Introduced at last year’s event in Geneva, the Q60 Project Black S was introduced with Formula One technology and sent tongues wagging. However, with the sour taste of the canceled Eau Rouge project still in the mouth’s of many, it was commonly thought as nothing more than wishful thinking.
Intrigued by what the future holds for the Project Black S, we quizzed Weinmann. According to him, development is ongoing.
More specifically, Weinmann said that work is being done on making a fully-functioning prototype. Weinmann stopped short of saying whether or not the vehicle will reach production.
Based on the Q60 Red Sport 400, the original Project Black S concept used the same 400 hp twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6, to which it added a hybrid system co-developed with the Renault Sport Formula One team for a total combined output of 500 hp.
If Infiniti manages to make the Q60 Project Black S a reality without too many changes, then it might give the likes of the M4 and RS5 something to think about…
