Default Vettel in Japan for Q30

Ok well not just for Q30, its the Japanese GP race weekend for Formula 1 so naturally Vettel is in the Country. First Vettel met with screaming Japanese faithful at an event Infiniti put on at Nissans Japanese HQ in Yokohama.

After signing autographs for the darlings Vettel, Infinitis Director of Performance, was swept away to spend some serious time with Q30's Chief Vehicle Engineer. No word on anything obviously but Q30 is the first Infiniti Vettel is involved with from the ground up.

Speaking about Vettel, it would be really cool if they made a Vettel Edition Q30, just like how they did with the FX.



I can see it happening.

Do you think there would be a market for a performance vehicle of this size and type? if so who would buy it?

The Q30 would make more sense as a performance vehicle than the FX does. Once the car gets to be a certain size it makes more sense to be an off-road vehicle meant for towing and hauling instead of just driving fast.

The Q30 is a lot smaller than the FX though. I think it would be really cool to see a Vettel version of the Q30. It would definitely sell.

The Q30 is front wheel drive though.

If they did go with a performance orient Q30 they might make it an all wheel drive to get the most out of it. at least that make sense.

SO DISAGREE



FX/QX70 is barely an SUV, its a G37/Q50 with a bigger shell....

Lexus is making an F-Sport Version of it's Lexus CT, why can't Infiniti turn the Q30 into something like it? I can see them doing it, even if it's just a styling package with minimal performance mods that would be fine.
