Ahead of the Detroit Motor Show 2015 kicking off, the Infiniti Q60 Concept has been unveiled. Despite being purely a concept at this stage, there are suggestions that it could be previewing Infiniti’s upcoming rival to the BMW 4-Series range.
From a design standpoint, the Infiniti Q60 Concept draws heavily on the Q80 Inspiration and as a result, features similar flowing lines alongside a menacing and bold front fascia. Additionally, similar elements to the Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge Concept can be found across the Q60 particularly with the similar gills behind the front wheel arches.
Another key design element of the Infiniti Q60 Concept are the large, 21-inch wheels which have been inspired by jet turbine blades and incorporate black spokes with hints of chrome and matte finishes. As the car has been designed as a sporty, 2+2 coupe, Infiniti designers also focused heavily on the car’s cabin. With that in mind, sport seats have been installed for front and rear occupants alongside a variety of different quilted leathers.
Discussing the car, Infiniti executive design director Alfonso Albaisa 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 Infiniti Q60 Concept will celebrate its world debut at a press conference at 8:10am local time on January 13th in Detroit.
