Infiniti wows with its latest electric car concept
If you build it, they will come. Infiniti was hoping to save the official unveil of its Emerg-E concept car until next week's Geneva auto show, but the company has been kneecapped twice by leaks.
Nearly two weeks ago, the design of the vehicle was
leaked via design patent drawings
submitted to The Office of Harmonization for the Internal Market (
). This weekend, however, The Full Monty was released in the form of official photos of the vehicle.
There isn't much to say about the official specs of the vehicle as we're still a week away from its official unveil, but it is known the that Emerg-E is a range-extended electric vehicle with a mid-mounted 1.2-liter gasoline engine to charge its batteries. Think of it as a Chevrolet Volt without the dumpy looks.
As for the styling of the Emerg-E, some say that it has a bit of Ferrari 458 Italia in its side profile and a bit of Lexus’ new “
” grille up front. However, the overall design of the vehicle should give the designers of the
Acura NSX remake
some sleepless nights.
For now, you can just ogle the pictures of Infiniti's supercar concept:

But not 50% of the cost, sadly lol.
This looks like a Lexus that looks like a Ferrari and will probably cost almost as much as one. To that I say, what's the point? Just go for the real thing not some Toyota trying to be an exotic car.

Edit Infinity = Nissan, not Toyota.

Clearly you haven't seen the Lexus LFA(which stomps the guts out of the Audi R8 in all categories) or the R35 Skyline(I refuse to call it a GT-R). Nissan and Toyota are quite capable of delivering and exceeding the "real thing."
