Japanese manufacturer Infiniti finally abandoned the idea of ​​producing and marketing the Q60 Project Black S, first presented at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, and each appearance of which has since fueled rumors of a hypothetical arrival on the market.

This concept, developed by infiniti (a Nissan subsidiary) in collaboration with the Renault Sport F1 Team, was to offer the best that the premium brand had to offer in terms of performance, a vehicle in fact following in the footsteps of the Q50 Eau Rouge concept presented. a few years earlier by the manufacturer.

Under its body-built body, the Infiniti Q60 Project Black S housed a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 unit developing around 500 hp, associated with hybrid technology comprising two electric motors as well as an ERS (energy recovery system): a package inspired by the technology then used on Formula 1 cars from the diamond manufacturer.

The Infiniti Q60 Project Black S dossier has regularly returned to the top of the pile since its initial presentation, and in 2018 and again in 2019 the manufacturer still claimed to carry out tests to validate a possible production launch. The head of the competition and performance division of Infiniti, Tommaso Volpe, was even confident about the favorable outcome to be given to the case.

Wrong therefore, since this special project will never finally pass the stage of a simple prototype, as confirmed this Tuesday the spokesperson for the brand, Kyle Bazemore, with Automotive News. Those who had fallen for this rather spectacular model, can only deplore it.
