Subaru Vivio

Subaru Vivio Concept Car

This two-seat concept car is a mystery. We know it was drivable and had a two-cylinder engine under its fiberglass body. The engine was water-cooled and supercharged.

The Vivio concept was built on a Rex platform – a micro-car introduced in Japan in 1971. The 1992 successor of the Rex bore the Vivio name.

We’ll explore more of the attic’s treasures in the next issue of Drive.

Plus, we uncover the attic’s Subaru performance cars in the next Drive Performance magazine, scheduled to be mailed in the fall. If you don’t receive Drive Performance magazine, sign up for a free subscription at
