Pictures of a newInfiniticoncept car have been revealed online ahead of a debut atPebble Beach Concours dElegancenext week. Its called the Prototype 9 and despite its classic race car styling, is said to use a electric motor with 148bhp.
Its been built by a small team as an after hours project, and is designed to show how a 1940s Infiniti Grand Prix car would have looked despite the brand only launching in 1989.
Under the bodywork is a next-generationEVpowertrain fromNissans Advanced Powertrain Department. A 30kWh high-voltage battery is paired up to a new electric motor, which develops 148bhp and 320Nm of torque.
Pebble Beach and Monterey car week
Power is delivered through the rear wheels; and it is claimed the Prototype 9 can cover 0-62mph in 5.5 seconds and hit a top speed of 106mph. The battery will last 20 minutes under heavy track use, according to the Japanese brand.
Infiniti says the look of the Protoype 9 has been inspired by Japanese Motorsport and aeronautical design. It features an exposed cockpit, open-wheel layout, 19-inch wire-spoke wheels and modern Infiniti design cues such as the double arch grille.
The cabin, meanwhile, is handmade, while a single leather seat features contrasting red stitching with a Japanese flags etched into the headrest. The steering wheel rotates around a fixed centre hub, which includes all the instrument binnacles.
Expect more pictures next week, when the car is unveiled in full at Monterey Car Week in California.
