Now that the Sebastian Vettel edition Infiniti FX is confirmed for production, we just could expect to see performance model Infiniti's sometime in the future just like how BMW has the M-series.
The Infiniti FX Sebastian Vettel edition has been confirmed for production. Originally unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show earlier this year, the Vettel Edition gets design and engineering upgrades over the 385bhp FX50s.
The 5.0-litre V8 has been tweaked to produce 414bhp and is fitted to a car described as “the most focused and exclusive sports crossover ever built”. Infiniti Executive Vice President Andy Palmer said, “It’s about our equivalent of AMG or M Cars.”
Also among the upgrades is a new aerodynamic bodykit developed by Infiniti in partnership with Red Bull Racing. That should allow for stable handling at the Vettel’s top speed of 186mph.
Andy Palmer went on to say, “Sebastian’s FX demonstrates we are able to do low volume specials and the FX Sebastian Vettel version is one of the first that will go to market”. No further details on availability and pricing have been revealed.
