Nissan GT-R Wagon Makes Debut at Nagoya Auto Trend 2009

March 8, 2009

The Japanese have a bit of a history of building hot wagons. Whether it’s the R33 GT-R wagon hand built by Option and Trial or the official “unofficial GT-R wagon” the Autech Stagea RS260 famous for it’s GT-R drivetrain and the subsequent R34 GT-R Masa Motorsports front end fascia swaps adapted to it later on.

Of course times change and we move on. The RB26DETT is out of production and so the Autech Stagea has become somewhat less of a buff over the stock M35 Stagea car so what can you do to fix that?

As shown here the answer was staring you in the face the whole time, this R35 front end swap on a M35 Stagea was on show at Nagoya Auto Trend this weekend. The swap seems to continue to the sides and the rear quarters are also slightly flared to keep with the theme. Overall looks to be a real solid job.

Powering these is usually the VQ35DE NA V6 3.5 litre engine in either RWD or AWD configuration so this one could easily be hiding a stroked VQ with a twin-turbo kit.

If you can’t picture what the M35 Stagea looked like before this check after the jump for a photo…
