Subaru 360 Police Car
The first serious attempt at automobile production by Japan’s Fuji Heavy Industries, the Subaru 360 was aimed at entry-level buyers. Designed to conform to the “kei car” formula, which grants concessions and exemptions to very small vehicles, the 360 was, at its introduction, among the smallest cars in the world. While ideal for the Japanese market, the concept proved unpopular elsewhere in the world, where larger cars are the norm.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in August of 2010 at the Portola Hotel & Spa and Monterey Conference Center, Monterey, California.
25 bhp, 356 cc two-stroke inline twin-cylinder engine, four-speed manual transmission, torsion bar independent front and rear suspension, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 70.9".
