unveiled for the first time at this year’s concours d’elegance, INFINITI’s prototype 10 is a single-seat, reimagined classic speedster, with a clean and forward-looking design. the car is a sleek update on prototype 9, the retro-looking speedster that INFINITI presented at pebble beach last year.

prototype 10 is a physical manifestation of the hong kong motor company‘s ambitious plans for electrified performance, who has pledged to electrify all of its new production cars from 2021 onwards. ‘the INFINITI prototype 10 echoes the layout and design of some of the most evocative car designs of all time, where power was celebrated through high-powered single-seat competition cars,’ mentions karim habibi, INFINITI’s executive design director, ‘our new concept speaks of an electrified future, something which is reflected in its form and details. it is appropriate that we found inspiration in an optimistic bygone era in which cars were characterized by the simple love of driving.’

  • That is a beautiful design however I do have to say that it does have very similar shapes to another concept car who was unveiled at the Salon De Paris motorcar show 2017, which is so magnificent : The Renault Trezor

  • Compared to the Venice Speedster presented here a few days ago, this is a masterpiece.

  • Too bad it is so pricey… It would make a glorious outdoor bath sunk into the sand for my remote dessert homestead.

    Vladimir says:
  • If Infiniti adopts this incredible design language into their production, I am a new Infiniti fan. So many Japanese Design Studios are lost in swoops and cuts with 0 logic.
