Ignition - - Front Page -

One of the more in­ter­est­ing re­veals at the Geneva Mo­tor Show is some­thing called Project Black S, a new per­for­mance line be­ing con­sid­ered for In­finiti with the help of the Re­nault Sport For­mu­la­mula One Team. The man­i­fes­ta­tion of this new po­ten­tial high­per­for­mance brand, which could feature a pow­er­train that uti­lizes En­ergy Re­cov­ery Sys­tem (ERS) tech­nol­ogy cur­rently be­ing uti­lized in For­mula One, is the tuned-out Q60 coupe pic­tured here. In ad­di­tion to a high-per­for­mance pow­er­train fea­tur­ing ERS, the Q60 Black S is kit­ted out with all man­ner of slick per­for­man­cein­spired body­work that in­cludes gi­ant front air in­takes, a fixed rear wing made from car­bon fi­bre and 21-inch power num­bers for this su­per Q60 have been re­leased, but the com­pany says a 25 per­cent power gain for the 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 (cur­rently max­ing out at 400 hp) is pos­si­ble with an ERS hy­brid pow­er­train. Will Project Black S find its way into pro­duc­tion? In­finiti won't say (yet), but sug­gested the re­veal at Geneva is de­signed to gauge in­ter­est. Stay tuned.
