The Sebastian Vettel-inspired Infiniti FX50 has broken cover – and the F1 world champion will unveil the concept car at next month's Frankfurt motor show.
As revealed by autocar.co.uk earlier this week, the Japanese manufacturer has designed a special version of the luxury SUV in collaboration with Vettel, who is a global company ambassador for Infiniti and drives an FX50 on the road.
The exterior appearance of the concept has echoes of the FX Limited Edition that was produced by Infiniti in 2010, but the concept has a restyled grille that is pinched in at the top corners. A similar grille has been a feature of Infiniti's recent concept models, including the Etherea shown off at the Geneva motor show earlier this year. Autocar understands that the grille design will be on all future Infiniti road cars.
The frontal changes also include an aggressive carbonfibre spoiler that has been modelled on the front wing of a Formula One car. The concept has LED running lights that are deeply inset above the spoiler.
