Infiniti showcased their ultra powerful, ultra luxurious concept car the “Essence” at the Councours d’Elegance in Pebble Beach. This sleek bullet of a vehicle pulls its 592-hp from a parallel hybrid system that combines an ultra-slim 3D electric motor with a 3.7 liter twin turbo V6 engine. The 3D motor has a power regeneration mode which keeps the battery pack charged.
The Essence exterior is beyond sleek. Its fluid, seamless structure gives the appearance of molten liquid being hurled through space. The exquisite design is a culmination of 20 years of Infiniti craftsmanship and is a pre-curser to future production models. The Essence gives us our first peak at Infiniti’s newest Safety Shield technology, designed with the intent to create the first collision-free car.
The Essence interior embodies Infiniti’s emphatic sense of style and attention to detail. The plush leather seats and molded cabin structure cocoon both driver and passenger in comfort and luxury. However, the icing on the cake is the inclusion of a three-piece Louis Vuitton luggage set, fitted perfectly in the vehicle trunk.
