The new Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge Concept became official today at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. This new concept car express Infiniti’s design vision of a high-performance version of the Q50 sports sedan and as you can see from the photos it comes with a bespoke aerodynamic carbon fiber bodykit and it is also lower and wider comparing it with the standard version.
According to Infiniti, almost every exterior panel of the concept is bespoke and only the front doors and the arch of the roof pillars were retained as standard components. The Q50 Eau Rouge comes with new front and rear fenders that extend the vehicle’s broad-shoulder stance by 20 mm, while the larger deck lid spoiler creates air-pressure downforce.
Moreover, the Q50 Eau Rouge comes with dark-chrome detailing that replace the chrome bright work. The double-arch front grille is has also a matte finish, as do the glasshouse surrounds, door handles and deck lid accents. The curving hood is double air-vented as a further suggestion of the capability and purpose of the Q50 Eau Rouge.
The sporty theme is also continued at the interior where Infiniti installed a high-grip sports steering wheel and Formula One-Style paddle-shifters. Furthermore, the interior features red-infused carbon fiber detailing on the doors and center console and dark-chrome that replaces silver-chrome in the red cockpit.
