Infiniti has revealed the first image of its Q80 Inspiration concept car – a top-of-the-line four-seat fastback that will be officially unveiled at next month’s Paris motor show.
Targeted at the premium large four-door club, the design study previews a forthcoming production model that will aim to take on the likes of the Porsche Panamera.
To be powered by a hybrid-electric powertrain, the Q80 Inspiration extends to 5052 mm with a long wheelbase of 3103 mm framed by custom 22-inch five-dual-spoke alloys. It strikes an imposing stance with its width of 2027 mm and height of 1350 mm.
In line with current design trends, there are no side-door mirrors to break up the aesthetics of the side profile. The car also incorporates a teardrop greenhouse that stretches across the full roof length, while its doors open ‘portal’ style which allows the cabin to be fully on display while driver and passengers step in and out.
The interior will feature carbon-fibre, aluminium, and leather, with the seating arrangement being described as having a “1 + 1 + 1 + 1” configuration.
“After showing Q30 Concept and Q50 Eau Rouge, Infiniti is eager to show the upper range of our portfolio expansion,” said Infiniti executive design director, Alfonso Albaisa. “In Q80 Inspiration, we wanted to capture that unforgettable feeling when you experience something important, something beautiful, something magnetic for the first time.”
