I'm not going to lie to you, friends. When I first saw this listing for what appeared to be a Nissan GT-R wagon, I started screaming and squealing like I did at my first One Direction concert like a 13-year-old girl at her first One Direction concert. Then I started thinking of all the ways I could line up the financing so I could buy it for myself.

But then I realized that something didn't seem right here! I began to suspect that it wasn't actually a GT-R at all, so I put my keen investigative journalism skills to use and took a closer look.

My suspicions were confirmed when I saw the interior shot. That's pretty decidedly not the inside of a GT-R. So while it looks awesome, it's not the real deal. Know what else tipped me off? That it's called a "Nissan Skyline GTR Stagea M35" in the auction. I'm like Bob Woodward up in this game, y'all.

It turns out we've written about this car before. This is a JDM Nissan Stagea wagon that's been modified to look like Nissan's baddest performance car, at least from the front.

It looks like this particular pseudo GT-R wagon is for sale on the Portugese car classifieds website Stand Virtual where it's going for 35,000 euros, or about $45,000 in 'Murrican dollars.

It's a decently convincing job overall, as long as you don't let anyone get a close look at it or let them inside. Definitely, definitely don't let anyone sit inside.

So what say you, Jalopfriends? Would you pay $45 grand for an imitation GT-R wagon?

And instead of this fake stuff, can somebody please make a real GT-R wagon? I think you could command quite a bit of money for a legit one.

GTR or not, the Stagea is one bad ass wagon that we never got here in The States. Underneath the Stagea is all GTR anyways. There's tons of crazy horsepower turbo wagons running around in other countries. They've also done R34 front end conversions on them before. So this is just the next step. It's not as much of a "fake" as you might think.
