2011 Infiniti M Makes Virtual Debut at
Infiniti provided an advanced look at
the all-new 2011 Infiniti M performance luxury sedan at the 59th
Annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. This is the third
generation of Infiniti’s popular M and the first to be sold
across all of Infiniti’s 32 markets around the world, including
Like the current Infiniti M, the
next-generation design will be offered with V8 and V6 engines.
The 2011 M models will be designated the Infiniti M56 and
Infiniti M37 respectively, reflecting their more powerful,
larger displacement engines.
The M56 V8 is expected to offer more
than 400 horsepower. For Western Europe, the M56 will be
replaced by a V6 performance diesel.
The 2011 Infiniti M also features a
completely redesigned body, with authentic sports sedan proportions and
evocative new styling with a low front end and deeply sculpted fenders inspired
by the Infiniti Essence concept car. The new M interior promises to be pure
Infiniti, highlighted by the use of innovative materials, an advanced climate
control system, superior audio and an enhanced quality feel. Despite improved
performance from the new engine lineup, fuel consumption will be reduced.
In addition, the 2011 M will continue
Infiniti’s technology innovation leadership with a blind spot intervention
system. This industry-first system is designed to help alert the driver if
another vehicle is detected in an adjacent lane during an intended lane change,
and then help assist the driver in returning the vehicle toward the center of
the original lane of travel.
The 2011 Infiniti M, which is scheduled
to go on sale across the world starting from spring 2010, was
revealed through a unique “video mapping” process – in which a
“virtual M” was created on a 3D form. It is the world’s first
“virtual only” (no physical vehicle) automotive application of
this cutting-edge technology.
The 2011 Infiniti M will make its official
public debut later this year.
