I’m not really sure why, but the Subaru SVX has definitely become my latest automotive curiosity over the last week or so. Yes, I know it only ever came with a boring 4-speed auto, but it’s a fascinating relic from the Japanese bubble era. Check out this video to see why it’s so cool! What we have here is an incredibly sexy Giugaro-designed sports coupe with a 3.3-liter six-cylinder Boxer engine and many of the same luxury features you’d find on a Lexus from the same era. It also weighs more than 3,500 pounds. That’s amazing! Could you really see Subaru coming out with a car like this today? It’s a far cry from the BRZ, and even that’s an oddball by normal Fuji Heavy standards.
