Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge Concept first image, #F1Q50 to see more
Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge concept now has form with a first image made available by the company. A world premiere is scheduled at the 2014 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit during a press conference.
“From our shared passion for performance with Infiniti Red Bull Racing grew a collective desire to produce a vision of what a high-performance Infiniti Q50 could look like,” said Alfonso Albaisa, Infiniti design team. “The design has a number of distinctive Formula One inspired touches. In particular, the sculpted front wing assembly and the rear aerodynamic packaging take their cues from the RB9 race car,” added Albaisa.
With focus on aerodynamics, bodywork components have been redesigned and carbon fibre is in use. Q50 Eau Rouge is lower and wider though roof and door profiles remain unchanged from the production Q50. Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge wears a deep and detailed carbon fibre front splitter, rear diffuser and side sill skirts, carbon fibre roof and door mirror casings. The vehicle sits on 21-inch lightweight forged alloy wheels, and a dual-exit exhaust sports system below a large integrated rear spoiler.
Through social media channels, Infiniti is empowering fans to unveil the all-new Q50 Eau Rouge concept car ahead of its official launch at the Detroit Motor Show. Starting from today, fans can share their views and comments through social media channels like Twitter (hashtag #F1Q50), Facebook and Weibo. The more activity there is, the quicker fans will build the concept image in a virtual garage. Follow the car’s progress here.
