The Subaru Alcyone SVX was released in Japan in 1991 and produced until 1996. Subaru’s fastidiousness is evident in the design of the glass-to-glass round canopy. It is fitted with a water-cooled horizontally opposed 6-cylinder engine.
It featured Subaru’s first variable torque distribution electronically controlled four-wheel drive (VTD-4WD). The 3.3-liter flat six DOHC is normally aspirated and generates 236hp at 6,000 rpm and 227.8 lb-ft of torque.
The SVX features an electronically controlled lockup 4-speed automatic transmission. The suspension is provided by struts on both front and rear wheels. Brakes are ventilated discs on both sets of wheels. It drives just like a GT coupe, providing a comfortable ride and easy handling.
It is not very good at aggressive driving because of its heavy weight, but can display its ability in high-speed cruising. Great skill will be needed to squeeze the best speed out of it.
