2012 Infiniti FX Sebastian Vettel Version (2011 Frankfurt Auto Show)
INFINITI FX SEBASTIAN VETTEL VERSION: THE CROSSOVER FIT FOR A CHAMPION
Just six months after the idea first surfaced, the Infiniti FX designed for reigning Formula One World Champion Sebastian Vettel is unveiled today at the Frankfurt International Motor Show. What began as a chat between the Red Bull Racing driver and Infiniti's Chief Creative Officer, Shiro Nakamura, at the Geneva Show in March is revealed, in concept form, as Infiniti's fastest car yet and, probably, the most exclusive crossover ever made.
With its sophisticated technology, lightweight components and features such as Rear Active Steering for maximum agility, the V8 FX50S Premium -- Infiniti's flagship as well as its best-selling model in some markets -- provides the ideal starting point for the FX Sebastian Vettel version. Changes including increased power, lower weight, derestricted top speed, longer gearing, increased downforce and lowered and stiffer suspension turn what is already a sports car among crossovers into a crossover supercar - the 300km/h reality of the World Champion's vision.
Infiniti's Corporate Vice President Toru Saito said: "The FX Sebastian Vettel version is unique and very much Sebastian's car. But at the same time it is a concept car for Infiniti globally."

"I have been driving an FX all this year and it is a car I love. It fits my lifestyle perfectly and is great fun to drive. But of course, it could go a little faster...
"I drive a lot in Germany on motorways that have no speed limits and have enjoyed my FX around the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Driving at high speed where safe and legal is part of my life. As well as a higher top speed I wanted even better stability in my FX, and that meant work on the aerodynamics. It is a tribute to the excellence of the standard FX that achieving all my targets required so few changes.
"This is the first road car I have helped develop. Usually I have hundreds of engineers building one car just for me. So it is fantastic for me to contribute to the design of a car. The result is an Infiniti I am very proud to have my name on. It is all I hoped for: 300km/h, plenty of downforce -- and I can still fit my mountain bike in the back. Plus it is totally exclusive -- and as an Infiniti driver, that's important."

2012 Infiniti FX35 Drive and Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Infiniti FX35 is a sporty
all-wheel-drive crossover that's packed with the latest technology. With
massive 21' inch wheels and an engine that produces just over 300 horsepower the Infiniti FX35
is not only sporty but also fast. So how does this Infiniti compare to cars
like the BMW X5 and and the segment leading Lexus RX350? We recently had
the chance to drive the Infiniti through the beautiful mountains around
Spokane, Washington to find out.
