Production will start in October for Sebastian Vettel’s special edition Infiniti FX50 S. Its price tag says that it costs more than £100,000, according to an Autocar report. Deliveries of the Vettel FX50 S will begin early next year. The company plans for this car to be priced slightly higher than 120,000 euros in mainland Europe, which is equivalent to a UK price of just higher than £100,000.
Only 50 units will arrive in Europe. The company will decide on the UK application as soon as the expressions of interest are received. To date, the company has received eight orders from European customers that have already confirmed. It’s nine if Vettel is included. He will get the first unit that rolls off the production line.
It will be mostly unchanged from the concept unveiled last year at the Frankfurt motor show. The only apparent change is that instead of being painted matt white, it will use pearlescent white paint. It will be powered by the same 414bhp 5.0-litre V8 that could bring the car to a top speed of 186mph.
Vettel had helped in its development. It’s believed that he specified its sporty chassis settings. The carbonfibre bodykit was designed by his Red Bull Racing Formula One team, which made sure downforce is produced and that drag will be lower by 5%.
