Without input from the people involved in this incident, the only thing we can do is speculate what’s going on in this video that starts off with an Infiniti FX struggling and spinning its wheels in a snow and mud covered area just off the road.

Halfwit Attempts to Stop Rolling Infiniti by…Stomping the Gas Pedal


Read more

As if exiting a car while it's still rolling without securing it in some way, be that by turning off the engine and placing it out of drive/gear while using the handbrake as well, isn't a daft move in itself, trying to stop it by pressing the gas pedal takes you to a whole new league of foolhardiness, now, doesn't it…

Read more

Aside from the change in their model naming policy, Infiniti has been doing lots of constructive things with its range of cars over the years, tailoring them for specific needs of prospective buyers in any given location around the world. For instance, in Europe, they introduced diesels throughout the range, as otherwise, they would have hardly sold any cars at all.

Infiniti Hands First FX Vettel Edition to Sebastian Vettel


Read more

Being that Sebastian Vettel helped create and even gave his name to the fastest production version of the Infiniti FX, it's only natural that the triple Formula One World Champion gets the very first example of the limited production FX Vettel Edition SUV.

Infiniti delivered the FX Vettel Edition number 001 (of just 150 made) straight to his home in Switzerland on the eve of Vettel's 26th birthday.

What a Tool! Infiniti FX Driver Hits and Runs Away on Russian Highway


Read more

Things really have a tendency to get out of hand in Russia, and a highway crash turns into a felony as an Infiniti FX driver rams a Mitsubishi Colt from behind, launching it into the inner guard rail, causing it to crash quite severely. However, the luxurious Japanese SUV is not seriously damaged, and it speeds away from the scene, disappearing in the distance.

Nissan Compares 2014 GT-R Against 370Z Coupe and Infiniti FX on the Snow


Read more

That the GT-R is a high-performance sports car you can potentially use all year round and in a variety of weather conditions (just as long as you can afford the upkeep…), is a well-known and accepted fact, but how good is it really in snow and how does it compare to other vehicles?

Well, that's a question that would be better answered by someone not related to the company itself for apparent reasons, but that doesn’t mean we're not interested in what Nissan has to say about it in a new video it has released.

Did you know that Miami-based Vossen Wheels has collaborated with a Russian company named Rus Wheels? Neither did we, and to be frank, we probably wouldn't have paid much attention anyway if it weren't for this picture of a customized Infiniti FX shared by the alloy-wheel specialist.

Infiniti Adopts New Naming Strategy, Next G Series will be Called the Q50


Read more

Out with the old, in with the new, or at least that's what Infiniti is saying about its new nomenclature.

Beginning from next year, Infiniti will use the letter "Q" for all sedan, coupe and convertible models and the letters "QX" for SUVs and crossovers, adding a double digit at the end of both to signify the series and the hierarchy within the range.

The first Infiniti model to wear the brand's new badges is the G series' successor that will be revealed in sedan trim at the Detroit auto show in mid-January, and which will be called the Q50.

Infiniti Goes to Brazil, will Launch with a New Sedan, the FX and JX in 2014

Even though Nissan originally created Infiniti in 1989 to cater to the needs of North American consumers, the Japanese brand has since rapidly expanded its global network that currently includes 47 countries around the globe.

This year alone, Infiniti added Singapore, Chile, the Dominican Republic, South Africa and Australia to the list of countries it operates within, with Hong Kong to follow in early 2013.

And that's no all, as on Saturday, Infiniti announced plans to begin sales in Brazil starting in 2014 with the opening of "Infiniti Centres" in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.

Infiniti Emerg-e Runs, Breaks Down During Demonstration Laps at Goodwood Hill Climb


Read more

One of the more impressive and unique cars to storm up the Goodwood hill climb this past weekend was Infiniti’s first running prototype of the range-extender Emerg-e sports concept, which was first shown at the 2012 Geneva motor show as a static prototype.

The UK-designed and built concept had a slightly awkward moment on Friday during the demonstrator laps, as according to a video filmed by YouTube user 'MrDHandZ', it either broke down or ran out of electric juice at some point during the race and was carried away on a truck.

While surely an unwelcome development, one should not forget that the Emerg-e is an advanced study making its first public outing as a fully-functioning model in a race. On the Sunday hill climb, the Emerg-e completed the run in the hands of Red Bull Racing's Australian Formula One pilot, Mark Webber.

Infiniti to Debut Running Emerg-E Prototype and Bentley a Surprise Model at the Goodwood Festival


Read more

It might not be a show in the traditional sense, but that isn't stopping carmakers from debuting new models at the upcoming Goodwood Festival of Speed, taking place in Britain from June 28 to July 1.

Today we learn that Infiniti will perform the world premiere of the first running prototype of the UK-designed and built range-extender supercar concept, the Emerg-E, which premiered in static form at this year's Geneva Motor Show in March.

In fact, the Emerg-E will do more than show up as it will participate in the famed Goodwood hill climb alongside other cars including the Renault Alpine A110-50 Concept.

"The Festival of Speed crowds will be seeing EMERG-E in action for the first time ever, even before many of Infiniti's top executives have seen it," commented Jerry Hardcastle, Infiniti Global Chief Marketability Engineer.

Infiniti Offers Select FX European Buyers a Chance to See the Inner Workings of Red Bull F1 Team


Read more

The FX “concept” that was unwrapped at the Frankfurt Motor Show was supposed to be a one-off model designed with input from 2010 (and, subsequently, 2011) Formula 1 world champion Sebastian Vettel.

However, Infiniti did what everyone expected, and less than a month later confirmed that the tweaked, 420HP luxury crossover would indeed enter production, albeit in limited numbers.

Now, as part of the celebrations for Sebastian Vettel's 2011 championship, Infiniti is offering European buyers of the FX the chance to get a unique insight of the inner workings of the Red Bull Racing Formula 1 team.
