2011 Frankfurt: Infiniti FX Crossover Styled by Sebastian Vettel
As promised by an earlier teaser video, Red Bull Racing Formula 1 driver Sebastian Vettel has helped design a new Infiniti FX crossover. The company released the first picture of the car today, and will unveil it at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month.
Changes applied to the car apparently consist of carbon-fiber mirrors, new wheels, a large rear wing, a new front lip, new side skirts, and a tweaked front fascia with LED running lights. There's also, of course, a chrome Vettel badge on the crossover's front fender.
An earlier teaser video also promised a matte-gray interior and a steering wheel that was less "normal." That may mean the Infiniti's wheel will score an array of buttons and flashing lights like the expensive steering wheels in Formula 1 cars.
There's still no word as to whether this modified Infiniti is a prelude to a new production model, or whether there are any performance upgrades in store for the car. We'll find out more on September 13 in Frankfurt.
