Infiniti FX and Etherea concepts

  • Sebastian Vettel-designed FX launched
  • Futuristic Etherea Concept saloon
  • Rapid petrol/electric hybrid also on show

Infiniti showed a special edition of its FX50S known as the Sebastian Vettel Version.

Designed with help from the Formula 1 world champion, it features tweaks to the suspension, engine and body so that the crossover will be capable of speeds above 185mph - as demanded by Mr Vettel himself. The driver also added tweaks to the interior to reflect his own tastes.

The Japanese luxury manufacturer had plenty to shout about on its stand with the German premiere of its Etherea Concept saloon as well as the Red Bull Racing Formula One car as driven by reigning World Champion Sebastian Vettel.

Other attractions included the world's fastest accelerating petrol/electric hybrid, the Infiniti M35h, and six short-listed installations from the 1st theme of the Infiniti Digital Art Competition
