Nissan Stagea 260RS Autech: The GT-R's Wagon Sidekick Available in the U.S.
【Summary】The Nissan Stagea 260RS Autech, a rare GT-R-inspired wagon, is being auctioned in the US with a US title. This model, never officially sold in the US, is now eligible due to its age. It shares the same drivetrain as the GT-R, including a powerful engine, manual transmission, and all-wheel drive. With special features like Brembo brakes and a unique body kit, this limited edition wagon is highly sought after, and the current auction price is expected to increase significantly.
Fast wagons are a unique type of vehicle that combines practicality and performance. One such example is the Nissan Stagea 260RS Autech, which is now available for auction in California with a US title.
What makes this particularly interesting is that the Stagea was never officially sold in the United States. However, due to its age of over 25 years, it is now allowed to be in the country. Instead of going through the trouble of finding and importing one yourself, someone has already done the work for you, allowing you to benefit from their efforts. The only adjustment you'll need to make is getting used to the steering wheel being on the opposite side.
The Stagea model is essentially a wagon version of the Nissan Skyline, which was sold until 2007. While the Skyline is often associated with the powerful GT-R, there were also less powerful models such as sedans and wagons like the Stagea. However, the 260RS Autech stands out for several reasons that are directly linked to the GT-R.
Most notably, the 260RS Autech shares the same drivetrain as the GT-R, including the RB26DETT engine, manual transmission, and all-wheel drive. Although the engine is factory-rated at 276 hp, it is believed to have more power than that. This particular version of the Stagea is the only one equipped with this powerful combination of engine and drivetrain, and it also features other special components.
The brakes are larger and equipped with Brembo calipers. The body kit is unique to this version, and this car still retains it. Under the hood, a strut tower brace improves chassis rigidity. Special 17-inch Stagea wheels are found on each corner, and this car still has them. Not to mention, there is a large wing at the rear of the car, adding to its sporty appearance.
Only 1,734 of these Stagea 260RS Autech models were produced, and now one of them can be yours. It is currently up for auction on Cars & Bids, with the bidding price already at $22,472 and expected to go for much higher.
