STILLEN Release Front Lip Spoiler and Side Skirts for Nissan GT-R

Stillen Front Urethane Lip for Nissan GT-R

Having one of the best known names in the US car culture brings with it big expectations and today we’re happy to announce that STILLEN have not dissapointed.

Some of the first Nissan GT-R parts we’re able to let you guys know about are now released in the form of a front lip spoiler and side skirts. The team at STILLEN have gone to great lengths to get not just the look of these parts right but also the function and the materials they’re made from.

Using 100% polyurethane these body parts are flexible and durable and can take almost any punishment a race track – or driveway – can dish out.

The front lip extends the front spoiler two inches to increase downforce at the front and give a canard effect off the flared sides. The sideskirts also have a ledge extending out 2 inches which has been proven to improve downforce in circuit racing and in wind tunnel testing.

Loads more details in the official press release details you can read after the jump, or just enjoy the photo gallery and installation video provided by STILLEN below.

Stay tuned for more parts coming soon from STILLEN.

STILLEN Nissan GT-R R35 Body Components

Utilizing Steve Millen’s expansive racing heritage, STILLEN is proud to release functional high quality urethane body components for the Nissan GT-R R35.

Front Lip Spoiler:

Enhancing the aerodynamic performance of such a finely tuned car like the GT-R is no small feat. When developing the car Nissan did a great job of developing an aero package that works well, but left some room for improvement for the true enthusiast. One of the most common complaints of GT-R owners is the car has a tendency to “push” when exercised hard on a race course (understeer). Two ways to fix this condition are through the suspension, or increasing downforce via aerodynamics of the car at higher speeds. Increasing the aerodynamic downforce keeps the front end of the car planted and therefore improving front grip, reducing the “push” effect.

The STILLEN Urethane Lip Spoiler adds 2″ of length to the OEM fascia, and installs directly onto the vehicle over the factory piece. This lip spoiler is designed to hold additional air onto the nose, with flares on the side corners producing a canard effect for extra control.

Another major benefit of the front lip spoiler is the durability. Constructed out of high-quality polyurethane, this front spoiler is nearly indestructible and carries a limited lifetime warranty. This means it can stand up to the hazards of the race track or the drive around town with 100% driver/owner confidence.

Side Skirts:

Continuing the aerodynamic stabilization of the GT-R, STILLEN has developed new side skirts with a 2 inch ledge built in to apply more downforce to the car. This design comes from the testing performed on the legendary NISSAN 300ZX, campaigned in the IMSA sports car series at Le Mans, Daytona, and Sebring. Tested in the Lockheed Martin wind tunnel, the Nissan engineers found that by enhancing the side ledge on the rocker it applied a incremental amount of downforce at higher speeds thus keeping the car planted and more stable through high speed corners.

Another major benefit of the rockers is the greatly improved appearance. Offering a much more aggressive look and race proven engineering these rockers are sure to catch attention and compliments. Just like all STILLEN body work these are constructed out of durable polyurethane, ready for paint, and offer a limited lifetime warranty. Perfect for daily driving or track days and utilize the factory skirt mounting points to ensure a perfect fit and finish.
