Infiniti revealed its Q60 Concept, the precursor to a premium sports coupe that will go into production in 2016 at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit this morning. Q60 Concept was introduced by Roland Krueger, President of Infiniti Motor Company, Ltd, in his first appearance representing the company on an auto show stage.
Speaking about this new concept, Krueger said, “One look and it is clear: Q60 Concept is a strong statement from Infiniti designers that the exhilaration is real. Design is a key driver for developing a strong brand. Q60 Concept is another building block in Infiniti’s quest to refresh its portfolio with a strong and consistent design language. And in 2016, we will launch a new model heavily inspired by the Q60 Concept.”
Living up to its sports car image, the Q60 Concept showcases superior power from the next-generation 3.0-liter V6 engine with direct injection and twin-turbocharging – part of a new family of lighter, smaller, more efficient, and more powerful engines.
In terms of design, the Q60 Concept shows a sweeping, angular exterior that underlines its power and performance intentions, the two-door coupe in concept form hints at the captivating dynamics that await premium customers. On the outside, the Q60 Concept boasts a road-hugging stance etched out by sharp character creases and deep recesses in the body side. The hallmark Infiniti headlamp gives the coupe a high-tech stare, with fine fiber-optics like the lines of the iris radiating from the pupil. With its new design, sure sense of performance, and painstaking finish to the last detail, the Q60 Concept paves the way for Infiniti’s premium sports coupe to come.
Inside, the high-quality finishes are seen and felt in the smallest detail, from the handcrafted leather-wrapped instrument panel and steering wheel to the premium leather and quilted stitching of the seats.
