Infiniti claims the Eau Rouge is capable of sprinting from 0-62mph in less than four seconds. It's also reputed to have a top speed of 180mph.
Despite this announcement, there is no official word on production and the firm continues to call the Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge concept a "high-performance" styling exercise.
Infiniti president Johan de Nysschen had previously said, "The engine we are evaluating for the Q50 Eau Rouge is a big personality, V-cylinder engine with forced induction. I think our engineers have been waiting for a project like this.”
Infiniti says the car exhibits its design vision for future high-performance models, with its looks being inspired by "muscularity, refinement, and understated performance intent".
The car also features heavily revised aerodynamics, which "draw inspiration" from the collaboration between Infiniti and the Infiniti Red Bull Racing F1 team.
Much of the exterior has been redesigned in order to optimise the car's aerodynamics. The Q50 Eau Rouge is lower and wider than the production car and features a carbonfibre front splitter, rear diffuser and side skirts.
The manufacturer claims that, as a result, only the roof and door profiles remain unchanged from the conventional production version of the Infiniti Q50.
