Infiniti To Reveal Formula One Inspired Concept At Detroit Show
Hong Kong ‚Äď Infiniti will reveal a Formula One inspired concept car based on the Q50 premium sports saloon at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
The concept car represents Infiniti‚Äôs design vision of a high performance variant of Q50. Called ‚ÄėQ50 Eau Rouge‚Äô, 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‚Äôs partnership with Formula One world championship-winning team Infiniti Red Bull Racing.
‚ÄúPerformance is a key pillar of Infiniti‚Äôs 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,‚ÄĚ said Alfonso Albaisa, Infiniti‚Äôs Executive Design Director.
