    Detroit Auto Show Reveal: Infiniti Q60 Concept

      Infiniti finally pulled the sheet off of the Q60 Concept allowing us a full view of all sides and inside.

    Infiniti finally pulled the sheet off of the Q60 Concept today at the Detroit Auto Show, allowing us a full view of all sides and inside.

    The low slung coupe is the future design and engineering direction for Infiniti. The Q60 will be put into production in a few years time and will be the debut model for a new family of turbo-charged, direct injected engines. We've heard that both 4-cylinder and 6-cylinder engines will be available but very little else was offered from a technical level.

    The interior has hand stitched leather with carbon fiber accents and is surprisingly roomy for a 2 by 2 coupe.

    The exterior features LED lighting and light piping, even the badge is back lit in a bright white.

    The production version will start up for 2016 which means that we will see this car again in the next year or so at one of the auto shows.

    The power to captivate: Infiniti Q60 Concept

    • Infiniti reveals two-door concept for a future sports coupe
    • Design draws cues from latest Infiniti models and Formula One
    • Handmade leather finishes, Alcantara®, and carbon fiber feature in the bespoke interior

    HONG KONG – Ahead of the 2015 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, Infiniti raises the curtain on its vision of a premium sports coupe.

    The striking Q60 Concept is poised to entice coupe fans with its sharp contours and hand-crafted interior, while at the same time suggesting performance and power to match. Result: a no-compromise fusion of looks and speed.

    The Q60 Concept sits low and wide in a road-hugging stance hinting at exceptional dynamics and driving pleasure.

    While the Q60 Concept is fresh and original, it evokes a sense of déjà vu at times with whiffs and traces of the Q80 Inspiration (shown this past October at the Paris Motor Show) evident in its finest details.

    The audaciously low roofline and quilted leather seats remind one of the elegant full-size Q80 Inspiration, while the aerodynamic gills behind the front wheel arches are inherited from the Q50 Eau Rouge sports saloon concept.

    "The Q80 Inspiration was an indication of Infiniti's future design language," said Alfonso Albaisa, Infiniti Executive Design Director. "The Q60 Concept is the next step in the journey. The sweeping lines of the Q80 Inspiration gave the Q60 Concept its coupe silhouette and looks while the Formula One-inspired touches from the Q50 Eau Rouge endowed the coupe with its sports personality."

    The visual excitement in the edgy lines of the concept is set off by the custom 21-inch wheels, which take up the entire wheel arch. Inspired by jet turbine blades, the black spokes in a combination of mattes and chromes stretch to the edge of the wheel, further emphasizing how "planted" the coupe is.

    The high-quality ambience inside speaks of Infiniti's meticulous attention to detail, clearly evident from the impeccable hand-stitched leather to the precise treatment of the carbon fiber accents.

    Infiniti designers use a variety of leathers on the seats to provide just the perfect balance of comfort and support as befits a premium sports coupe. They also make the Q60 Concept a genuine "2+2" coupe by giving rear passengers more legroom through the use of genuine sport seats.

    As a foreshadowing of the next generation of Infiniti's premium sports coupe, the Q60 Concept makes use of taut lines and sports car cues to convey exceptional stance and presence.

    See the Q60 Concept in the metal when Infiniti holds its 2015 NAIAS press conference at 8:10 a.m. ET on Tuesday, January 13.

    This just... doesn't do anything for me. Each time I look at it, I expect to feel something and there's nothing there. No passion, no emotion, no soul. Give me the old G37, A5, 4-Series, ATS... hell, even the RC with its confused lighting elements, and I can find something to... ignite a fire inside me. The nicest thing I can say about this car is that the taillights sort of resemble an Alfa's. The rest is completely clinical.

    Blah, Bland, just Mehhhh when walking by. Reminds me of all the bland Nissan Cars. I think the buying public will thumb their nose at this one.
