What car was Jacky Chan driving in Canon Ball Run 1 ?

When I was a kid i thought it was a Toyota Starlet since it has a similar shape. Lately I watched it again, to my surprise it was a Subaru!

What Subaru model is it? 4WD? Turbo?

Love that movie!

It was a 4WD GL hatchback that was also a prototype car for subaru running a turbo setup, the car now resides up in washington at Western Washington University because of it was built by a professor for case studies in automotive designs for subaru.

I will try to find the pics of Quattro San sometime soon of what I have saved. They used to be up on the USMB but looks like the links are stale now.

They play this as the teams take off in the second film, like where bigfoot runs over a porsche.

What's the story on the GL 4WD turbo hatch ending up at Washington? Did the dude build it for them when it was brand new? Sounds like that car probably has a pretty cool story behind it. 8)
