GENEVA 2017, 2018 Infiniti Q60 Project Black S INSPIRED by F1. A concept to seal the partnership with Renault Sport F1, the replication mechanisms of RS17 power unit
This is not the first time that Infiniti has a Formula 1-inspired road. At the Geneva Motor Show will be 2017 Q60 Project Black S, materials testing laboratory to seal the partnership with Renault. In the past it was touched to Q50 Eau Rouge Infiniti hybrid performance, then follow the road was on the hood of the Red Bull World Cup dominatrixes. From a sedan to its declination Coupe, developed as part of a collaboration between the Nissan-Renault Alliance, Galaxy, which belongs to the luxury brand Infiniti, and Daimler.
The technical details are scarce at the moment. It’s a project whose marketing is not granted, may be an exercise in technology. What is realized? The idea is to replicate as much as possible the operation of a power unit of Formula 1 on a production model. Not a simple hybrid, given the different sources of energy recovery used on Grand Prix cars, which in addition to recovering energy from deceleration, what would the well-known KERS, use exhaust gasses that cause the turbine to extract energy and storing it in batteries, the Energy Recovery System.

Shrink all of these solutions in the engine compartment of a Coupe is anything but simple. It starts from the top architecture, 3-litre Twin-Turbo V6 engine Q60 405 horsepower and 475 Nm, connected to the traction four-wheel drive. The adaptation makes it necessary to adopt a battery, an electric motor located on the gearbox or between gearbox and motor, with the uncertainty whether or not recover energy from exhaust gasses and the movement of the turbine, very complex operation. In Geneva, we may know more about the project, which is intended to overcome the threshold of 500 horses, by rumors circulated and obviously improve performance significantly. By 5 sec under acceleration will subside considerably the time, as well as the turbo response delay, is reset to zero and the Kers power boost will raise the performance at any juncture.

In addition to the technique, there is a retelling of the style, edited by Infinite design center of Paddington. 21-inch wheels, aerodynamic front bumper, the bonnet magazine entirely, continuing with short skirts, wing biplane to spoon and diffuser with dual tailpipe centralized. A work that would seem to be the result of an extreme functional tuning instead of the actual performance improvement. It only remains to wait for the changes that will be coming from Infiniti and collaboration with Renault Sports Department of Viry Chatillon.
