The Nissan Stagea Turbo is extremely rare in RS Four S spec - This model has a factory fitted 5 speed manual with a Skyline R33 GT-R based 4WD system.
As with the GT-R, drive is usually to the back wheels, with the Atessa system sending drive to the front wheels when the electronics sense that the rear wheels are slipping. There is also a HICAS system to help control rear end slides. The engine of the RS Four S is an RB25 derived Neo 24 Valve DOHC (Variable valve timing) straight six turbo, which as standard produced 280 bhp out of the factory. This resulted in a spaceous 5 seater with excellent load carrying ability combined with handling, road holding and performance somewhere between that of a Skyline R34 GT-Turbo and a Skyline GT-R!
Additional Cosmetic & Handling Specification: Starting with a rare and desirable RS Four Stagea specification an original factory fitted Autech bodykit is included. The Neo 6 2.5 turbo engine has a new Apexi Power Intake induction kit, which produces induction sound as well as making the original blow off valve audiable. Power as standard is 280 bhp. Suspension consists of coilover units at each corner by TEIN. Wheels are original 350Z GT alloys 18" size, fitted with sports tyres of size 245/45R18 rear and 225/45R18 front.
Further performance upgrades: Note we are suppliers of all performance parts available from Japan. If you'd like to uprate performance further, we recommend fitting an uprated exhaust, ECU, 555cc injectors, boost controller and uprated fuel pump, which combined with a mild boost hike will see this car produce over 360 bhp. Further power would also be available from a n HKS GT-SS turbo conversion - to run up to 1.3 bar of boost and get around 450 bhp. Note we also supply all cosmetic upgrades for Stageas, from body parts to Bride seats, inclusive of retrim kits, large rear spoilers, etc. Visit www.neweraparts.com for details of other items available or ask!

Condition: Our full array of pictures will speak for themselves - to show the outstanding condition of this Stagea RS Four S. It's been regularly polished, well cared for and would appear to have been garaged most of the time. We can tell it's never been used on salted roads, since the underside is completely rust free - Looks much like a 1-2 year old car would in UK.
Only the following minor faults to report: n/s front† 350Z wheel has some scratches. This will be repaired / replaced as part of full UK preparation. Both front tyres are at the legal limit for wear, so they'll be replaced with new. On the front n/s bumper corner there's some touched in scratches & on the o/s section below the headlight there's a small section of minor discolouration. On the bonnet there are some marks from bird droppings, these may polish off with compound. Finally on the rear n/s spat underside there's some minor scratches. Each of these minor faults is too small to require repair, but have been mentioned to give a complete report.
Test Drive: A 5km test drive revealed a car with no mechanical faults to report. Clutch has plenty of life left and brakes feel strong and disc-warp free† There are clear signs this car's been well cared for and regularly serviced. Oil has recently been changed and timing belt was changed at 68,124km (42,339 miles). Mechanically it's in excellent condition. Strong power with good response, and all signs of well maintained Stagea.
