INFINITI Goes Dark With New Project Black S

INFINITI’s latest high-performance model has made its official debut at the Geneva International Motor Show this year, showcasing a masterful new concept that the automaker designed with the renowned sport car experts at Renault Sport Formula One.

Called Project Black S, this new INFINITI performance grade offers a more aerodynamic design, as well as a performance hybrid powertrain and other performance-focused features that “result [in] instant, significant, lag-free acceleration,” according to a recent press release.

“Project Black S is a daring and elevated representation of INFINITI's performance DNA. It expresses our desire to create cars that are designed to perform, marrying the potency of a high-performance powertrain with a muscular new design. This project has given us the opportunity to experiment with advanced materials to create a performance-inspired aesthetic that draws on INFINITI's motorsport ties through the Alliance," said Alfonso Albaisa, Executive Design Director, INFINITI.

This new concept could be the blueprint for a new “Black S” trim grade from the automaker, which will bring top-notch performance features to INFINITI’s lineup, such as a unique design aesthetic, higher-octane powertrains with increased torque and even new performance-oriented suspension systems.

A Q60 Black S?

The automaker believes that their popular Q60 sport coupe would be the best model to engage with Project Black S at these early stages, offering an “ideal platform” for the concept’s performance hybrid engine, as well as its other features like the new high-performance titanium twin exhaust system, wider performance tires and lightweight 21-inch alloy wheels.
