The Subaru SVX was, and still is the most unorthodox car from
Subaru. It was built to raise Subaru's profile and lift them
out of the budget-car-only category.
The unusual, head-turning styling of the Subaru SVX was penned
by Giorgetto Giugiaro of ItalDesign. It featured an unusual,
aircraft-inspired "glass-to-glass canopy" with 2-piece
power side windows similar to those sometimes found on exotic
supercars. The slippery, wedge shaped profile helped the SVX
achieve a low drag coefficient of just .29cd.
Powering the Subaru SVX was a 3.3 litre flat-6 cylinder. This
engine featured dual overhead camshafts and 4 valves per cylinder.
At 5,400 rpm it developed 230 horsepower, while at 4,400 rpm
it produced 228 ft/lbs (309 Nm) or torque. The SVX was fitted
with only one transmission choice, a 4-speed automatic. This
sent the power to all four wheels. Although for 1994 Subaru
offered a cheaper FWD only version. However this model proved
unpopular with buyers and was dropped after only one year.
