The car is set to entertain the crowds attending the festival  with its 424kW V6 twin-turbo engine in the hands of  Red Bull team principal Christian Horner and Sebastian Buemi, Red Bull's test and reserve driver.

Buemi will also be available on the Infiniti hospitality stand for a question-and-answer session about the 2014 F1 season so far and what we can expect.

PRODUCTION NOT CONFIRMED

The Q50 Eau Rouge started as a concept and was revealed at the Detroit motor show earlier in 2014 but has since been shown at the 2014 Geneva auto show with a V6 engine.

In April 2014, during the Beijing auto show, Infiniti announced it has reached a further step forward towards a production version with a full working prototype now undergoing tests and evaluation.

It is this prototype that will be presented at the festival. There will also be a  ‘First Glance’ area close to the start line where the car will be displayed in-between its performance runs.

The Eau Rouge Prototype has not been confirmed for production but Infiniti will continue to listen to feedback from potential customers. - Newspress
