A concept car aiming to fuse the spirit of Formula One with Infiniti’s arresting design aesthetic of the Q50 – the premium sports sedan Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge gets teased at the 2014 NAIAS Detroit Motor Show.
The Q50 Eau Rouge features lower and wider bespoke aerodynamic carbon fiber bodywork, possessing genuine road presence inspired by muscularity, aerodynamics, refinement, and understated power. Johan de Nysschen, President of Infiniti Motor Company Ltd says, “If we built this car I would expect it to feature over 500hp and 600lb/ft of torque. Through our various alliance partners we have access to a range of engines featuring this performance capability which, with a fair amount of engineering effort, can be developed to exhibit Infiniti character and accommodated within the Q50 engine bay. The engine we are evaluating for the Q50 Eau Rouge is a big personality, V-cylinder engine with forced induction. I think our engineers have been waiting for a project like this.”

“The Q50 Eau Rouge is a combination of the seductive lines of the Q50 but with a fiercer design urge in keeping with a high-performance vehicle. The Q50 Eau Rouge is Infiniti to the power of four; like a bull with its shoulder muscles flexed, a bull in Infiniti clothing,” de Nysschen adds.
