Infiniti didn’t just have the EMERG-E Concept as its newsmaker in Geneva – the company also confirmed that the FX Sebastian Vettel version, shown in concept form in Frankfurt last year, is to enter a strictly limited production run of 200 units.
The production version, which is to be sold across Europe and Middle East regions, will have the 420 PS output of the concept, making it the most powerful Infiniti yet to be sold by the European business unit. It’s also set to be the most expensive, though the eventual pricing has yet to be announced.
The donor vehicle is Infiniti’s current flagship, the V8 FX50S Premium, and changes to the base SUV include increased power, lower weight, longer gearing, increased downforce and a lowered, stiffer suspension.
The result of a collaboration between Red Bull Racing’s world F1 champion and global brand ambassador, Sebastian Vettel, and Infiniti’s chief creative officer Shiro Nakamura, the special edition is set to have its first deliveries begin from early 2013.
