Infiniti Q80 Inspiration

2015 Goodwood: Infiniti to feature three concept cars

On June 15, Infiniti announced that it will showcase three concept models at the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed which begins on the 26th in the UK.

One of these prototypes is the Q60 Concept, which could develop into the next-generation Nissan Skyline Coupe. The exterior measures at 4,690 x 1,865 x 1,370mm (length x width x height). The cabin features high-quality material including hand-made leather, Alcantara, and carbon fiber. Compared to the current Skyline Coupe, the legroom has been expanded at the back and generated into a true 2+2 coupe. The power train is a direct-injected 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo engine.

Joining the Q60 Concept at the Goodwood Festival of Speed is the Infiniti Q80 Inspiration. Infiniti established this concept as their new flagship model to lead its expanding lineup. The exterior of this large 4-door coupe measures at 5,052 x 2,027 x 1,350mm and has a fairly large wheelbase of 3,103mm. The interior offers a separate four-seat layout. The Q80 is decorated with the best materials including carbon fiber, aluminum, and leather. The power train is a hybrid system featuring a new 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo engine + motor that generates 550hp of maximum output.

Lastly, also on display at Goodwood this year is the QX30 Concept. The QX30 Concept was developed for Infiniti’s entry into the compact crossover market. The QX label is used on all of Infiniti’s SUVs and crossover models. Although the QX50 (Nissan Skyline Crossover, in Japan) is their current entry model, the QX30 will soon take over this position upon its release.

Infiniti has expressed that they would like to “showcase its future lineup at Goodwood”.
