The Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge concept sporting Formula 1-inspired exterior design, is being showcased at the NAIAS 2014. It expresses Infiniti’s design vision for a Q50 performance edition, which if made, would be a special series.

Designed with an aerodynamic body kit and components made of carbon fiber, the car is lower and wider, and stands for “muscularity, aerodynamics, refinement, and understated power.”

If green-lit, Infiniti boss Johan de Nysschen says the Eau Rouge would have over 500 bhp and 813 Nm on tap. The engine would be a V-cylinder type with forced induction.

Only the front doors and the arch of the roof pillars are retained from the Q50. The roof is made of carbon fiber, while the giant 21-inch forged wheels are enclosed with red brake disc calipers. The front and the rear have F1 styling influences with a front wing assembly and a sporty rear spoiler complemented by a central brake light respectively.

The interior is modified with a high-grip sports steering wheel and Formula One-style paddle-shifters. Red-infused carbon fiber parts adorn the doors and central console, and dark chrome replaces silver chrome in the cockpit.
