Subaru of America’s 250- horsepower Amadeus concept sport wagon — the hit of the 1992 Tokyo Motor Show.

The Amadeus is an all-wheel-drive sport wagon based on the exciting Subaru SVX platform and includes the luxury sports coupe’s controversial “window-within-a-window” design.

Performance and safety features include a five-speed automatic transmission, four-wheel steering, electronic navigation system, heads-up instrument display, distance-monitoring system and a 3.3- liter horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine.

“We took the Subaru SVX platform, which is the epitome of what we know about building cars, and applied it to one of the most traditional Subaru vehicles: the all-wheel drive station wagon,” explained Chris Wackman, Subaru, vice president marketing.
