Infiniti has released a first teaser image for its upcoming Eau Rouge concept, previewing a new high-performance model in the new Q50 sedan range.

Named for the famous Eau Rouge section of the Spa-Francorchamps F1 circuit, the new special will be revealed at next month's Detroit Auto Show.

For now, the concept is described only as a "design vision", previewing an enhanced new version of the Q50 that could rival the likes of BMW's next M3, the next C AMG and - if it comes - the new Lexus IS F.

“Performance is a key pillar of Infiniti’s DNA, and this car expresses a deepened design interpretation of that," Infiniti's executive design director, Alfonso Albaisa, said.

The Q50, with an abundance of technologies, provides a great basis for an extreme performance version, embodied in the design of Q50 Eau Rouge."

On the styling front, the concept builds on the new Q50's look by adding a sporting new front wing and splitter - all carbon-fibre by the looks of things, although this first image may be an early preview rendering.

We can likely expect more styling tweaks along the profile and rear-end, of course, but Infiniti has yet to reveal those elements.

Nissan's luxury marque has offered little in the way of technical details, promising only a motorsport-bred philosophy - related of course to Infiniti's relationship with the Red Bull F1 team.

And so the question: what powerplant should we expect to see powering the eventual top-shelf model in the Q50 range?

Above: the 'regular' Q50, due in Australia in early 2014.
