Infiniti seems to move on with production plans for the Q50 Eau Rouge dynamic sedan, according to a company source with knowledge of the plans.
The Eau Rouge concept was an astonishing delight, featuring under its hood a GT-R beating heart – a 3.8 liter V6 petrol twin turbocharged unit that churns out 542 HP (404 kW) at 6,400 rpm and 628 Nm (463 lb-ft) of torque.
“At this stage it would take more to stop the car getting made than to start things,” found out Auto Express. “There is a real buzz about it.”
As Formula One World Champion Sebastian Vettel is deeply involved in the development of the car, Infiniti recently showcased a video of the F1 champ driving the car at Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire.
Also, while the name Eau Rouge could make it into series production, design director Alfonso Albaisa says other colors would be available and the design of the car would go on unchanged. Also, the name is a direct reference to a famous Spa-Francorchamps turn, further emphasizing the model’s connection to the world of Formula 1.
