Infiniti to debut retro prototype at Pebble Beach

BMW Unveils Concepts at Monterey Car Week

In explaining the thinking behind the prototype, Infiniti's Alfonso Albaisa said: "It started as a simple thought- what if we found a auto, down at the Southern tip of Japan, buried deep in a barn, hidden from all eyes for 70 years".

Mercedes has officially teased a new concept vehicle days after a tip off from the firm's design boss Gordon Wagener, who hinted that we'd see a new design concept "pretty soon". "What would this discovery look like?" asked Alfonso Albaisa, senior vice president of global design at Infiniti.

Despite is unashamed retro looks, beneath the skin Infiniti claims the show auto will actually pack cutting-edge technology and help debut its "advanced EV technology". Infiniti has based the vehicle on a barn find, somewhere in Japan. Further developing that appetite is the mention of the advanced EV technology that will feature in the vehicle.


The teaser video released by Mercedes hints at the styling of the new concept inside and out.

For Mercedes, it is a Maybach convertible Vision concept that is expected to follow on from a concept coupe unveiled in 2016.

Monterey Car Week gets started on August 11, with Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance scheduled for August 20.
