Infiniti has raised the curtain on its vision of a premium sports coupe, ahead of the 2015 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, US on January 13.
The striking Q60 Concept is poised to entice coupe fans with its sharp contours and hand-crafted interior, while at the same time suggesting performance and power to match, said a statement.
The Q60 Concept sits low and wide in a road-hugging stance hinting at exceptional dynamics and driving pleasure, it said.
The low roofline and quilted leather seats remind one of the elegant full-size Q80 Inspiration, while the aerodynamic gills behind the front wheel arches are inherited from the Q50 Eau Rouge sports sedan concept.
Alfonso Albaisa, Infiniti executive design director, said: “The Q80 Inspiration was an indication of Infiniti’s future design language. The Q60 Concept is the next step in the journey.
“The sweeping lines of the Q80 Inspiration gave the Q60 Concept its coupe silhouette and looks while the Formula One-inspired touches from the Q50 Eau Rouge endowed the coupe with its sports personality.”
Inspired by jet turbine blades, the black spokes in a combination of mattes and chromes stretch to the edge of the 21-inch wheel, further emphasises how ‘planted’ the coupe is.
The high-quality ambience inside speaks of Infiniti’s meticulous attention to detail, clearly evident from the impeccable hand-stitched leather to the precise treatment of the carbon fibre accents.
As a foreshadowing of the next generation of Infiniti’s premium sports coupe, the Q60 Concept makes use of taut lines and sports car cues to convey exceptional stance and presence.
