Following a very interesting teasing campaign, Infiniti has taken the wraps off the Q50 Eau Rouge concept today on the inaugural day of NAIAS.

Baptized after the famous turn at Spa-Francorchamps, the Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge concept is an interesting approach to a road-legal car infused with Formula 1 looks and technology. It comes with an aerodynamic body kit adorned with carbon fiber parts (including hood and roof), as well as 21-inch alloy wheels, an F1-derived brake light and red brake calipers.

For the interior Infiniti has prepared a two-tone red and black look with a redesigned steering wheel, different seats and red carbon fiber accents.

Unfortunately, Infiniti doesn't specify what's lurking underneath the lightweight hood but they do say that if turned into a production model, the high-performance Q50 would have more than 500 bhp (373 kw) and 600 lb-ft (812 Nm) of torque. In the press release they mention the concept "hints at powerful intent" which in other words mentions a production model will likely come in the near future to try to put an end to the German domination.
