Those of you that watch Formula 1 racing, probably notice Infiniti logos on the Red Bull Racing team’s cars, the team that has won the drivers’ and constructors’ championship the last three seasons. And the driver behind the wheel of these winning cars has been Sebastian Vettel; to celebrate his success and the two companies’ partnership, Infiniti is producing a limited production (150 units) FX50 Sebastian Vettel Edition.
The Infiniti FX50 Vettel Edition was designed by Sebastian himself and he’s the brand’s performance director now, looks like he might have a job lined up already for when he retires from F1, not that he’ll need the money.
The special edition FX50 comes with a tuned V8 engine that now produces 420 horsepower. Other upgrades include a carbon fiber front grill, mirror caps, roof-mounted spoiler, and a diffuser. The FX50 rides on 21” wheels and features a lower ride height and sports suspension. The SUV also benefits from a weight loss of 101 pounds; with added power and lighter weight, 0 – 62 mph (100 km/h) is achieved in 5.6 seconds, with a top speed of 187 mph (300 km/h).
The Infiniti FX50 Vettel Edition SUVs will be available in Russia, Western Europe, and the Middle East. Via: Infiniti
