As part of its electrification project for its portfolio from 2021, Infiniti will announce a new prototype of the Black Project S in Paris, which shows how hybrid-fiber hybrid technology can be implemented in Formula One cars.
Following the design of the INFINITI Negre S 2017 project, the new hybrid electric prototype illustrates the brand’s commitment to the development of high-performance electrified propulsion systems based on the experience of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance.
The prototype of the Black S project combines high-performance hybrid technology with the award-winning V6 turbocharged VR6 engine from INFINITI. Its exclusive energy recovery system (ERS) contributes to more power and torque than the engine on which it is based. The prototype of the two hybrid transmission mechanisms generates a power of 420 kW – 563 hp or 571 hp, while the VR30 vector engine produces 298 kilowatts (400 hp / 405 ps) of energy. The power / weight ratio is estimated at 235 W / kg, which allows you to accelerate from 0 to 100 km in less than four seconds.
The name Black S represents the highest level of performance, dynamic capacity, efficient aerodynamics and intelligent energy management offered by INFINITI. The prototype is based on the sports coupe Q60 RED SPORT 400 and was developed in collaboration with the Renault Sport Formula One team.
Roland Krueger, president of Infiniti and global president, said: “Infiniti has taken a new step on the road to electrification With the strength and success of the experience in electric vehicles of the Renault-Nissan Alliance”. -Mitsubishi, presents INFINITI. The Black S project, a high-performance prototype with F1 technology from a collaboration within the Alliance.
“The Black S project represents the pinnacle of electrification in the Alliance portfolio and is another example of INFINITI’s entrepreneurial spirit on its journey to electrification since 2021. The Black S project uses high-level intelligent energy management and systems. advanced propulsion, dynamic road and track skills, geared towards aesthetic performance: the collaboration between Infiniti and Formula Sport Renault, Black S Projecte, a prototype bank that experiments with new ideas and technologies, demonstrating that our partnership with Alianza could make our vision becomes a reality, “Krueger added.
Looking for a way towards electrification oriented towards the performance of the vehicle.
Designed in collaboration with Infiniti and Renault Sport Formula 1, and developed specifically for road vehicles, the Black Project S prototype has the first two hybrid propulsion technologies in the world and is the latest development initiative implemented by INFINITI to electrify its cars
The prototype of the engine train uses three generators (MGU). A single MGU-K unit (“K” means “kinetic”) recovers the kinetic energy of braking. The twin-engine electric turbochargers are equipped with two MGU-H units (“H” for “heat”), which recover the thermal energy of the exhaust gases. This allows the motor to generate electricity during braking and acceleration.
The inter-annual collaboration optimizes the aerodynamic efficiency of the Black S project
The Black S project represents the last expression of INFINITI DNA. The development prototype combines the organic and artistic design of the sport Q60 with greater aerodynamic efficiency and significant support with a functional functional aesthetic inspired by the sports car.
The partnership with the Renault Sport Formula One team has also provided INFINITI with access to more specialized development technologies, including advanced digital validation tools to optimize the car’s aerodynamics.
This experience is no longer evident in the design of a high technology rear wing, validated by the streamlined Renault Sport Formula One Team and finished in carbon fiber. The aerodynamic profile of the wing is similar to that of the Renault Sport Formula One Monza wing, which offers a relatively low support force for a Formula One car on one of the fastest circuits in the world. sports calendar For a development vehicle based on an approved car, the impact is significant. The digital modeling technology has allowed minimal changes in the shape and proportion of the wing. This commitment now offers a precise compromise between maximum stability in a straight line and high flexion traction.
