|Months after its teaser, the Infiniti Q60 Concept Premium Sports Coupe has rolled out in the flesh at the NAIAS. The production version of the Infiniti Q60 is expected to roll out the very next year.|
Showing 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. The Infiniti Q60 Concept represents a strong statement from the company’s designers to exhibit real exhilaration. At the same time, Infiniti believes that design is a key driver for developing a strong auto brand. The Q60 Concept is another building block in Infiniti’s quest to refresh its portfolio with a strong and consistent design language.
Infiniti has indicated the expansion of its portfolio into smaller premium vehicles such as the upcoming production Q30, while also showing a tantalizing vision for a full-size sedan in the form of the Q80 Inspiration concept in Paris last October. The striking Q60 Concept signals Infiniti’s plans to bolster offerings in the middle of the product lineup.
Q60 Concept represents Infiniti’s next Premium Sports Coupe
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 headlight gives the coupe a high-tech stare, with fine fiber-optics like the lines of the iris radiating from the pupil.
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.
Living up to its sports car image, the Q60 Concept showcases ‘enough juice’ 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.
With its striking 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.
