The Subaru SVX had the hallmarks of a successful performer on paper. Although they stuck with a sluggish and power-relieving gearbox, the SVX came with an all-wheel drivetrain, which could send 90% of the engine’s power to the front wheels for everyday driving or a 50:50 front/rear torque split for tough situations. distance. Also, it can accelerate to 60 mph within seven seconds and reach a top speed of 142 mph.
Imagine all that in a two- or four-door wagon with the same windows in the front and back as the SVX coupe. The result is the Subaru Amadeus, a hatchback that never got a chance to succeed after the SVX left the market after five years of production. The Amadeus was supposed to have a longer body and was more practical than the SVX. But since it’s an early 90’s Subaru, it has its fair share of unique designs.
For example, it has a large rear spoiler, two-tone paint, and a rear spoiler that connects to the roof rails. It also has 20 more horses under the hood, but the car gods had other plans. All hope of making an Amadeus disappeared when Subaru pulled the plug on the SVX, and the Outback would have been a different car if its parent Amadeus had had a chance at glory. Subaru introduced the Amadeus concept alongside the production SVX at the 1991 Tokyo Motor Show, but it didn’t take long for the automaker to realize that the Amadeus would never see the light of day.
