The F1-inspired Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge to be revealed in Detroit

For the 2013 Formula One season, Infiniti dropped the regular sponsor label and became the title sponsor and strategic partner with Red Bull Racing. That four-year deal changed the team’s name to Infiniti Red Bull Racing at a time when Sebastian Vettel set records destroying the rest of the Formula One field on his way to becoming a four-time World Champion.

When the Infiniti and Red Bull Racing agreement was made, there was plenty of talk that their partnership would be more technologically focused, as opposed to strictly a marketing venture. Development projects were hinted at and became a reality when their No. 1 team driver, Vettel became Infiniti’s Director of Performance.

Vettel has played a part in providing some input and testing in the new Infiniti Q50. as well being influential throughout the entire inception of the Infiniti Q30 concept. As we head towards the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, it seems that Red Bull Racing and Vettel have their hands all over Infiniti’s latest creation the premium sports sedan that’s to be named the Q50 Eau Rouge.

For those unfamiliar with the name the Eau Rouge is the high-speed left hand corner at Formula One’s Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium. It’s always a tricky corner to handle, as drivers need to go flat out for a fast run onto the straight at speeds that can come close to 300 km/h.

The race inspired theme of the Q50 Eau Rouge brings the Infiniti and Red Bull Racing’s partnership full circle. The Infiniti Q50 has already received plenty of attention and accolades and Infiniti has taken it one-step further with the announcement of this high-performance variant.

Performance is a key pillar of Infiniti’s DNA, and this car expresses a deepened design interpretation of that. The Q50, with an abundance of technologies, provides a great basis for an extreme performance version, embodied in the design of Q50 Eau Rouge, said Alfonso Albaisa, Infiniti’s Executive Design Director.

We’ve only been privy to a little information and one picture ahead of the early January unveiling, but the Q50 Eau Rouge blends road car technology with a motorsport vision. The new creation is an exact parallel of the working relationship and partnership between Infiniti and Red Bull Racing.

The race-inspired sedan will feature aerodynamic styling and design elements that come from a Red Bull Racing influence. What we can see are sporty carbon fibre side mirrors and a new splitter in their newly released image. Considering that the Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge is a racing-inspired sedan, we would naturally expect a bump in horsepower (328) and torque (269 lb.-ft.), but no figures have been revealed.

The Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge will be unveiled on press day at the NAIAS in Detroit, so stay tuned for more information as it comes out.
