New Reveal At Geneva : 2009 Infiniti Essence Concept

This is the most important reveal yet. As you all may noticed, luxury brands like Mercedes, BMW, Porsche, and even Aston Martin are into the 4-door coupe segment. So at first, this Infiniti Essence Concept may look a rival to a Mercedes CLS, BMW CS Concept, Porsche Panamera, and Aston Martin Rapide. However, Nissan’s luxury brand today took the wraps off of the Infiniti Essence Concept at the 2009 Geneva Motor show, and it's completely different to what the other luxuries are doing.
Infiniti isn’t saying it will put the Essence into production just yet. It says that the Essence is a “celebration of Infiniti and its 20 years history as a creator of performance cars.” If we look deep into it, we find head lights from a G37, taillights from a FX35, and a wide-kit body with a fast-back roof. It's certainly a handsome beauty, but nothing compared to what's under the hood.
Power for the Infiniti Essence comes from a twin-turbocharged 3.7L V6 gasoline engine mated to a electric-hybrid system that runs on lithium-ion batteries. That gives two-seater, rear-wheel-drive hybrid coupe a total of 600hp. We've seen what 480hp Nissan GT-R could do, so if this Essence comes to production (we hope they do) with the same engine management system, it'll surely mess up the world! That why we think the Essence is aimed at cars like the Aston Martin One-77 we saw earlier.

So what do you think? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
