Pirelli is to develop bespoke rubber for the Infiniti Project Black S. This groundbreaking new concept vehicles hints at how a performance hybrid powertrain – developed in close collaboration with the Renault Sport Formula 1 team – could greatly enhance the performance and dynamics of an Infiniti Q60.
“We are very excited about our Project Black S and the work we are doing with Renault Sport Formula 1 team on performance hybrid technology,” said Tommaso Volpe, director, Infiniti global motorsport.
“Having another key Formula 1 player involved is proof of the interest it generates and will add even more focus on performance delivery. As we explore the feasibility of Project Black S, Pirelli’s input and knowledge, both motorsport and automotive, will be invaluable.”
“We were fascinated with Project Black S since Infiniti unveiled it at the Geneva International Motor Show earlier this year – we simply had to get involved,” said Paul Hembery, motorsport director at Pirelli.
