First pictures of the Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge revealed

After posting a teaser on YouTubelast month, Infiniti has now released the first pictures of its upcoming concept car, the Q50 Eau Rouge. Named after the uphill portion of Belgium’s Spa-Francorchamps Formula One circuit, the sports sedan will be unveiled at the 2014 Detroit Motor Show, this month.

Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge

Infiniti's executive design director, Alfonso Albaisa said, “From our shared passion for performance with Infiniti Red Bull Racing grew a collective desire to produce a vision of what a high-performance Infiniti Q50 could look like. The design has a number of distinctive Formula One inspired touches. In particular, the sculpted front wing assembly and the rear aerodynamic packaging take their cues from the RB9 race car.”

   

The Eau Rouge edition looks similar to Q50 sedan though it is much lower, wider and lighter. Bodywork components have been aerodynamically redesigned with only the roof and door profiles being carried over from the sedan. The front of the Q50 Eau Rouge features a carbon fibre bumper with huge air intakes and a pair of air vents in the bonnet. Infiniti says that the Q50 Eau Rouge ‘draws inspiration for its aerodynamic design from the technical collaboration between Infiniti and the four-time Formula One World Champions, Infiniti Red Bull Racing.’ The car also uses carbon fibre for the roof, side sills and the door mirrors. The rear features a carbon fibre rear splitter, dual exhaust and a large rear spoiler. 

Engine specifications won’t be available till the official unveiling, though we can expect an upgraded version of the 3.7-litre V6 producing 328bhp to be available in the Q50 sedan.
