Infiniti unveiled the Emerge-E hybrid sports car concept at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. Now Infiniti has just announced that at the upcoming 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed, Infiniti will debut a running prototype of the Emerg-E concept.
Jerry Hardcastle, Global Chief Marketability Engineer, commented: “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. Goodwood’s spectators will see not just an exquisite design but an example of our and our partners’ technologies for an environmentally-friendly car brimming with true Infiniti driver appeal.”
Infiniti is also going to show off the Infiniti FX Vettel Edition at the event. The special-edition FX is lighter and more aerodynamic than the standard FX with 30% higher downforce. The 420 horsepower SUV is Infiniti’s most powerful model and also its most exclusive, with only 50 units going to be offered in Europe. It’s priced at €120,000.
The Goodwood Festival of Speed kicks off on June 28th.
