To help promote the launch of the Infiniti brand in the U.K., the luxury Japanese automaker will bring its stunning Essence Concept to the Goodwood Festival of Speed in September. Alongside the Essence will be Infiniti's brand new G37 Convertible. Sadly, Infiniti explicitly points out in its press release that while the G37 will be on sale this year in the U.K., the Essence will not.
The Essence Concept first debuted at the Geneva Auto Show earlier this year and was designed to help celebrate the brand's 20th anniversary. Not only does it look stunning, but it's an engineering marvel, boasting a 600hp hybrid powerplant. Under the hood of the Essence sits a 44hp direct-injection twin-turbo 3.7-liter V6, which is paired with a 140hp electric motor.
Lucky Goodwood spectators will be able to witness the first-ever public drive of the Essence Concept as it takes on the famous Goodwood Hillclimb.
As mentioned, Infiniti continues to hold its position that the Essence will not see production, but with Lexus set to launch the LF-A, perhaps Nissan's luxury arm will reconsider.
