Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge Prototype Makes Dynamic Debut At Goodwood: Video

Follow Viknesh

Infiniti took its Q50 Eau Rouge prototype to the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed last weekend, and we have video of the car during its run up Goodwood’s famous hill climb. Unfortunately, Infiniti chose to edit out the sound of the car, which is a shame since the car actually sounds quite brutal thanks to its 560-horsepower GT-R heart.

That’s right, the Q50 Eau Rouge prototype is powered by the twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V-6 of the GT-R, and like the Nissan it also comes with a sophisticated all-wheel-drive system to help make the most of all the power.

Taking turns to drive the Q50 Eau Rouge prototype were Red Bull Racing team principal Christian Horner and test driver Sébastien Buemi. Buemi also took Red Bull’s RB9 Formula One car up the climb, as shown in the video as well.

Infiniti’s official line is that a decision to take the Q50 Eau Rouge to production is currently under evaluation, but given the attention the prototype is receiving eventual production can’t be far. For more from the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed, click here.
