Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge Roars into life


Infiniti

Infiniti has boosted excitement in the high-performance premium sports sedan segment at the 2014 Geneva International Motor Show by revealing a powerful engine for the Q50 Eau Rouge concept. The beating heart of the Eau Rouge, a twin-turbocharged, 3.8-litre V6 petrol engine, was revealed on the Infiniti show stand today.

The Q50 Eau Rouge – a high-performance concepts car based on the premium manufacturer’s award-winning Q50 sports sedan – was first revealed at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show in January as a Formula One inspired, carbon fibre aero-enhanced concept. Q50 Eau Rouge now tells a compelling power story with a full 557 BHP and 442 LB/FT of torque on demand.

"Building on the extremely positive feedback on the Q50 Eau Rouge at its recent Detroit Auto Show launch, we decided to further whet the appetite of performance sports sedan fans by engineering this powerful heart into our blood-red beast,” said Johan de Nysschen, President of Infiniti Motor Company Limited.

“A car with such pronounced styling treatments demands the very best in terms of high-performance powertrains, which is why we installed this V6 twin-turbocharged, 7-speed combination as an example of what a potential powertrain for the Q50 Eau Rouge may look and sound like.”

The 3799cc, V6, 24-valve, twin-turbocharged petrol engine partners a full-time, all-wheel drive system with 50/50 front-to-rear torque split. Predicted acceleration of 60mph (96.5km/h) in less than four seconds and a top speed close to 180mph (289.6 km/h) would put the Q50 Eau Rouge firmly into the premier league of super-sports sedans.

The most powerful and exhilarating petrol-powered Infiniti model has not been confirmed for production, but the unveiling of the latest iteration of the Q50 Eau Rouge in Geneva underlines the company’s determination to create engaging performance cars for a premium segment.
