Subaru SVX PPG Pace Car

Subaru SVX – 1992 PPG Pace Car

This Subaru SVX has a cult following among SVX owners.


I couldn’t find any track history of this car. The SVX Pace Car appeared publicly at a SVX owner’s meet in 2009. Hundreds of SVX enthusiasts saw the car in person and took photographs. One owner uploaded a walk around video on youtube.


While it didn’t have any extensive body work like many of the earlier Pace Cars, it was sprayed in an unforgettable silver-to-purple gradient and has a matching interior. The AWD SVX is powered by a 260hp turbocharged overhead cam V-6 engine.
