My love of vans is no secret. To me there's just something great about a vehicle that can carry car parts, family members, or your bros around town in comfort and style. Whether it's the squarish Toyota HIACE or the sleek modern vans from Japan, I'm crazy for these things. In Japan, there's one company in particular that's becoming the king of dressing up Honda's vans and compact cars - Noblesse. The Honda Fit, the Step Wagon, and even the new Insight have all been given the Noblesse touch, and their newest project is this RB3 Honda Odyssey Absolute. Fresh off the showroom floor, the Noblesse boys brought the new Odyssey in for some work. In keeping with their past projects, the Noblesse Odyssey has a simple, classy look to it. As with any project, the first step was bring it down to an acceptable ride height. The set of V-Vision coilovers seem to have done the job well.
Next up would be to fill the fenders with some proper wheels. The wheels in this shot are Rojam Dearest, 19"x9J +40 all around.
The aero parts are from Noblesse's LUX series. Fittingly, they chose an Odyssey owner's meeting to debut the new demo car. I'm sure you'll agree that the kit perfectly complements the sleek lines of the van.
The stylish four-tip exhaust system is also a Noblesse original. Same goes for the rear bumper spoiler, which is made specially to fit the new exhaust.
The front grill is another one of Noblesse's offerings for the new Odyssey.
Let's get this over with right now: This isn't really a Nissan GT-R wagon. That said, it is a decidedly artful conversion of the Japanese automaker's M35 series Stagea wagon, a JDM load-lugger it produced from 2001 to 2007. Available in both rear- and all-wheel drive with a variety of V6 powerplants, the now-dead Stagea has been called the "GT-R Wagon" by many enthusiasts.
Spotted at Nagoya Auto Trend this weekend, this particular Stagea looks to be a super-clean conversion, with a well-integrated R35 GT-R front-end that's been carried through along the bodysides, with factory-like rocker panel indents and modestly rear quarter panels to keep the theme.
While we don't have information about what lurks underneath, the folks at GTRBlog speculate that the wagon could have something interesting like a stroked VQ-series V6 with a twin-turbo kit. Given the apparent high level of finish on the outside, we would hope for nothing less. Check out the galleries below for more shots of both the GT-R and Stagea wagons...
