Inspired Infiniti Premiering Q80 Inspiration Concept in Paris



Next month, the 2014 Paris Auto Show will start a period known as the auto show season. A season that typically starts in North America with the LA Auto Show in November, European audiences receive the first exhibition of all-new production vehicle premieres and the presentation of mind-wondering concept cars. A show where the likes of Italian designer Pininfarina first appeared on the world stage, the show often motivates the debut of classy styling studies. At Infiniti, you can say the luxury car brand has received inspiration from competitors as well as from their individual designers in the latest concept car.

An interpretation of the four-door fastback premise demonstrated by the Audi A7 Sportback, Aston Martin Rapide and Porsche Panamera, the Infiniti Q80 Inspiration concept car doesn't appear to be following luxury car rivals when it comes to their image of a vehicle. Sweeping forward and backwards, the bodywork of Infiniti's concept design demonstrates some of the most radiant portrayal of the company's image. Contours all over the Q80 Inspiration concept is definitely derived from sports car design. The roof of the Infiniti Q80 Inspiration consists of a full-length teardrop shaped glass greenhouse coming to a point at the rear. The body is absent outer mirrors and door handles to project a smooth, unobstructed profile. A concept car 198.9 inches long, the Q80 Inspiration is planted on a wheelbase of 122.2 inches. Accented by 22-inch five-dual spoke alloy lightweight wheels, the Infiniti Q80 Inspiration rides on an advanced adaptive suspension system.  

Described as possessing "1+1+1+1" seating, the Infiniti Q80 Inspiration concept car's interior is configured to provide a personalized touch for four occupants. High-end materials such as carbon fiber, aluminum and leather applied through the interior creating the desired balance between sport and luxury comfort.

Last year, the Q50 Eau Rouge concept car was Infiniti's darling on the auto show circuit. The enveloping luxury performance of 560 horsepower proved so strong that the production version of the car has been strongly hinted. Could the Infiniti Q80 Inspiration generate the same clout to inspire it for a showroom near you?
