Infiniti released a second teaser for their new concept heading to Detroit next month. Said to be based off of the new Q50 sedan and named the Q50 Eau Rouge, the new concept will bow with Formula One inspiration, stemming from Infiniti’s recent pairing with Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull Racing.
The Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge could potentially hint at a new high-performance variant to the Q50 range, with the video suggesting that Red Bull Racing’s latest F1 technology will be found in the new model. And with Infiniti stepping up their game to rival the Europeans, this could hint at a possible BMW M3 fighter. But that’s just a possibility.
Either way, details were kept to a minimum. Check out the video teaser after the jump and allow your mind to ponder about.
Hong Kong – Infiniti will reveal a Formula One inspired concept car based on the Q50 premium sports sedan at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
The concept car represents Infiniti’s design vision of a high performance variant of Q50. Called “Q50 Eau Rouge,” the car is named after the world-famous corner at the Formula One track in Spa-Francorchamps, a corner which requires extraordinary strength, courage and commitment; it has seen some of the most incredible driving feats in Formula One history. For Infiniti, the Q50 Eau Rouge concept blends road car technology and a thoroughbred motorsport vision.
The Q50 Eau Rouge features aerodynamic styling treatments and design elements which are influenced by Infiniti’s partnership with Formula One world championship-winning team Infiniti Red Bull Racing.
“Performance is a key pillar of Infiniti’s DNA, and this car expresses a deepened design interpretation of that. The Q50, with an abundance of technologies, provides a great basis for an extreme performance version, embodied in the design of Q50 Eau Rouge,” said Alfonso Albaisa, Infiniti’s Executive Design Director.
