Infiniti Q60 Concept First Photo: Are You Impressed?
Infiniti decided to introduce the Q60 Concept ahead of the 2015 NAIAS premiere. The sleek two-door coupe will be officially unveiled at the Cobo Center on January 13th. This preview photo shows the new design approach of the Infiniti Q60 Concept. Although we can’t see all the novelties on the sole photo, it’s clear that the coupe is a very welcome refreshment of the Infiniti range.
The exterior design of the concept coupe is new, but it hasn’t departed from the brand’s DNA. There are some styling cues which link the Infiniti Q60 Concept with the Q80 Inspiration. Besides this, the new concept inherited some of the unique details from the Formula One racing car.
The appearance of the Infiniti Q60 Concept is very assertive and powerful. The overall body shape is sporty and smooth. Thanks to the attractive roofline and wide stance the 2+2 coupe looks like a thoroughbred racer. Add a large grille, narrow headlights, huge, distinctive air intakes and you’ll have a very aggressive front fascia. The car’s narrow headlights and side mirrors as well as pronounced wheel arcs contribute to the overall bold appearance.
Alfonso Albaisa, Infiniti Executive Design Director said:
“The Q80 Inspiration was an indication of Infiniti’s future design language. 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 sporty spirit of the exterior is kept inside, too, but the coupe’s cabin proves that the Q60 Concept belongs to the luxury stratum. With hand-stitched leather and carbon fiber accents, the car will underline that aims to be a perfect blend of performance and luxury. Different types of leather, according to the automaker, are used to balance comfort and support, as well as the entire cabin.
The Infiniti Q60 Concept is a paragon of the upcoming production version. This bold premium performance coupe might be just what the brand needed to popularize its entire lineup.
As we said, the Infiniti Q60 Concept will have its debut at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show on January 13th.
