A rally-prepared Nissan GT-R will tackle this year's Targa Newfoundland.

Refinements include extensive use of carbonfibre to reduce the car's weight, new air intake and exhaust systems, a new boost controller, and fully adjustable suspension. The brakes have also been uprated to AP Racing competition units.

The car will be driven on the 1400-mile event by company boss Steve Millen. The Targa Newfoundland begins on 12 September and lasts for one week.
