Infiniti Unveiled First Photo of the Special Edition Sebastian Vettel FX

A few days after the Japanese brand published a special clip in which the Formula 1 champion, Sebastian Vettel, talks to Infiniti’s chief designer about an upcoming special edition of the FX, Infiniti decided to show us the first photo with the project, ahead of the Frankfurt debut next month.

As usual, details are pretty sketchy at this point, but Infiniti hinted in the past that the future model will be a performance flavor of the FX that will benefit from the partnership with the Red Bull Formula 1 team. Sebastian Vettel himself participated to the designing process of the new concept which is likely to enter production in a limited series early next year.

The Formula 1 champion was earlier this year named ambassador of the Infiniti brand, company officials announcing at that time that Infiniti is also collaborating with the German on a performance flavor of the FX. The first preview will come next month at the Frankfurt Motor Show as a concept.

“Since our first contact with Infiniti I liked their cars. A car can impress you in two ways: its looks and its handling. After I had the chance to test some cars in the range I became a big fan. They are comfortable as well as sporty when you ask for it. I am sure we as a team and myself can benefit a lot from the experience of Infiniti and I am very much looking forward to our partnership in the future,” said Vettel back in May.

autoevolution will be attending the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show, so stay tuned for some real up close and personal shots of the vehicles, as well as for first-hand details of the motorized contraptions presented at the event.
