The SVX is a curious car in that it came out of the blue from Subaru. Though I lie company had previously produced their XT Coupe which ran from 1985 to 1990, the car was not a beauty, yet in most ways the 1991 SVX made up for Dial with Italian styling. Uniquely it used glass all around with hidden pillars, which gave it great visibility for such a low-slung supercar. The SVX's drive train was another one-off, featuring a flat-six engine mounted at the front and driving all four wheels. The torque was automatically split between front and rear wheels depending on grip, and MacPherson struts at each corner helped with space allocation for the 4WD set-up. Handling was superb and the traction phenomenal, with minimal body roll in corners. Alas, sales weren't good for the car, even when cheaper models were introduced, and by 1996 it had gone.
