(Canadian International AutoShow, February 2018) - The Project Black S Concept is a collaborative effort between Infiniti and the Renault Sport Formula One Team, celebrating their relationship. The Project Black S Concept was built suggesting a radical reinterpretation of the Infiniti Q60 coupe. An aerodynamically optimized new design, with deep body stamping from the Q60's manufacturing process, allows the Project Black S to retain the sports coupe's deep creases and flowing lines.

In addition to a more aggressive design, the performance hybrid powertrain being explored through Project Black S features an energy recovery system (ERS) to harvest energy, deploying recovered electric power to boost power and torque. Directly inspired by the dual-hybrid system proven in Formula One, it provides instant, significant lag-free acceleration. This technology does not yet exist in a current road car.
