Monthly Archives: September 2008

We thought it would be interesting to show everyone out there what goes on behind the scenes during the big SEMA push here at STILLEN. The first project car we’re going to reveal is our 2009 STILLEN Maxima. As usual we’ve got a comprehensive build planned which addresses all of the major systems on the car including power, suspension, braking, appearance and entertainment.

The first and one of the most time consuming parts of the process is creating appearance upgrades in our durable STILLEN urethane.

Steve Millen and the STILLEN crew are very excited to once again be participating in the Dunlop Targa Rally held in New Zealand with the STILLEN Ford GT. This is an annual road rally held on 38 stages run over closed public roads, with a variety of vehicles, from classics to Porsche’s, EVO’s, STi’s, Skyline’s and everything in between.

The competition stages are public roads which have been closed by the police and driven flat out. The goal is simple, the car that covers the distance in the shortest time wins.

EDIT: Here’s some additional coverage, photos, and previous stories from our friends at Autoblog.com

Videos of the 2006 Targa Rally, including in-car are available at the STILLEN GT Project Vehicle page
