Infiniti Coupe Concept to compete in Italian “beauty contest”
Rolle, Switzerland – The Infiniti Coupe Concept has been selected to compete in the 2007 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, a traditional “beauty contest” for classic automobiles and contemporary concept cars. The annual contest will be held April 20-23 at the Grand Hotel Villa d’Este on Lake Como, Italy, where it has been held since its origin in 1929.
The Coupe Concept was created by Nissan Motor Company’s design headquarters in Atsugi, Japan and was first unveiled at the 2006 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Shiro Nakamura, senior vice-president and chief creative officer at Nissan, will represent the company at the event.
The Coupe Concept is the inspiration for the all-new 2008 Infiniti G37, which will go on sale in North America in August.
