#projectblacks explores the potential for a new #infiniti high-performance model line • Radical reinterpretation of the #infiniti Q60 coupe hints at performance hybrid powertrain, inspired by Formula One energy recovery systems • Extensive use of carbon fiber for revised design that enhances aerodynamic performance and cooling • Makes its public debut at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show GENEVA – INFINITI’s #projectblacks explores the potential for a new #infiniti performance grade, featuring unique-for-the-road technology inspired by Formula One. Suggesting a radical reinterpretation of the #infiniti Q60 coupe, the #projectblacks features a stand-out, aerodynamically-optimized new design. It also hints at how a performance hybrid powertrain – developed in close collaboration with the #renaultsport Formula One Team – could significantly enhance the performance and dynamics of an #infiniti production car. The performance hybrid powertrain being explored through #projectblacks features an ‘energy recovery system’ (ERS) to harvest energy, deploying recovered electric power to boost power and torque. The result is instant, significant, lag-free acceleration. Inspired by the dual-hybrid system proven in Formula One, the technology does not yet exist in a current road car.
