Video: Stillen Nissan GT-R: 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds

Submitted by on August 30, 2009 – 10:27 pmNo Comment

stillengtrracecar_07It’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. Check out the Stillen GT-R in action in the video or browse through the high-res gallery below.
