I've actually been in one while living in the UK as a mate of mine imported cars from Japan and had a regular one (not the Autech 260RS). They're pretty cool cars, but it didn't feel much more special than the other "super wagons" they built in Japan at that time like the Mitsubishi Legnum and the twin-turbo Subaru Legacy.

The price does seem a tad high even with the prices of rare cars going up in Japan. I'm also a bit surprised by the CA plates as the Stageas were only made around the turn of the millennium, and the fun of getting even GT-Rs imported under the 25 year exemption smog legal in CA.

Not to mention the fact that it's advertised as a GT-R when it is an Autech Stagea 260RS (assuming it's not an after-the-fact shade tree conversion).

I bet anything the plates are fake, or dealer type move from car to car. Fake California plate on front is a thing in PA.

If anyone hasn't seen the series of videos on Youtube yet, the Mighty Car Mods guys built up a Stagea wagon a couple years ago that was pretty cool.

Ah yes, an illegally imported Stagea with an ugly GT-R nose conversion.

There's still a good 7-8 years left before these are eligible for US import at the federal level, and these aren't on the Show & Display waiver list, so there's some sketchy business afoot here...

I wouldn't be surprised if it has never actually been titled or registered here as getting grey-market imports through CARB certification is a HUGE headache.

Other than they're both station wagons and they're both white, there's not much resemblance.  One is square and the other is not.

Oh boy, someone got hold of Doc Brown's time machine to import a car.

That's "government coming down on you like a ton of bricks" territory, likely to end in massive fines and cubed cars. Not to mention that it makes life a lot harder for those of us who occasionally try to legally import a vehicle.

I was referring to the wagon box. And Volvos aren't actually square in that area. They have similar curvature at the rear end to the OP pic. But we can agree to disagree. Doesn't much matter since it's not an actual Skyline anyhow....
