Click above for a gallery of the Nissan GT-R "wagon"

Let's get this over with right now: This isn't really a Nissan GT-R wagon. That said, it is a decidedly artful conversion of the Japanese automaker's M35 series Stagea wagon, a JDM load-lugger it produced from 2001 to 2007. Available in both rear- and all-wheel drive with a variety of V6 powerplants, the now-dead Stagea has been called the "GT-R Wagon" by many enthusiasts.

Spotted at Nagoya Auto Trend this weekend, this particular Stagea looks to be a super-clean conversion, with a well-integrated R35 GT-R front-end that's been carried through along the bodysides, with factory-like rocker panel indents and modestly rear quarter panels to keep the theme.

While we don't have information about what lurks underneath, the folks at GTRBlog speculate that the wagon could have something interesting like a stroked VQ-series V6 with a twin-turbo kit. Given the apparent high level of finish on the outside, we would hope for nothing less. Check out the galleries below for more shots of both the GT-R and Stagea wagons... and if you find any additional information on this particular car, drop us a tip!

      The original looks like it was photocomped from several cars to make one of those generic ones you see on packaging for auto accessories at Pep Boys. Do like the GT-R conversion though.

        Hi all,

        This car was built by my friends company "Kids Heart" in Nagoya, Japan. It is currently for sale for 2,500,000 Yen. If anyone is interested in the car please contact me. Also, check out my website.... www.doricar.jp

      I would love to have this car, however the Accord wagon is a much better example of attractive wagon styling

      Look at the front! This IS our current Nissan Maxima. What the US is getting as a new Nissan is actually 8 years old

        Something old to someone new is new.

        Oh my God. Shut up. It's just the grille shape. It has no other resemblances to the 2009 Maxima.

        I swear, most of the people on here are retarded.

      I say this form suits the R35 front end more than the coupe. If I could have one, I would.

      I really like it!

      I do have one problem with it......It would be better if they started with a GT-R and added the rear wagon part to it.

      That way it would handle like the GT-R

      Not pretty, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't love it. LOL
        • 5 Years Ago
        The exact same thing can be (and often is) said of the real GT-R. :)
