Infiniti has unveiled a sensational looking new concept car at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Built to showcase the company’s design language going forward, the Infiniti Q Inspiration Concept integrates next-generation technologies into its futuristic lines.
For Infiniti, the most important of those next-gen techs is its VC-Turbo powertrain. The Variable Compression-Turbocharged engine is the automaker’s latest combustion engine and it’s a doozy. Unveiled a couple of years ago, the VC-T is capable of ranging cylinder compression from 8:1 to 14:1 – this allows for both muscular turbocharging to give larger-than-displacement power, and for high efficiency to give better-than-size fuel economy.
