hp Targa Newfoundland Nissan GT-R Hits 60 MPH in 2.9 s - With VIDEO


With the Targa Newfoundland just two weeks away, Stillen has unleashed its race-ready Nissan GT-R upon the internet.

Prior to the race Stillen took its 620hp monster to the El Toro Marine base for a little performance test organized by Road & Track and the results are more than impressive. The tests revealed a 0-60 mph time of just 2.9 seconds, with a 1/4 mile time of 11 seconds flat at 127.9 mph! Don't believe us? Watch the video below.

Along with a host of performance adders, like a Turbosmart boost controller and a Stillen exhaust setup, the Stillen GT-R also received a set of AP Racing brakes, Eibach springs and several other Stillen suspension bits. Stillen even set about manufacturing a polyurethane body kit and then contracted Password JDM for a long list of carbon fiber panels. Those panels, along with a stripped-out interior, mean the Stilen GT-R weighs significantly less than stock.

We'll be sure to keep an eye on Steve Millen's progress at the Targa Newfoundland, which runs from September 12th to 19th.

What a waste to own that and be stuck in city driving or suburbia speed limits.

Where is it out west where there is no posted speed limit (on some roads)? Some place in Nevada?

How do you NOT want to drive that at 120?

That is exactly the states I was thinking about.

Too bad, I mean what is the point of owning such a beast if you can't let her rip. Imagine owning one and living in LA where you are zipping along the freeway at 12 MPH. What's the point?
