VIDEO: Infiniti to Produce FX Sebastian Vettel Edition

Infiniti has announced plans to produce the FX Sebastian Vettel version of the FX50 crossover that it created for its new ambassador Formula One World Champion Sebastian Vettel.

Vettel helped Infiniti create a special version of the Infiniti FX50 that features a 420 horsepower V8 and lots of carbon fiber pieces to increase the crossover’s downforce and to make it lighter.

The news was broke by Nissan Executive Vice President Andy Palmer at a recent interview. According to Palmer the the FX Sebastian Vettel edition is a “kind of pilot for IPL, the Infiniti Performance Line. It’s about being able to do our equivalent of AMG or M-series, and we wanted to test the organization. Can the organization cope with these kind of special versions?”

More details about the production version of the FX Sebastian Vettel Edition will be released later this year.
