Infiniti reveals Q50 Eau Rouge
The high-performance design concept is based on Infiniti’s Q50 premium sports saloon and draws inspiration for aerodynamic design from the technical collaboration between Infiniti and four-time Formula One World Champions Infiniti Red Bull Racing.
The carmaker says that only the roof and door profiles remain unchanged from the production Q50 and all the major bodywork components have been redesigned with aerodynamics in mind and manufactured carbon fibre. The Q50 Eau Rouge is also lower and wider.
Design details include a deep carbon fibre front splitter, rear diffuser and side sill skirts; carbon fibre roof and door mirror casings; 21-inch lightweight forged alloy wheels and a dual-exit exhaust sports system below a large integrated rear spoiler.
Executive design director Alfonso Albaisa said: ‘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.
‘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.
