Eau Rouge is one of the most famous corners in motorsports, a high-speed corner on the famed Spa-Francorchamps track in Belgium. It\'s this corner that Infiniti, Nissan\'s luxury brand, has named its new concept car after, and it\'s on display at the ongoing Detroit Auto Show.
Called the Q50 Eau Rouge, the concept car \"expresses Infiniti\'s design vision of a high-performance premium sports sedan.\"
The Q50 Eau Rouge sports bespoke aerodynamic carbon-fiber bodywork, which, together with its low and wide stance, gives the car genuine road presence. According to Infiniti, the car\'s design is inspired \"by muscularity, aerodynamics, refinement and understated power.\"
\"If we built this car, I would expect it to feature over 500hp and 813Nm of torque,\" said Infiniti president Johan de Nysschen. \"Through our various alliance partners, we have access to a range of engines featuring this performance capability, which, with a fair amount of engineering effort, can be developed to exhibit Infiniti character and accommodated within the Q50 engine bay. The engine we are evaluating for the Q50 Eau Rouge is a big-personality, V-cylinder engine with forced induction. I think our engineers have been waiting for a project like this.\"
