Infiniti has showcased a prototype version of its Q60 Black S performance hybrid at the Paris motor show. It’s powered by a combination of a 400bhp 3.0-litre V6 and a Formula 1-style KERS energy recovery system for a total output of 563bhp.

It uses a dual-hybrid powertrain heavily inspired by that of an F1 unit, with a regenerative braking system (MGU-K) providing one half of the system’s electric propulsion, and electric turbochargers combined with two heat energy collection units (MGU-H) recovering heat from the car’s exhaust gases under acceleration making up the other half. The petrol V6 is the same unit found in the road-going Q60 and powers the standard car from standstill to 62mph in 5.0sec.

The Project Black S utilizes the revolutionary Energy Recovery System(ERS), adding 160 hp for a combined maximum output of 563 hp. The ERS system harnesses kinetic heat and energy from acceleration and braking to spool up the e-turbos and electric motors, which have various modes of control.

The aggressive styling of the concept was refined by the Renault Sport Formula One team, adding carbon-ceramic brakes and sporty suspension. With all of the heavy electric components, much of the body is made in carbon fiber, cutting the moon roof and rear seats for weight. The aerodynamics have been streamlined, adding excessive downforce with a wing that’s designed for both straightaways as well as windy roads.
