Featuring Formula One-inspired technology, Project Black S is an exploration of a new INFINITI high-performance model line. Developed in collaboration with the RenaultSport Formula One Team, Project Black S will be revealed for the first time globally at a special media event on the eve of the Geneva International Motor Show.
A radical reinterpretation of the Q60 coupe, Project Black S features a stand-out, aerodynamic design, and hints at how a unique-for-the-road performance hybrid powertrain could significantly enhance the dynamics of an Infiniti production car.
Infiniti is the premium car brand of (Renault-)Nissan, and for this car they partnered with the Renault Sport Formula One Team. The performance hybrid powertrain being explored through Project Black S, and it features an 'energy recovery system' (ERS) to harvest energy, deploying recovered electric power to boost power and torque. The result is instant, significant, lag-free acceleration. Inspired by the dual-hybrid system proven in Formula One, the technology does not yet exist in a current road car. Think a Nissan GTR is fast in "launch mode", wait till we see this! More details will follow on the eve of March 6th! We can't wait.
