Unveiled in March 2017, 'Project Black S' explores the potential of a future performance grade for INFINITI. Pirelli's contribution will include the design and construction of bespoke tyres developed exclusively for 'Project Black S'.

The ground-breaking project hints at how a performance hybrid powertrain – developed in close collaboration with Renault Sport Formula One Team – could significantly enhance the performance and dynamics of an INFINITI Q60.

'We are very excited about our 'Project Black S' and the work we are doing with Renault Sport Formula One Team on performance hybrid technology,' said Volpe.

'Having another key Formula One player involved is proof of the interest it generates and will add even more focus on performance delivery. As we explore the feasibility of 'Project Black S', Pirelli's input and knowledge, both motorsport and automotive, will be invaluable. We couldn't be happier to have them onboard.'

Through this partnership, Pirelli's renowned sporting DNA is demonstrated once more, which is chosen to guarantee the best compromise between performance and safety.

    'Project Black S' is a collaborative venture between INFINITI and its Renault-Nissan Alliance partner, Renault Sport Formula One Team, celebrating the relationship between the two.

    'It is great to have Pirelli involved in Project Black S,' said Cyril Abiteboul, Managing Director, Renault Sport Racing.

    'We believe in the potential of this project, and the work we have done with INFINITI on it so far is very promising. Working with the best partners is vital, and Pirelli is a great addition to Project Black S; having their experience and expertise on the tyre front will make this project not only more comprehensive but even more exciting too.'
