Infiniti’s super-hot Q50 Eau Rouge concept could be on track for promotion to full production status if new feasibility tests deliver the right figures.

Revealed first as a design study at January’s Detroit Auto Show, the Eau Rouge surfaced again in Geneva last month - this time with a huge 417kW turbocharged 3.8 litre six.

In Geneva, the carmaker could offer no assurances of a production schedule. So, how about now?

This week, keeping alive the dreams of buyers hoping for a ‘four-door GT-R’, Infiniti has the Eau Rouge prototype being put through the mill - on track - to determine if a showroom debut can be made reality.

The company has tasked its ‘Director of Performance’ (and F1 champion) Sebastian Vettel to pilot the prototype, sending the team to the Millbrook Proving Ground in the UK for “performance, handling and precision” tests.

"Vettel's invaluable feedback will be engineered into the next stages of the prototype's extensive development program – testing components, packaging and viability," the company said in a statement.

There is little additional information to be added to the pot at this early stage. Infiniti however says it will reveal details of the prototype and its testing programme at this month’s Beijing Auto Show.
