The body of a coupe and the beating heart of a race car, Project Black S is a continuous partnership between INFINITI and Renault F1 Team that focuses on creating innovative technologies for an electrified future.
“A collaborative venture between INFINITI and Renault F1™ Team, the Project Black S prototype is a testbed for new ideas and technologies, demonstrating how our Alliance partnerships could make our ambitious visions a reality.”
- Roland Krueger, former President, INFINITI
The Power of Electrification
Project Black S shows INFINITI’s commitment to developing high-performance electrified powertrains.
The dual hybrid Energy Recovery System helps deliver instant electric torque and lag-free acceleration alongside the turbo-charged V6 internal combustion engine by harvesting both kinetic and heat energy.
Intelligent Energy Management
Project Black S generates more power and more acceleration than ever before — potentially revolutionizing the performance of our future road cars.
Instant Stopping Power
The brake by wire system and carbon ceramic discs give greater, more accurate control at high-speed for a confident and consistent braking sensation.
“A small and nimble, multidisciplinary team of experts from INFINITI and the Renault Formula 1 Team have been working together on Project Black S. Learning high-speed development and rapid prototyping from the race team has enabled INFINITI to adopt technology far quicker than going through traditional testing and validation processes.”
- Tommaso Volpe, Director, INFINITI Global Motorsport & Performance Projects.
