The Q60 Project Black S concept highlights the technical partnership between Infiniti and Renault F1 team.
Meet the Infiniti Q60 Project Black S – a concept born out of the partnership between Infiniti and Renault Sport F1 team. Based on the regular two-door Q60 coupe, the Project Black S concept adds some F1 wizardry, including KERS, to the car along with a race-car inspired exterior design.
The Project Black S will make its debut at the upcoming 2017 Geneva Motor show. And while it's only a concept model, it has some serious stuff under the hood. Of course, it's technical specification are same as the Q60 Coupe, meaning it will have a 3.0-litre turbo V6. However, compared to the standard car’s peak power output of 400bhp, this will produce a 100bhp more! That’s thanks to F1 derived KERS (Kinetic Energy Recuperation System) that comes fitted with the Project Black S. For those of you who want to have a little idea about what the KERS is, here is a quick explanation - it stores energy from the exhausts and brakes, which is usually wasted, to spin the turbos when the driver is off-throttle.
Apart from the F1 tech, the concept car also gets some intense body work over the standard Q60. For starters, it comes with race-car like wings and splitters, massive wheel arches with 21-inch wheels and a twin-titanium exhaust setup. It definitely looks a lot meaner, you’ve to say.
Now the only problem here is that the Q60 Project Black S is just a concept and there’s no confirmation if it’ll ever enter production.
