The 2000 Nissan Stagea 260RS Autech Version is a wolf in sheep’s clothing that’s essentially an extended Nissan Skyline GT-R with 2.6L twin-turbo engine, 5-speed manual transmission and ATTESA E-TS AWD.

It’s easy to imagine the fun you could have… When pulling up to the stoplight in your “station wagon”, the driver in the next lane smirks and revs the engine of his fancy sports car. As the light turns green, he accelerates hard and looks in the rearview mirror. But you aren’t there. You pass him and leave him further behind when exiting the next corner…

This JDM 2000 Nissan Stagea 260RS Autech Version was sourced by Japan Car Direct for an enthusiast in Canada. It was initially purchased new at a Nissan dealership in Japan after being specially modified by Autech, a Nissan subsidiary that tunes and converts Nissans to bring out their full potential.

Officially, the 2.6-liter twin-turbo inline-six engine on the JDM Autech Version produces 280 PS (206 kW; 276 hp) and 353 N⋅m (260 lbf⋅ft; 36 kg⋅m). But anyone familiar with the JDM gentlemen’s agreement knows the actual horesepower is higher. Moreover, you can easily modify it to enjoy 400 or 500 hp.

Autech modifications extend beyond the engine and transmission to include a strengthened chassis, enhanced suspension, aerodynamic body kit and special interior trim. These complement other style and performance features like ATTESA E-TS all-wheel drive, a limited-slip rear differential, Brembo brakes, forged alloy wheels and GTR-style meters.

Many Nissan Stagea parts are shared with the Skyline and Laurel, which helps ensure availability at reasonable prices. Since only 1,734 Nissan Stageas of the 260RS grade were produced between 1996 and 2001, they should maintain their value for years to come.

The JDM Nissan Stagea 260RS Autech Version may be the perfect choice for car enthusiasts raising families because:

  • There are seats for up seven (with all seats installed) and plenty of luggage space.
  • Its comfortable and includes features like air conditioning.
  • The reliable Nissan engine is long-lasting and affordable to maintain.
  • The Stagea is less expensive than other performance cars on your want list.

Those living in the United States will have to wait a few years to import the JDM 2000 Stagea 260RS Autech Version. But you can already import the 1996 Stagea 260RS, which we also recommend. Other grades of the Nissan Stagea are also available with a smaller 2.0 or 2.5-liter engine and 4-speed automatic transmission.

If you’ve been dying to get your hands on a GT-R or Laurel, but want to spend less, the Nissan Stagea is an excellent alternative. There are also lots of other great used JDM cars worth considering. Contact Japan Car Direct for more details on how you can import a used JDM car from Japan.
