Infiniti Emerg-e Breaks Down During Goodwood Run

As we had previously reported, the Infiniti Emerg-e range-extended hybrid supercar made its appearance at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and we must admit that we think it looks very good, a trait which may owe something to the fact that it was British-designed and built - Brits can make a great supercar that looks good, in a shed, with a couple of spanners, a Rover 3.5-liter V8, some steel tubing and sheet metal, let alone while an entire company like Infiniti is backing them.
Sadly, the Emerg-e, a car which is closely related to the Lotus Evora 414E, the car with which it is being co-developed, broke down on one of the course’s straights, on Friday. It was then passed by two Bentleys, the last one of which, a silver Continental GT V8 stopped to have a look at the concept and then accelerated hard, burning more gasoline in that single launch than the Emerg-e did in the entire run - making a nice noise, though.

We really hope that Infiniti works out the bugs plaguing their Emerg-e, as it is a very promising (and very green) sports car which looks good, has a big manufacturer backing it and is being co-developed by Lotus - what’s not to like?
