Everything you wanted to know about the Nissan stagea s15

Manufactured first in 1996, the elegant Nissan stagea has 3 versions till 2008, the early WC34 Series 1 between1996 to late 1998, the WC34 Series 2 from late 1998 to 2001 and the latest M35 Series , manufactured between 2001 to 2007. This station wagon, referred to as the Skyline Wagon, when fitted with a 2.6 l twin turbo has given the Subaru Legacy touring wagon a run for its money in the domestic Japanese market. The ever popular Nissan stagea is a smart choice indeed as this vehicle, which comes in both 2 wheel and 4 wheel drive options.

In the WC34 series 1, it has engine power ranging from 153 hp (114kW) to 276 hp in the 2.6L engine models. Mechanically similar to the R33 Skyline, this station wagon is indeed an elegant looking car. A fine example of the Nissan wagon, this model has top of the range features and can be fitted with turbo power, sun roof, and could be painted silver, snowy white, dark blue or even fire clear red to match one’s personality.

For cars in the WC34 series 2, the engine choice is basically the same with up rated new version of the RB series and a tiptronic auto transmitter. In the M35 series though, the models resemble the Skyline sedan and the engine too changed from RB series to VQ series.

The prominence of the Skyline in movies, auto and magazines and fast paced video games has added to the popularity of this compact car, identified with its trademark brake and tail lights and the high performance GTR rim. As a matter of interest for some it is a fact that when 225 Nissan Skylines were used for racing or driving in the course of the racetrack during the International Styling and Tuning Show, it created a record that was included in the Guinness Book of World Record because the biggest procession of Nissan cars was organized on April 11, 2010 at Silverstone Circuit, United Kingdom.

For those into racing, the Nismo GT LSD has been used for various models from Nissan, including the Nissan stagea s15. Tried and tested in Japan, this motor part is used by race drivers on the international circuit, in Super Taiku, tuning car racing, on the street, circuit attack and also drifting. In this professionally manufactured unit, the generation torque is equally distributed to the right and left shaft unlike imprecisely manufactured LSDs. Smooth steering during acceleration or braking is a feature of this LSD used in Nissan stagea s15.

Nissan stagea, with its healthy fuel consumption, is probably one of the one of the best track cars you could drive and has less gadgetry to go wrong too. Indeed, it is not one of the ordinary beast cars from the video games but a lean, mean purring beauty.
