Electric Infiniti sports car in action at Goodwood

14 June 2012


An ‘Inspired Performance’ is guaranteed at the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed – the first year that Infiniti, the performance luxury automotive brand from Japan, officially becomes a sponsor of the iconic motoring and motorsport celebration.


  Making its world dynamic debut on the hill climb will be Infiniti’s first running prototype of the electric range-extender sports car known as EMERG-E. When first shown at the 2012 Geneva motor show, the UK-designed and built electric car concept won huge acclaim for its stunning looks and engineering ingenuity. Such a special car demands a safe pair of hands to guide it up the hill each day and they don’t come much safer than F1 pilot Mark Webber, lined up for the Saturday run.

Jerry Hardcastle, Global Chief Marketability Engineer, commented: “The Festival of Speed crowds will be seeing EMERG-E in action for the first time ever, even before many of Infiniti’s top executives have seen it! Goodwood’s spectators will see not just an exquisite design but a superb example of Infiniti combining our own technologies with those of our partners to create an environmentally-friendly car, brimming with true Infiniti driver appeal.” 

The second Infiniti going up the hill will be the M35h hybrid. The world’s fastest-accelerating petrol/electric hybrid saloon, delivering 41mpg and producing only 159g/km CO2, will power past the festival crowd each day. Between runs the Infiniti M will take pride of place in the FoS-Tech arena.  

The Earl of March added: “I am delighted to welcome Infiniti to the Goodwood family, with its distinctive and highly-original way of showcasing its products and brand philosophy.  I am proud that Infiniti has chosen the Festival of Speed to dynamically debut exciting products such as the FX Vettel edition and EMERG-E concept globally.”

The Goodwood Festival of Speed runs between 28 June and 1 July.
