When Infiniti confirmed production back in March, they said only 200 units would be offered in Europe and the Middle East. Autocar reports only 50 units are tentatively reserved for mainland Europe while customer expressions of interest in the UK are still being determined. However, Infiniti has eight confirmed orders from Europe in addition to the very first unit off the production line reserved for Vettel himself.

Production is slated to begin in October with deliveries in first quarter of 2013. The Infiniti FX Sebastian Vettel concept that was first previewed in Frankfurt last year will largely remain intact with a switch from matt white exterior finish to metallic pearl white being the biggest change.

The concept was based on the FX50 S and features a carbon fiber body kit, lightweight components and a sport-tuned suspension that reduces the crossover's ride height. Power wcomes from a 5.0-liter V8 engine that produces 420 PS (309 kW / 414 hp). Acceleration from 0-100 km/h takes 5.6 seconds and top speed is 300 km/h (186 mph).
