For the fourth year in a row, Infiniti will sponsor of the Media Center for the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance (March 7-9, 2014). Since this year’s event will honor special Offenhauser-powered race cars, Infiniti will pay its own tribute to the engine supplier by unveiling a one-off Q60 Convertible sporting a similar paint scheme to the Rislone livery of the 1968 Indy 500 race winning car, an Offenhauser-powered Eagle.
The one-off Q60 Convertible was designed under the guidance of Infiniti worldwide design director Alfonso Albaisa. The car features a special wrap featuring a striking red, yellow, black and white design finished with the number three found on the winning car.
The specially designed Q60 (formerly known as the G37 Convertible) will be driven by Bobby Unser throughout the weekend. When not in use, it will be displayed near the Infiniti Pavilion Display next to the 1968 Indy 500 winning race car. Infiniti worked with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hall of Fame Museum to bring Bobby Unser’s 1968 Indy 500 race winning car to the Concours as well.
Infiniti will also display a selection of models including the 2014 Q70 luxury performance sedan, QX60 7-passenger luxury crossover, QX70 performance crossover, QX80 full-size luxury SUV and the new Q50 luxury sport sedan.
