Vintage racing prototype by Infiniti

Revisiting classic vehicles can lead to some interesting end products, especially when new technologies are brought in.

The Infiniti Prototype 9 race car is a perfect example of this. It is a reimagined version of a 1940’s race car.

Although the car will not compete in any racing championships any time soon, the car can still hit some pretty impressive stats. Powered by a 148 hp electric motor, it can hit a top speed of over 100 mph and goes from 0 to 62 in 5.5 seconds. It’s only major drawback is it’s short run time of roughly 20 minutes on a single charge.

Still, with its sleek chrome design, it is great to see car companies like Infinity pay homage to the classics. For a firsthand glimpse, visit the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours D’Elegance.
