Infiniti wants to offer a Red Bull Racing variant - report

Infiniti's global head of marketing has confirmed a high-performance model could be jointly-developed with Red Bull Racing.

Following the recent Infiniti Red Bull Racing title sponsorship announcement, Infiniti's global head of marketing has confirmed a high-performance model could be jointly-developed with Red Bull Racing.

Speaking with journalists at the Los Angeles Auto Show, Simon Sproule said the two companies could create a high-performance model with the F1 team taking the lead on the project. He added, "At the moment it is nothing more than a discussion, but it's clear that the team would like to use its expertise in areas beyond F1 and we'd like to do something performance wise with them. The opportunity is there for the future now we have a long-term partnership and established working relationship in place."

If an agreement can be reached, the high-performance model would be based on an existing Infiniti and would be more sophisticated than the FX Vettel edition which featured minor styling and performance upgrades.
