Single Roadster Infiniti: new imagesAugust 15, 2018
Infiniti showed several images of the retrofuturistic single-seat roadster, without accompanying them with any additional information. It is still only known that the prototype will receive an electric power unit, and its public debut will take place on August 26 at the Pebble Beach Elegance Competition.
The new concept car will be part of a series of concepts, which already includes the “vintage” electric prototype 9 and demonstrates the vector of development of the Japanese brand Q Inspiration styling. According to the designers, the roadster will become “the physical embodiment of the electrified future.”
The concept car Prototype 9 debuted in August last year. The car was dedicated to racing cars of the 1940s, although the company does not have anything to do with this period, since it was founded in 1989. Prototype 9 received a power unit from Nissan Leaf (150 horsepower and 320 Nm of torque), thanks to which it can accelerate to “hundreds” in 5.5 seconds. The maximum speed of the retroelectrocar is 170 kilometers per hour.
Infiniti Q Inspiration, equipped with a turbo engine with variable compression ratio and the system of autonomous driving ProPilot the next generation, demonstrates the new “language of the form” of the brand. In accordance with the new concept, the design of the car combines the style of the classic sedan and the proportions of the coupe.
