A car well ahead of its times way then. Was equipped with a lot of goodies as standard, such as Turbo (the 1800cc engines), electronic trip meter and air suspension to name a few. Sadly it bombed.

Subaru's high-tech (sic) offering in 1985.
It had spaceship door handles, instrument cluster that tilted with the tiltable steering wheel and hill holder brake system, that blocked rolling backward when starting off uphill.
Also had a speed-sensitive electro-hydraulic powersteering which used a special fluid that could only be bought directly from Subaru at a higher price.

Correct, Ram sir and V16 it is indeed the XT, also sold in Japan as the Alcyone which also happens to be brightest star of the Pleiades star cluster after which Subaru is named. Alongwith the spaceship door handles it also boasted of mudguards which also helped to direct airflow, which helped it achieve a low Cd of only 0.29 .The Cd is the same as the 997 Porsche 911 although one can counter that the Porsche also has to have downforce.The XT Turbo also had a digital dash showing boost pressure,speed.,engine rpm and outside temperature.


The cars that the Japanese built in the 80's and 90's were indeed hi tech, boasting of some revolutionary features like four wheel steering,air supsension etc. Ram sir, can we have some more detailed info on the XT or in general any link about the Japanese sports cars of the 80's and 90's, it would be interesting to know about the tech incorporated in these cars.

ID 423: I'd love to present this in a different way to you guys for a change. Here's a link to a video of Goa Invasion in 1955. At the 5th second of footage there is a car which goes from left to right for a brief second in the video. Can someone identify the car for me? I am clueless - Image:Goa 1955 invasion.ogg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

EDIT: It looks to be something from the Chrysler stable?

At first I thought it was the 1945/46 Chevy Fleetline. Looks more like the Fleetmaster,as the car makes the turn to the left.

@sajo, the Chrysler 300 Letter series were all big V8 behemoths.
This ID:421 is a much smaller and lighter 4-cylinder coupe, not hailing from the US of A.



Do guess again.
