As far as I am aware the picture is of a nismo stagea . The same picture is on a few web sites but originated from one which gave the spec as well. Power was about 400bhp (0-62,5 mph in 5.1 secs)
Trouble is they are so rare that it difficult to confirm either way.

There is no Nismo Stagea; not one with any engine tuning anyway - just a bodykit.
There are many references to the nismo version on the net including a mention on wikpedia (or whatever its called) The nismo version is mentioned there but ytou need to read all the autech report to find it.
also details on gtrclub.org/r33htm where it says it was similar to the 400r but only had 380bhp. plus a few others.

Stagea catalogues

Bean, i know where you are coming from, Its the same situation with the current VQ35 engine cars.
There is not a nismo verson but you can buy a complete set of nismo suspension, aeroparts, decals an exhaust, and wheels etc to put on your own car, in much the same way as subaru imprezas in the 90's with the prodrive catalogue.

This poses the question how many parts would you have to buy from the nismo catalogue to call it a nismo car? The same dilema that faced GC8 impreza owners, how much prodrive stuff do you put on your car to make it a WRS?:confused:

I was looking to import a 'DAYZ' edition as this has all of the aero stuff on it already

There was a nismo version of the stagea but the only thing special was the gtr engine & running gear. The rest of the stuff looks like its straight out of of the nismo options catalogue.

I can see you know what I mean - but the only Stagea produced with a GTR engine and drivetrain was the Autech 260RS - there is no Nismo variant.
(I am happy to be proved wrong though since I'd love to buy one - but since the guys at Omori Factory have never heard of it, I'm going to side with them)

OOPs my bad

"There was a nismo version of the stagea but the only thing special was the gtr engine & running gear."

What I meant to say was

"There was a nismo version of the stagea but the only thing special was the aeroparts & wheel options."


There maybe a Nismo stagea but it might just be based on the Autec car.

The conundrum with the pic is that you can make out Nismo on the intercooler, and that the bonnet is vented.
discounting the intercooler as a catalogue part, it still poses the question of the bonnet.

The only peeps that seem to specialise in stageas is MASA but they have never heard of or seen this 400r style vented bonnet before.

I've been to the nismo driving park and looked at the shiny stuff nissan rolled out but there was nothing like this yellow stagea

Maybe there is a nismo stagea but it was just a one/two off concept car?
