The luxury arm from Nissan, Infiniti, is preparing for the 2017 Geneva Motor Show with an interesting concept car in the shape of the Q60 Black S, the model being recently previewed in the first details and photos presented below.
We are looking here at an F1-style model which is set to come with a lot of sports features, advanced aerodynamics and sheer performance under the hood.
The car`s main highlight remains its powertrain, the model coming with a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine and Renault`s F`-Style KERS motor generator, with an overall of 500 horsepower. Tommasso Volpe, Director of Global Motorsport at Infiniti explains the necessity of a durable partnership like the one closed with Renault:
“We’re very serious about our involvement in F1. We want the Black S to be seen as the road-going embodiment of our technical partnership with Renault. We are developing the power unit now, a big challenge because our car is already tightly packaged. But indications of success are good.”
The high-performance drivetrain uses as well a lithium-ion battery pack which restores the energy gathered from braking and exhaust gas heat, allowing thus for increase response in different situations.
As for the car`s exterior design, this one was also highlighted by Mat Weaver, European design director, stating ”This is a true ‘form follows function’ job that reflects the aesthetics of the Black S’s race-bred engineering. The carbon fibre components and the aerodynamic features fit well with the car’s high performance, and our partner’s racing heritage.”
The full details with the concept remain hidden at the moment, but we should be able to find out more next week, in Geneva.
