Subaru Leone Car Chase in "Double Clutch"

So it’s Tuesday morning. You aren’t really gonna do work, are you? We know you’d rather stick it to Tha Man and watch a clip from the 1978 movie Double Clutch, featuring two vintage Subarus duking it out!

We have no idea what the rest of the movie is about, but in this clip the bad guy makes his escape in a rally-inspired Subaru Leone RX. Our hero is forced to jump into a four door Leone and give chase. When the pursuit veers off road, the director even gets a close up shot of him shifting into 4WD mode. How’s that for product placement?

Other things to notice: the groovetastic 70s soundtrack, a Nissan Cherry X-1R in the background, and the wakaba mark on the hero’s car. Well, what are you waiting for? Hit play and sit back for six minutes of pure Subie car chase action!

Thanks to Kostamojen for the tip!

    Also note the sticker visible through the back window of the bad guy’s car – looks like a shaken sticker for 1978 (Shōwa 53)!

    Ahahaha! Awesome.

    And for the first time, I finally get my answer on the proper installation of the Begining driver magnets. Very cool.

    Wow, the Japan driver’s manual must be an interesting read if it has pursuit maneuvers in it!

    I never knew you could get 4wd on a non-wagon that early, either.
