HISTORY BEHIND THE DESIGN
When introduced, the Subaru XT was called “the ultimate in jazzy design”, in contrast to Subaru’s older “cheap and ugly” offerings. The extreme wedge body shape was possible due to the engine’s flat horizontally opposed cylinder layout shared by all Subarus. The XT is an icon in its own right with almost every aspect of its existence stretching too far into the future to really be appreciated by 1980s folk from ride height adjustment to a jet-like digital cluster.
THE FLASHY 80’S STYLE
Bright neon colours, compact cassettes, VHS. Just a few things that belong to the eighties tag. Our number-one series “Eighties Sunset” combines visual appeal of synthwave inspired aesthetic with remarkable interior designs of the golden era automotive world. Unsurpassed amount of detail and period-defining colorimetry creates incurable nostalgia with its own identity. In the artwork you can see iconic digital cluster, asymmetrical spokes steering wheel, OE radio and many more details that we took our time to do.
