Developed in close collaboration with the Renault Sport Formula One Team, Project Black S represents a radical reinterpretation of the Infiniti Q60 Coupe, while exploring hybrid power and new aero features. The whole idea behind the Project Black S is to eventually enhance performance and dynamics for Infiniti production vehicles, using Renault's Formula One technology.
For example, the Project Black S features a performance hybrid powertrain with an energy recovery system (ERS) unlike anything you'll see in a current road car.
The system works by harvesting energy before deploying it in order to boost power and torque, in turn leading to instant, lag-free acceleration, according to the automaker. Also, the new 'Black S' grade could in turn represent a so-called maximum level of performance and dynamic ability in an Infiniti road car.
