"A special Stagea that was given a specially designed body; nicknamed the GT-R estate."
In 1996, when the words "station wagon" were considered taboo in the US, Nissan produced the Stagea for the Japanese market. From the exterior, the styling can be likened to that of a Volvo, with its boxy overall shape and sharp corners. The Stagea stretched 188.9 inches from bumper to bumper and sat 69.0 inches wide. The enthusiast's trim level of choice was the 25t RS Four that came equipped with the Skyline GTS-25 Type M's 2.5-liter DOHC six-cylinder engine with direct injection. It pumped out 276 HP, which was actually 30 HP more than the Skyline, with 253.1 ft-lb of torque.
For the hardcore enthusiast, Nissan built the 260RS, which was designed by Nissan's specialty vehicle/customization specialist, Autech. Underneath its hood lurked the RB26DETT inline-6, the same powerplant as the Skyline GT-R, that cranked out 276 HP and an asphalt-crunching 271.2 ft-lb of torque. Power was sent to all four tires via the ATTESA E-TS all-wheel-drive system, a la the GT-R, and drivers shifted gears through a 5-speed manual gearbox.
Both the 25t RS Four and the 260RS featured multilink suspension for both the front and rear, with the rear tread widened to ensure maximum stability. The 260RS had custom shock and springs to handle the big power of the RB, as well as natural reinforcements to the pillars. The car was fitted with Brembo brakes, while a sports body kit provided downforce at high speed.
