Inifiniti shows the world its take on a retro Grand Prix racer at The Pebble Beach Concours D’Elegance

Infiniti Grand Prix racer

Nine Vibes

This Infiniti Prototype 9 uses time-honoured body crafting techniques. The bare sheet-metal skin is the result of Takumi panel beaters who shaped its aerodynamic form. Power comes via a prototype electric motor and battery from Nissan’s Advanced Powertrain Department.

The car’s design is said to have arisen from a quaint thought: what sort of barn find would one have come across in Japan had Infiniti been present on a racetrack in the 1940s?
