More than just a tool to express beauty, the Infiniti design vocabulary is used to define both the premise and promise of Infiniti vehicles - usually with just a gesture or a simple line or two. The latest evolution of Infiniti's leading-edge design makes its world debut at the 2006 North American International Auto Show in Detroit in the form of the Infiniti Coupe Concept.

The Coupe Concept's dramatic exterior includes a full-length glass panel roof, gently waved shoulder line, modulated front fenders and hood, deep front spoiler, polished "bare metal-look" paint and large projector LED headlights and taillights with a special sunglass-style multi-layered surface treatment. It also features hidden, touch-to-open door handles and compact cameras in place of traditional outside rearview mirrors (images appear on flip-up screens located on each side of the instrument cluster).

Other exterior highlights include extensive use of brushed and polished aluminium on the Infiniti signature "double-arch" front grille and on other accent areas, including the side sills, dual exhaust finishers and integrated rear spoiler. The Coupe Concept's large 20-inch, 9-spoke wheels are painted aluminium-alloy and are mounted with low-profile Bridgestone Potenza tires (255/35R20 front, 275/35R20 rear).

The Coupe Concept interior combines a performance-inspired cockpit with a luxurious passengers space. It includes an Infiniti signature "double wave" instrument panel design, with five large gauges, violet-color gauge illumination and integrated multi-function (navigation, vehicle systems/HVAC controls) information display. A dramatic, full-length center console includes a sculpted leather-and-aluminium shifter knob, an Infiniti analog clock and other controls, including Infiniti's HMI (Human Machine Interface) controller similar to that recently introduced on the Infiniti M and FX. The three-spoke steering wheel includes elegantly crafted paddle shifters and wheel-mounted control buttons.

Specially textured aluminium accents, in the style of traditional Japanese "Washi" paper, are used throughout the Coupe Concept interior to project an image of artistic resonance and spiritual precision. The large, deeply bucketed leather-appointed front seats include integrated audio speakers in the headrests.
