Infiniti Prototype 9 Blends Old and New With Stunning Results

They made Prototype 9 a reality, a result of their ingenuity - they recognised and realised the past, powered by a future-centric electric powertrain at its heart. It receives its motivation from an electric motor (similar to the one that will power the new Leaf) which produces 148 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque.

Perhaps most controversial is the application of Infiniti's double arch grille, which no doubt would have taken on a simpler form for a dedicated racing machine, along with the free-standing Infiniti bonnet ornament - something that even Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrows race cars of the era (which obviously influenced the design direction of the Prototype 9 concept) went without.

The cockpit is wrapped in black leather with contrast red stitching, sewn and finished in such a way as to echo earlier single-seater racers.

Many concepts don't run and drive, but the Project 9 is a fully working prototype.

"It started as a simple thought - what if we found a vehicle, down at the Southern tip of Japan, buried deep in a barn, hidden from all eyes for 70 years?" The philosophy behind its creation also references the "seed of passion" planted during Infiniti's first Japanese Grand Prix.

The Infiniti Prototype 9 will be making its public debut at the Pebble Beach Concours D'Elegance, which kicks off on August 20, according to the event's official website.

Thanks to its involvement in Formula One, Infiniti knows a thing or two about advanced powertrains and electric setups.
