Stagea GT-R’s

Today’s post is going to be picture heavy because I’m feeling super lazy.  But I am still brining the awesome for you guys.

There has been a lot of buzz lately over the Kids Heart R35/Stagea Wagon.  It seems a lot of people don’t know that it is actually a Nissan Stagea Wagon with an R35 front clip and rear end accents.  A lot of people are thinking this is some pre-production R35 Wagon.  While that would be freaking awesome to have an R35 Wagon, this is just a custom piece.  But I could definitely see how this wagon would be quite deceiving  if you don’t know much about the Stagea.

My only Gripe with this gorgeous Stagea/R35 is where the fenders meet the a-pillar.  I feel that could have definitely been done much cleaner.  It doesn’t flow well, it just kind of stops and then the rest of the car continues.

Here is a stock M35 Stagea for reference.  You can see the distinct body line of the M35.


This is a Bippu Tuned M35 that I blogged about earlier.  It is tuned in a more “traditional” way.  Continues with most of the stock body styling, aside from the body kit and rolled fenders.

Now for the orginal GT-R front end mod:

R32 Stagea

The transplant of the R34 front end onto the front of old Stagea’s is a very popular modification in Japan.  People have been doing it for years.  The clip is so popular because it is basically a bolt-on front end from the R34 to the Stagea.  When done right, it looks damn near stock.  

It is kind of like how S15, 108SX, 240SX, S13, and S14 front ends are all somewhat interchangeable.  Some require modification, but they are more-or-less bot-on front clips that can be basically swapped beween models.

These two first-gen Stagea Wgaons are fitted with R34 front clips.  They look pretty good and look like they came that way from the factory.

Here we have a stock Stagea for reference.  

And now just for fun:


This is a first-gen Stagea with an R34 front end and a chopped rear end.  It’s kind of like a Stagea/R34/Ute.  Kind of cool, I like it.  It’s like a sexy Skyline pickup truck, that can drift.


It hauls in more ways than one!

    I had an RS4 and looked into that R34 mod, apparently the wings are custom made, it’s not possible to just bolt on the R34 front end.

    Looks awesome though.

      You’re right it’s not a bolt on thing, but it’s not super difficult, unless I have been misinformed. If I have it wrong let me know, I’ll edit the post.
