ROLLE, Switzerland – An “Inspired Performance” is guaranteed at the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed (June 28 – July 1), the first year that Infiniti, the performance luxury automotive brand from Japan, is acting as an Official Sponsor of the UK’s iconic motoring and motorsport celebration.
Making its world debut on the hillclimb will be the first running prototype of the UK-designed and built range-extender concept, Infiniti EMERG-E.
Jerry Hardcastle, Global Chief Marketability Engineer, commented: “The Festival of Speed crowds will be seeing EMERG-E in action for the first time ever, even before many of Infiniti’s top executives have seen it. Goodwood’s spectators will see not just an exquisite design but an example of our and our partners’ technologies for an environmentally-friendly car brimming with true Infiniti driver appeal.”
Also powering up the Earl of March’s driveway will be the Infiniti FX Vettel Edition. Lighter and more aerodynamic, with 30% higher downforce, the 420PS FX Vettel Edition is virtually unchanged from the Frankfurt Motor Show concept and ranks as Infiniti’s most powerful car as well as its most expensive (circa €120,000/£100,000 ). This will be the first chance to see the FX Vettel Edition in action ahead of deliveries which begin in the first quarter of 2013.
