naias 2015 infiniti lights up its world with q60 concept

What’s white with blue lights all over itself and a pair of haunting eyes? The Infiniti Q60 Concept, of course [Live photos now available – CA].

The 2+2 coupe is powered by the same 3-liter twin-turbo direct-injection V6 that first bowed with the Q80 Inspiration from last year’s Paris Motor Show. Power from the mill is sent to the back via a seven-speed auto.

Inside, hand-stitched leather, carbon fiber accents, and four quilted-and-bolstered bucket seats greet the driver and passengers. Meanwhile, the driver (or up to four of them) can use their Intelligent Key with the Infiniti InTuitionTM system to customize their preferences, from seating position and HVAC, to navigation and telematics.

On the outside, human eye-inspired LED headlamps uses fiber optic-esque features that, when lit by the projector, deliver “a high-tech stare” at the long road ahead. Similar features make up the tail lamps, while the badge and various interior and exterior LED lighting are done up in blue.

Though a concept, the Q60 Concept points toward a production-based sports coupe Infiniti plans to begin production in 2016.

    The soft lines mixed with teh hard lines look a little odd to me. Especially that front fender vent.'s a concept and sexy headlights and mirrors always seem to change to actual production models. We'll see. I can't keep track of what infinity models fall where anyway.

    Not really my style, but good to see Infiniti making an effort. Unfortunate that they're going the Honda route with two screens in the center stack. Do luxury car buyers have so much time on their hands that they prefer to dig through menus to turn on the heated seats?

  • Gemcitytm Why does it seem every EV seems to have ridiculous amounts of power? Yes, I know they're heavier than ICE models but who on earth needs 708 HP? How about a nice, compact EV with, say, 250 HP and 350-400 mile range? Is that impossible with today's tech? (I currently drive a 148 HP Mazda 3 ICE and it has all the get-up-and-go I need.)
  • CEastwood I could have bought one of these if I had the cash in 76 for $1000 white , red interior , 3 speed stick with whitewalls/ wire hubcaps - it was mint and gone a day after I saw it . But the real catch that got away was an all original 69 green Camaro RS convertible 327 4 speed with 46K on the clock for 1800 that I saw a few months earlier . Young and poor was not a fun place to be !
  • KOKing I'm in an emissions check only state, and I'd trade that away for a safety check all day.
  • Bd2 The hybrid powertrain in the Sportage and Tucson are the ones to get.H/K should discontinue the base NA 2.5L powertrain and just build more of the hybrid.In the future, maybe offer a 2nd, more powerful hybrid (the hybrid 2.5) which will first arrive with the next Telluride/Palisade.Kia also needs to redo the front fascia for the Sportage's refresh.
  • The Oracle I say let the clunkers stay on the roads.
