Infinity Project Black S

Infinity Project Black S is here. Every year automakers pour in millions of dollars into building new Formula One cars but Infiniti is bringing that technology to the normal cars we see everyday. Normal cars have absolutely nothing in common with Formula One cars as the latter comes loaded with top technology while normal road cars are just pretty fancy cars with no serious tech behind it.

This has put the automakers at loggerheads with the fans who only watch these cars from the sidelines but have no idea what it feels like to sit behind the wheels of a top engineering job like a Formula One car.

Nissan Luxury brand Infiniti is debuting the Infiniti Project Black Sat the 2018 Paris Motor Show, this car hints at how F1 tech could make it into cars normal people can drive.



Infinity says the car was developed in collaboration with the Renault Sport F1 team. Renault and Infiniti parent Nissan are joined in a corporate alliance which will see Renault’s F1 cars wear some Infiniti branding.

Infiniti and the Renault race team modified the powertrain to incorporate a hybrid system that, as in an F1 car, gets electricity from two sources. A “motor generator unit-kinetic (MGU-K)” harvests energy from braking, similar to the regenerative braking systems in production hybrids and all-electric cars.

A special pair of turbochargers comprise the “motor generator unit-heat (MGU-H)” element, using heat from the exhaust to generate electricity.



That electricity is stored in a 4.4-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack and can be used in two ways. It can spool up the turbochargers to make the gasoline engine more responsive, or power an electric motor that works with the V6 to turn the rear wheels. The hybrid system adds about 200 kilograms (440 pounds), according to Infiniti.

The hybrid system adds 163 horsepower to the V6’s output, for a total of 563 hp. Infiniti estimates the Project Black S will do zero to 62 mph in under four seconds. The stock Q60 seven-speed automatic transmission handles shifting duties.

Infiniti refers to the Project Black S as a “prototype” rather than a concept car, indicating that it might be more than just a show-off at the Paris Auto Show. An Infiniti press release also said the automaker “believes there is potential for a new model grade” offering greater performance. But it’s unclear if Infiniti would actually put a car like this into production.

Dude do u even know what u are saying? What serious tech are behind fomula one cars if not just for performance. And by fomula one cars I'm pretty sure u meant super cars, and they don't have serious tech inside those cars. So if dem ask u now between Pagani Huayra of $2.6 million and Mercedes s class which one has more tech which would u choose? S class is even too much, the new $45,000 Lexus ES 350 has more techs than many $1 million plus supercars.

Mr dumb, they are built for one thing and one thing only... Performance and u get the best out of them when u drive them on the track. The Bugatti veryron doesn't even have an LED display on it's dashboard. These cars are expensive because they are fast and not because they are comfortable to drive in. They have big a$$ engines, big a$$ exhausts, big a$$ brakes, sports suspension and lots of carbon fiber to save weight hence perform better. Many of these super cars don't have blind spot monitor, lane keeping assist, 360° cameras, adaptive cruise control, autonomous parking even when nobody is in the car, autonomous driving, apple car play, Android auto, cooled seats, massage function, full auto seats with memory (some supercars even come with manual seats to save weight), etc etc.

Yeah you correct. they are built for the track with only
a few being street-legal.
But they are very uncomfortable to drive in, as a daily driver. They even have ugly looking dashboards.
