One significant step at a time

Infiniti’s vision and direction of thinking has been clear for some time. Last year at Monterey Car Week, the brand’s Prototype 9 was revealed. It was a single seater, vintage car that took its inspiration from grand prix race cars. It was essentially a designer’s interpretation of how an Infiniti race car would have looked in the 1940’s. Infiniti has been putting a lot of thought into their cars of the future. Their vision is a car that looks and feels vintage, but runs on truly eco-friendly fuel. The objective is to deliver a car with absolutely no compromise on speed, driving comfort and of course the focus is on technical superiority.

With cars of the future going the eco-friendly technology route, we can be rest assured that the world is in safe hands.
