Infiniti has been teasing a new sports car that it is working on called the Q50 Eau Rouge. The car has been seen at the car shows, but so far no real-world performance numbers have been offered. That will soon change when Infiniti unveils footage of F1 champ Sebastian Vettel running tests on a prototype.




Vettel is the Infiniti Director of Performance and he will be shown behind the wheel of one of the 560hp Q50 Eau Rouge prototypes. The video will be shown at the 2014 Beijing Auto show. Vettel tested the car at the Millbrook Proving Grounds testing facility in the UK.



The car was put through a series of performance, handling, and precision driving tests. Infiniti says that the feedback that is received from Vettel will be used into the engineering for the next steps of the prototypes development program. For now, all we get is the teaser video you see here.
