Infiniti Q60 concept revealed, pictures and confirmed specs

Infiniti has confirmed the details of its Q60 concept with its 2015 Detroit motor show debut

Infiniti has confirmed the specs of its new Q60 concept after its world debut in Detroit. Set to preview a full production version due for arrival in 2016, the Q60 Inifiniti wears sleek and curvaceous bodywork and looks to have Audi's A5 and BMW's 4-series locked firmly in its sights.

Up front, a snarling nose is dominated by a wide-mouthed grille and double-winged front spoiler. A smooth, curving bonnet and clean sides are accompanied by sleek door mirrors and wide hips, giving the Q60 concept a muscular exterior with a hint of Q80 Inspiration concept.

Alfonso Albaisa, Infiniti's Executive Design Director said: 'the sweeping lines of the Q80 Inspiration gave the Q60 Concept its coupe silhouette and looks while the Formula One-inspired touches from the Q50 Eau Rouge endowed the coupe with its sports personality.'

Sitting on chunky 21-inch alloy wheels with a turbine inspired design, the Q60 concept squats low, suggesting a production version would trade wafty-ride comfort for a sharp handling chassis setup.

There's a 2+2 layout in the cabin, which Infiniti claims features leathers with 'the right balance of comfort and support as befits a premium sports coupe.' These hand-stitched leathers wrap over sections of the dash and door cards, and are accompanied by sporty seats and a panoramic sunroof.

The car gains Infiniti's InTuition system - an entirely customisable system that can save driver settings for the car between four people - which adjusts everything from seating position to cabin climate settings.

Under the bonnet of the concept sits a 24-valve 3-litre V6, borrowed from the Q80 Inspiration first seen at the Paris motor show. It's said to head a family of more efficient and more powerful engines that'll arrive in cars starting from this year.

There's even word a 3.7-litre V6 (as featured in the hot Q50 Eau Rouge) could be offered in a fast version to rival the BMW M4 and Audi S5. Fingers crossed.

Prices will be announced closer to production, which is set to commence early next year.
