Why not? Infinity built elegant retro racer with pure electric power – Prototype 9
One off project by Nissan luxury company Infinity, brought to the lights of day one of the most elegant and exciting design in decade. Infinity Prototype 9 is single seater retro looking racer with fully electric power.
As showoff of craftsmanship and passion or motoring, Hong Kong based Infinity, built single-seater which produces 120kW (148bhp) of power and delivers 320Nm (236 lb ft) of torque from prototype electric engine. light body and excellent aerodynamically allow of top speed of 170km/h and 0 – 100 km/h in 5.5 seconds. if you ever piloted Morgan or at least Mazda mx5, you know that are exiting numbers when you are in small, low to ground open-air cabin.
Unfortunately car will not be marked for production, btu rather being promo car for the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in France and also allowing testing of powertrain. Project was kept as secret inside company, but after buildign started all departments contributed to build this beautiful racer. I hope they setup workshop to build a few more examples, as ti would be great collectors and enthusiast car. If I have one in garage for sure it would be my favorite ride on the sunny weekend. Enjoy.
