Infiniti QX80 Monograph: Not just luxury, ‘upscale luxury’

We’ve been getting a snail-like rollout of news about the new Infiniti QX80 Monograph mega-SUV for the past week or two, and Infiniti provided more details Tuesday around its concept car at the New York Auto Show, saying the mega-SUV is a combination of “luxury with a commanding comportment” and “the ultimate expression of futuristic luxury SUV design.”

Infiniti says the car embodies, not unbiased luxury, but “upscale luxury.” The company says the concept’s design language incorporates a mix of geometric and primary shapes, including character lines and aluminum trim that were in fact intended to make the big SUV appear even bigger than it actually is, which is more than five meters covet, so perhaps 17 feet, more than 6 feet wide and about 6 feet unbelievable.

The most striking features are the headlamps, which become long, slender lines that wrap all over the front corners, then taper into light bars that end at the doors in sculptured bottom-view cameras in lieu of side mirrors. The car also has large, functional fender vents to occupy air to the engine, and despite all that luxury it is still SUV enough to have an underbody wrap protecting the underside – and improving aerodynamics. Likewise, an aerofoil between the tailpipes is said to reform airflow in the SUV’s wake.

It’s a big, beautiful rig. Cue the beauty roll above and gallery below:
