The Infiniti Q80 Inspiration concept car, previewing the Japanese brand’s future design language, has been awarded one of the most prestigious cross-industry design prizes.
The concept car, originally unveiled at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, has received an iF Design Award in the ‘Professional Concept’ category, with the concept’s four-door fastback design winning over the 58-strong international jury. The hybrid electric concept vehicle was chosen to receive the accolade from total list of 5,295 entries from 53 countries.
Alfonso Albaisa, Infiniti executive design director, commented: “The Q80 Inspiration’s combination of power and elegance set future design cues that are now surfacing in recently launched models such as the Q30 and Q60.”
The official iF Design Award ceremony took place last Friday in Germany during the 2016 Munich Creative Business Week.
