Sebastian Vettel's specially designed and built Infiniti FX will now enter production. On show at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, the FX Sebastian Vettel version features design, engineering and aerodynamic upgrades inspired by Sebastian Vettel, Red Bull Racing champion and Infiniti Global Brand Ambassador.
Infiniti Executive Vice President Andy Palmer said: "Doing the FX Sebastian Vettel version for Frankfurt was fun, but it's also a kind of pilot. It's about our equivalent of (Mercedes Benz) AMG or (BMW) M Cars. We wanted to test the organisation and see if it could cope with this type of special version. Sebastian's FX demonstrates we are able to do low volume specials and the FX Sebastian Vettel version is one of the first that will go to market."
A conversation between Sebastian Vettel and Infiniti Chief Creative Officer Shiro Nakamura realised the Frankfurt Motor Show concept car. The Infiniti FX's 5.0 litre V8 engine was tuned to deliver 420PS, tamed by a high downforce aerodynamics package developed in a collaboration between Infiniti and Red Bull Racing.
