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."
My First Drive in the BMW i8 [Shmee's Adventures]
BMW presented the new i8 hybrid supercar for the official UK launch at an
event held in Mayfair, London. With two models on display I take a quick
look around the car before jumping in for a test drive.
Thanks to Phil Winders, UK Product Manager for the i8 for joining me and
explaining some of the functionality of the car on our drive. I must say
the i8 has left me very impressed with the integration of the hybrid
systems coupled with the overall feel and experience of the car.

2013 Lexus RX 350 vs Mercedes-Benz GLK vs Infiniti FX37 0-60 $53K Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) What's the best new all-wheel-drive luxury
Crossover that you can buy for $53,000.00? That's the question we wanted to
answer in this TFLcar Mashup review. Is it the new and refreshed 2013 Lexus
RX 350 or is it the new and refreshed 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK350 4MATIC or
is it the new and refreshed 2013 Infiniti FX37 AWD? The Lexus represents
the most popular vehicle in the segment, while Mercedes-Benz is packed full
of new safety technology and of course the Infiniti is the most sporty of
the three. In this fun TFLcar Mashup review we not only rate all three
Crossovers but we also see which one is fastest from 0-60 MPH.
Koenigsegg One:1 - Exclusive First Look [Shmee's Adventures]
I am incredibly lucky to be the first to jump on board the absolutely epic
Koenigsegg One:1 at the factory for a blast at the runway. With only a
little time between test runs and important work being carried out on the
car I was allowed a few runs in the passenger seat to experience the
mind-boggling power and performance in the first production 'megacar'.
Not only does test driver, Robert Serwanski take us up to 300km/h in
moments, but we have a little demo of the handling capability and a rather
cool powerslide. All in a car 'only' running in 1150hp mode and on Pilot
Super Sport tyres as opposed to the stickier Michelin Cup2s.
A huge thanks to Koenigsegg for allowing me the opportunity in such an
incredibly special car, stay tuned for some exciting things in the works
and plenty more footage with the Swedish hypercars on the Shmee150 channel!
Thanks for watching, Tim
