Will search for pictures.
Another game featuring the Subaru 360:
edit: it did
Yes, it did and quite lot in fact. Fastest version was marketed as Subaru 360 Young SS in 1968-1970, which featured 4 speed gearbox and 36hp 356cc engine. That's 100hp per liter. Probably the racing cars were close to that as the SS version gets it peak hp at 7000rpm and max revs are 8000 rpm. maximum torque is reached at 6200 rpm, so it's really high tune for a street car.
It was homologated to Class GT (group 3 or 4 after homologation paper layout redesign in 1967) in 1964 and to Class T (which again was group 2 after 1967) in 1966. As the car weights only 385-425kg, (so most likely 480kg in game with standard driver) it well be competitive in under 500cc class.
I did found it also from sketchup warehouse, which could be easier to convert and has less hassle with 3d model origin (the GTA-SA model comes originally from Forza Motorsport 7, it seems.)
