PEBBLE BEACH, CA -- August 11, 2014: Infiniti is partnering with TEN: The Enthusiast Network and Microsoft during the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance to create a unique consumer experience that combines traditional displays with high-technology.
In addition to ride and drive activities at the Infiniti Performance Pavilion at the Pebble Beach Concours Plaza, Infiniti worked with Microsoft to create the ultimate interactive experience designed to give guests a taste of Infiniti’s 560-hp concept sport sedan, the Q50 Eau Rouge. Custom XBOX driving simulators running Microsoft’s Forza 5 will be specially-loaded with the Q50 Eau Rouge, allowing visitors to virtually test their driving skills on the world’s most famous racetracks.
Also new for this year, is an interactive product app that will be placed on Microsoft’s latest Surface tablets at the Infiniti Performance Pavilion. The tablets allow users to watch exclusive video content, as well as virtually explore interior and exterior views of Infiniti’s key models within an immersive 360-degree environment.
Test-drives will be offered at the Infiniti Performance Pavilion Thursday through Saturday. The complete Infiniti line will be available, including the new Q50 sports sedan and QX60 Hybrid 7-passenger crossover. Also on display will be the redesigned 2015 Q70L luxury performance sedan – with its unique, extended wheelbase, adding more than five inches of rear legroom – and the QX80 Limited, a full-size SUV with an ultra-luxurious leather interior, exclusive wood trim and 8,500 pounds of towing capacity that goes on sale later this year.
