Last year, Infiniti showed off their Infiniti Q60 Project Black S Coupe with Formula One technology hiding beneath its alluring dark shaded bodywork. Certainly one of many highlights from 12 months ago, why are we telling you about it 12 months too late?
At this year’s Geneva Motor Show, the black beauty returned once again and according to Stefan Weinmann, Global Communications for Infiniti, the bespoke coupe is still being considered as a production vehicle.
As of writing, reports suggest Infiniti is currently working on a fully-functioning prototype, but regarding an actual production-ready vehicle, Mr Weinmann reminded silent before stating the Infiniti Q60 Project Black S is an essential part of Infiniti’s future performance lineup.
Based on the Q60 Red Sport 400, the Infiniti Q60 Project Black S concept vehicle uses the 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 rated at 400 horsepower as well as an additional hybrid system developed in conjunction with the Renault Sport Formula One team to bring the total output to a cool 500 hp.
What else could possibly make the Infiniti Q60 Project Black S even more desirable?
Additionally, the desirable coupe is fitted with a high-performance titanium twin-exhaust system, lightweight 21-inch alloys, large fixed rear wing, wider tyres and enlarged air intakes.
If and when Infiniti decides to put the Infiniti Q60 Project Black S into production, it would certainly give both the BMW M4 and Audi RS5 a run for their money.
Although we’re madly in love with the blacked out Coupe, we don’t want to get too attached to it as we and the automotive world have been burnt in the past with Infiniti’s Eau Rouge concept.
