Subaru XT

The video clip features an old, American TV advert for the XT from the 80s.

The Subaru XT is a sporty, wedge-shaped, 2-door coupe that was produced between 1985 and 1991. In Japan it was named the Alcyone and in Australia and New Zealand was known as the Vortex. In Europe and North America it was badged as an XT.

The SVX replaced the XT in 1992, although it doesn't look half as exciting and I much prefer the wedge shape.

A red XT featured in the 80s movie Big which starred Tom Hanks. The character Susan (played by Elizabeth Perkins) can be seen driving the small boy version of Joshua Baskin back home in the XT.
