Infiniti Concept Debut for Pebble Beach
Infiniti will bring a retro-flavored race car concept to the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance later this month. The heritage-inspired one-off prototype melds the character of early Grand Prix machines with the brand’s “Powerful Elegance” design language.
“It started as a simple thought: What if we found a car, down at the southern tip of Japan, buried deep in the barn, hidden from all eyes for 70 years?” commented Infiniti’s senior vice president of Global Design, Alfonso Albaisa, “What if in this car we found the seed of passion planted during our first Japanese Grand Prix and the power and artistry of Infiniti today? What would this discovery look like?”
Infiniti further indicated the racer’s powertrain features “the fusion of advanced EV technology.” Exactly what that means in terms of its real-world motivation remains a mystery for the moment.
