Road & Track Magazine has practically been living at STILLEN documenting the build on the STILLEN GT-R.  We’re in the final stages of the build, with the BASF paint recently finished, Password:JDM dry carbon goodies, suspension, AP Racing carbon ceramic brakes and final installation beginning, including track testing in preparation for the 2009 Targa Newfoundland Rally.

Road & Track have released three new videos, one covering the GT-R in the paint booth, one highlighting the ultra lightweight Password:JDM dry carbon parts and some other upgrades, and the most recent with Steve Millen discussing the current suspension upgrades being done to the car.

The office was buzzing today, as development continues on braking improvements to the R35 Nissan GT-R.  Here’s a teaser shot of the upcoming STILLEN / AP Racing Carbon Ceramic Brake Upgrades currently in R&D here at STILLEN.

This setup will be used on the STILLEN GT-R being campaigned at the 2009 Targa Newfoundland Rally this September.

More information is coming soon.. be sure to follow our RSS Feed for up-to-date information as we release it.

Progress on the STILLEN GT-R continues at a maddening pace, getting the car prepared for the upcoming September deadline for the Targa Newfoundland Tarmac Rally.

With most of the lightening done, including gutting the interior, Password:JDM dry carbon panels, and even subtle lightening of other components (see below.. hey weight is weight), it was time to get the GT-R into the paint booth.
