Infiniti has announced that it’s bringing a new retro-inspired prototype to the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California. According to Infiniti, the prototype is inspired by the ingenuity and adventure of early motorsports combined with the Infiniti’s contemporary “Powerful Elegance” design language.

“It started as a simple thought: What if we found a car, down at the southern tip of Japan, buried deep in the barn, hidden from all eyes for 70 years? What if in this car we found the seed of passion planted during our first Japanese Grand Prix and the power and artistry of INFINITI today? What would this discovery look like?” – Alfonso Albaisa, Senior Vice President, Global Design.

The prototype may recall fond memories of the past, but it will be powered by a futuristic EV powertrain.
