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 wagon, is being auctioned in the US. Although it was never officially sold in the country, it is now eligible due to its age. The car shares the same drivetrain as the GT-R, including a powerful engine, manual transmission, and all-wheel drive. It also features larger brakes, a unique body kit, and special wheels. With only 1,734 units produced, this particular model is highly sought after and is expected to fetch a high price at auction.
Fast wagons are a unique breed of vehicles that offer a combination of practicality and performance. One such example is the Nissan Stagea 260RS Autech, which is now up 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 imported. Instead of going through the trouble of finding and importing one yourself, someone has already done the work for you, making it easier for you to own this rare vehicle. The only adjustment you'll need to make is getting used to the fact that the steering wheel is 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 high-performance GT-R, there were also less powerful variants including 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 exact same drivetrain as the GT-R, including the powerful RB26DETT engine, a manual transmission, and all-wheel drive. Although the engine is factory-rated at 276 hp, it is believed to produce even more power. This particular version of the Stagea is the only one equipped with this potent powertrain, and it also comes with other special features.
The brakes are larger and equipped with Brembo calipers. The body kit is unique to this version and remains intact on this car. Under the hood, a strut tower brace improves chassis rigidity, and it also sports special 17-inch Stagea wheels. Not to mention, there is a prominent rear wing that adds to its sporty appearance.
Only 1,734 units of this model were produced by Nissan, and now you have the opportunity to own one. The car is currently up for auction on Cars & Bids, with the bidding price at $22,472 at the time of writing. It is expected to fetch a considerably higher price as the auction progresses.
