Sebastian Vettel Shows Infiniti Fans what the Q50 is Made of
Sebastian Vettel, Infiniti’s Director of Performance, spent the day at the track on June 4, showing the media and other car enthusiasts just what the Infiniti Q50 is capable of. Throughout the day Vettel managed to go around the track at the Canadian Tire Motorsports Park more than 50 times, and gave everyone a true show of what the vehicle can do. Throughout the day a variety of different members of the media as well as special guests got a chance to join Vettel right in the car as he raced around the track. It was a fun experience for everyone involved and a chance for Infiniti to show the world what their brand’s really made of.
Testing out the Autocross Course
Getting to ride with Vettel through the exciting track was a great experience for many members of the media but it didn’t give them a chance to try out the Q50 for themselves, which was something that many were very interested in. Fortunately for them there was an Autocross course open to the public to try out in the Q50. This advanced course gives drivers a chance to test out the sedan in a variety of trying conditions at high speeds. This is just what drivers need to get a feel for the vehicle and find out what it’s truly capable of.
Performance Capabilities of the Q50
Infinity decided to hold the event at the Canadian Tire Motorsports Park in order to show off just how advanced the vehicle is and how well it handles. It was taken around a windy course that demonstrates how well this car corners, and its acceleration capabilities. It can go from 0 to 60 in just 5.5 seconds making it very light on its feet.
The Canadian Grand Prix
Vettel decided to help with this event before going on to defend his victory at the Canadian Grand Prix later in the week. “The speed of the track, the excitement of the participants really made today special and was a great warm-up before I head to Montreal and focus on the race.”stated Vettel. Although he didn’t manage to pull off another victory, he came in sixth place and nearly within a second of Lewis Hamilton, the winner of the race. Not a poor performance by any means, and it’s clear that he can compete with any of the best formula one drivers out there.
With skilled drivers like Sebastian Vettel as part of the performance team it’s clear that Infiniti cares a lot about the handling of their vehicles. Although the Q50 is a far cry from a formula one vehicle, it has some distinct sporty features that link the two together, and that is one of the things Infiniti is striving for.
If you like cars that go fast, or cars that are capable drivers you should take a look at the Infiniti Q50. This car can certainly move, and it doesn’t look half bad either.
