Featuring Formula One-inspired technology, Project Black S is an exploration of a new Infiniti high-performance model line.
Developed in collaboration with the RenaultSport Formula One Team, Project Black S was revealed for the first time globally at a special media event on the eve of this week’s Geneva International Motor Show.
A radical reinterpretation of the Q60 coupe, Project Black S features a standout, aerodynamic design, and hints at how a unique-for-the-road performance hybrid powertrain could significantly enhance the dynamics of an Infiniti production car.

The performance hybrid powertrain being explored through Project Black S features an “energy recovery system” (ERS) to harvest energy, deploying recovered electric power to boost power and torque.
The result is instant, significant, lag-free acceleration. Inspired by the dual-hybrid system proven in Formula One, the technology does not yet exist in a current road car.
The reveal of Project Black S in Geneva will help to gauge potential public interest in high-performance derivatives of Infiniti cars.
