Infiniti just teased a gorgeous new Gran Turismo prototype and now is showing some ankle on its new Q60 Coupe. This concept is headed for Detroit and is said to be nearly 98-percent of what the real-life Q60 Coupe will be when introduced in August as a 2016 model.
The most action is of course around the doors and glasshouse, where the Q60 has a far more expressive and aggressive roofline and C-pillar treatment versus its sibling, the Q50 sedan. The lower front wheel-arch also shows a dramatic vent between the tire opening and the door, which is a popular aero assist for racing cars to vent turbo heat as well as release any air pressure caught from the brake ducts up front.
This concept teaser sketch also shows dramatic fender bulging and widebody type flares in a more aggressive style than the coupe – perhaps half-way between the Q50S and the Q50 Eau Rouge concept.
