Infiniti's Emerg-E: look familiar?
Gorgeous concept designed by same man behind 23-year old Tokyo motor show car…

"It's not like those instances where manufacturers show you a concept car but it's actually the real car in disguise," says Jerry Hardcastle, VP of vehicle design and development at Infiniti. "This is a concept car, and we decided to make it run. We're showing a running concept in public two weeks after we've built it. It's a little bit exciting and terrifying at the same time."
Terrifying, yes, especially when it breaks down. But the Emerg-E is ruddy exciting. Not least because it previews the sort of mid-engined madness Infiniti could cook up if there was a business case. Plus, it's almost entirely British.
