PINNACLE TECHNOLOGY

A PARTNERSHIP IN PERFORMANCE

The body of a coupe. The beating heart of a race car. Project Black S is an evolving collaboration between INFINITI and Renault Sport Formula One™ Team to develop innovative technologies for an electrified future.

INCREASED POWER. INSTANT ACCELERATION.

The dual hybrid Energy Recovery System helps deliver instant electric torque and lag-free acceleration alongside the turbo-charged V6 internal combustion engine by harvesting both kinetic and heat energy.

INTELLIGENT ENERGY MANAGEMENT

Intelligent Energy Managent

Project Black S generates more power and more acceleration than ever before — potentially revolutionizing the performance of our future road cars.

INTELLIGENT ENERGY MANAGEMENT

Instant Stopping Power

The brake by wire system and carbon ceramic discs give greater, more accurate control at high-speed for a confident and consistent braking sensation.


“While still a prototype, this dual hybrid system is a world first, harvesting both heat and kinetic energy, under braking and acceleration. By intelligently scavenging and recycling energy, the hybrid performance from the Project Black S powertrain would be smart, sustained and utterly satisfying to deploy.”
 
Francois Bancon, Vice President Motorsport and Connected Vehicle, INFINITI

RACE-FOCUSED DESIGN

SHAPED 

Project Black S is the ultimate expression of INFINITI DNA, balancing Q60’s artistic curves with enhanced sports design — inside and out.


SMALL ENHANCEMENTS, GREATER POWER

Lightweight and aerodynamic, the Project Black S harnesses sculpted carbon fiber bodywork and two-seat motorsport focused interior for the ultimate driving experience.

KEEP COOL

Keeping high-temperature components cool are vents, louvers, and precise aero styling that help guide airflow where it’s needed most.

KEEP COOL

Providing more downforce and greater aero efficiency, the rear wing is inspired by Renault Sport Formula One™ Team’s race car.
