Infiniti G37 Coupe hits rally roads of Spain as safety car

It's almost stock but it still looks like fun. An Infiniti G37 Coupe is being supplied to the Royal Spanish Motorsport Federation as a safety car for the Spanish Rally Championship. The safety car checks the condition of the route before the event.

Dressed in the colors of the Royal Automobile Club of Catalonia, the Infiniti G37 Coupe safety car keeps its stock drivetrain, including the six-speed manual transmission, but has roll bar, racing seats, and communication equipment and GPS. Bilstein shocks, Michelin Pilot SuperSport tires, special brake pads and brake fluid and the huge rally lights complete the list of significant changes.

The fun seat goes to Marc Blázquez, World TT Champion driving for Nissan, while Salvador Belzunces rides along as co-pilot "who will be vital for assessing the state of the route before the competition."

Infiniti, although a common name in the U.S. as Nissan's premium car division, has been in Europe only since late 2008. Involvement in competition allows Infiniti to "extend...brand awareness." Perhaps, but driving an Infiniti G37 Coupe on the rally roads of Spain still sounds like a lot of fun.
