Infiniti is to bring an F1-style hybrid turbo set up to the road. It’s expected to reveal its production-ready, performance hybrid Q60 Black S at this year’s Paris motor show in October, but it won’t be on sale until at least 2020.
The 500hp (370kW) Black S model will tap into the company’s collaboration with the Renault Sport Formula 1 team. A twin-turbo V6 engine will be paired with an energy recovery system (ERS) that re-deploys captured energy to augment power and torque.
The company claims it will be the first accessible road car using up-to-date F1 tech, given the Mercedes-AMG Project One’s prohibitive price.
