2012 Infiniti FX Sebastian Vettel version

Just six months after the idea first surfaced, the Infiniti FX designed for reigning Formula One World Champion Sebastian Vettel is unveiled at the 2011 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 2011 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 Infiniti 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." Sebastian Vettel, 2010 Formula One World Champion and Infiniti Global Brand Ambassador "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." Design and aerodynamics As Sebastian says, the first priority for his ultimate FX was to give it more performance. However, whether on the racetrack or the road, speed is just one part of the mix that goes to make a world-beater. All the car's systems, and in particular the aerodynamics, must be up to the task. In the Infiniti FX Sebastian Vettel version they are. The car's revised aerodynamics profile is the result of changes made by Infiniti designers and engineers after meetings involving Sebastian and Red Bull Racing personnel. A Red Bull Racing RB7 was even shipped to Japan to provide real life inspiration for the team bringing the World Champion's road car dream to life. Riding 20mm lower than standard and featuring a more aerodynamic, as well as more distinctive, Essence-inspired grille, the most obvious change is the addition of a carbon rear wing. Tests show that it delivers everything that its looks promise - and Sebastian sought - in terms of increased downforce, and stability, at the 300km/h speeds of which the Infiniti FX Sebastian Vettel version is capable. As well as a 30 per cent improvement in the coefficient of lift (Cl), the special FX boasts a 5 percent lower coefficient of drag (Cd). Boosting downforce while simultaneously cutting drag is one of the concept's major claims to fame. Even the door mirror housings have been shaped to increase downforce. Carbon is used for the splitter, sills, front grille, mirror covers and rear diffuser, trimming the weight of what is already one of the lighter SUVs in its size class. Design of the splitter and diffuser is inspired by the F1 car, as is the central rear fog light - just like an F1 car's rain light. The wheels are 21-inch black multispoke alloys with silver rims, designed exclusively for this car; they don't just look the part but also save weight over the standard 21-inch FX50 wheel. At 2049kg, the Infiniti FX Sebastian Vettel version weighs 46kg less than a standard FX50S Premium. Mechanical changes With an already potent 5.0 liter V8 under the bonnet, relatively little needed to be done to enable the world's most special FX to hit Sebastian Vettel's maximum speed target of 300km/h. The first job was to free the car of its speed limiter which electronically restricts all other FXs to 250 km/h. Even in standard form, with the VVEL V8 producing 390PS at 6500 rpm, the car has plenty of performance beyond its artificial top speed, but even so more power had to be found to deliver 300km/h.

2012 Mazda2 versus Infiniti FX50 0-60-0 MPH Performance Mashup Test
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Mazda 2 and the 2012 Infiniti FX50 have very little in common except for perhaps interior volume. In fact the two vehicles are about $50,000 apart when it comes to price. The Mazda 2 in this video has a sticker price of of around $17K while the Infiniti FX50 is just about $66K. So the question we wanted to answer was just how much more performance can do you get for your extra $50,000 USD. To find out we put the cars to the test to see how fast they go from 0-60 MPH and perhaps more importantly how far many feet it takes them to run from 0-60-0 MPH. If you are curious about the results. Check out the video.

Тест-драйв Инфинити FX50 у дилера. **************************** Т.к. меня задолбали однотипные комментарии в адрес меня и моих друзей - типа, все мы олени и хороших машин не видели, поясняю: 1. Машину выбирали для девушки, для зимней езды. 2. Мужик за рулем ездит на SRT8, видео с ним и его машиной есть на моем канале. 3. FX50 - не спорткар, даже близко, потому оценивались не только динамические характеристики, но и комфорт. 4. Девушка-менеджер ответила на все интересующие нас впоросы и была вполне компетентна. Приятного просмотра!
