Infiniti Essence Concept may be the best new car when it comes to the market. WOW

Celebrating 20 years as a creator of performance luxury vehicles, Infiniti introduces a vision crafted to embody our core values and inspire future design: the Infiniti Essence. This dramatic styling, technology and performance statement is a 592-hp gasoline/electric hybrid coupe defined by exterior lines sculpted to express fluidity and speed. Destined to influence production models of the future, the Infiniti Essence vividly captures the balance between grace and power, and the unrestrained possibility of Inspired Performance™.

If you can't accept this as maybe one of the best looking new automobiles to possibly hit the market then you shouldn't be allowed to drive cars.

And if those comments were to appear it would show how bias some people off. I don't care what car company makes it you can't deny engineering excellence.

Wow, I'm floored! It's beautiful!

...and it does look like they're gunning for the Vette.

Side profile especially.

I doubt it'll make it to production exactly like this. Expect a massively toned-down interior.

anybody else see some vague aston-martin styling when they see it side-profile?
damned fine looking car though, i'd expect it to be seriously toned down before it hits production, that's some radical exterior/interior styling

I see a lot of Corvette in the side.The back end is ... different but I think I like it. The raised edge from the A-pillar, along the roof, and down the C-pillar is an interesting little design feature. I don't like how the sloping hood makes it look like its in-line with the windshield though.

The interior is obviously very well put together and made from super high quality materials.

But that doesn't stop it from being FUGLY.

Outside of the car is beautiful, though. Only thing is the headlights look like they are straight out of the GT-R parts bin.

EDIT: People will probably disagree with me, but it almost looks to have a bit of RX-8 DNA in its bodylines, also

I thought the same thing to when I looked at the side profile. The rear end is just so pretty and different that it just takes my breath away.

I also notice heavy 370Z cues... headlights, front end... taillights and a pinch in the rear. And the interior is FUGLY to me too. yech.

The side profile sure is nice! Like they made the StingRay Vette all fluid like.

Sorry, i like sharper angular designs... much like the new StingRay Vette. It just seems more masculin too.

Sorry, it's just photos of a show car. Engineering doesn't come in to play yet.

And not saying it's not nice lookiing but it is verrrrrrrry busy for my taste.

But I would agree the interior is nicer than a Cobalt.

With some of the modern designs that are coming forth, I can't wait to see what the next Mustangs and Camaros will look like.

Looks sharp, but I don't see how Infiniti would market this? Is it going to be $100K+? or will it be more like $55-60K?
