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.
