Infiniti reveal retro racing car with a modern twist

Infiniti have revealed their latest concept car, the Project 9, which pays homage to racing cars reminiscent of the ‘40s and ‘50s, with a modern drivetrain.

The Project 9 will feature an electric platform from the upcoming new Nissan Leaf, in an attempt to imagine what an Infiniti 1940s F1 car would have looked like.

The electric motor will produce 148bhp and 236lb ft of torque, resulting in a 0-62mph time of 5.5 seconds and on to a not so impressive 106mph.

However, this car presents a clever idea of mixing old-world design, with modern day technology, resulting in a car that will stir the nostalgic senses and reflect modern day advancements.

If you can’t make up your mind on it, it’ll be displayed at the Pebble Beach concours event in California on August 20th 2017.
