Nissan Stagea R34 GT-R Wagon Will Make You The Coolest Kid On The Block

You know what the best thing about this car is? It’s listed for sale on eBay right here in the United States, and specifically, in Illinois.

To my knowledge, Nissan never made a GT-R version of the Nissan Stagea station wagon, but the tuning and aftermarket industry took advantage of its Nissan Skyline roots to convert a number of them into GT-R replicas.

We’re not only talking about cosmetics here, but also about the mechanicals of the GT-R, as is the case with this Nissan Stagea that was previously owned and built by Ross Petty, a well-known figure in the drifting sports world.

Petty didn’t transplant that GT-R face on the Stagea just for looks, as behind it lies a full mechanical conversion from a R34 GT-R, with the 2.6-liter twin-turbocharged straight-six RB26DETT engine said to be currently running on 18psi.

The current owner of the vehicle says he spent some $5k within the last year for “maintenance and upkeep” changing among other things the old turbos with new ones and realigning the front end for a better look.

It could be yours for $36,000 or less, as the seller is accepting offers.

If you like these kind of conversions, check out this 1972 Skyline GT-R faced Stagea and this GT-R R35-faced Stagea.

    There was a guy at the Watkins Glen vintage race with a flip-flop paint, V8 MG Wagon (LHD) – only factory one in the USA. This pic is a similar one.

    FYI, the 2.6 Autech version came standard with the BNR33 engine and tranny.

  • Could have been good…

    What a p*ss poor job on the exterior. From that flat back end to those terrible rear lights, the 2nd half of the car is just awful.

    It looked alright from the outside, but that dumb looking overly big bore exhaust and those plastic backed seats just killed it for me, then I saw under the hood…..why do people always do a cold air intake system and then leave them open to all the hot air in the engine bay? There’s a reason professional installations of cold air intake systems have boxes around them, because it actually works sucking in cold outside air than hot air being whipped around in the bay. This car basically got the super douche treatment. The only redeeming things about it are the GT-R swap, decent body kit and the GT-R rims. The rims and non-obnoxious paint job add class, but the rest ruins that look.
