We knew Infiniti planned to debut a concept developed with European premium goods maker Louis Vuitton at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show. What we didn't know is it would be called the "Essence" concept.


This teaser shot, and the participation of Louis Vuitton, is all we know about the brand's future, but the "shark tooth" thing seems to be sticking around. We 're guessing this is a shot of the C-pillar of some sort of coupe or, coupe-crossover or coupe-sedan. If it's another part of the car there's something truly unique going on here.

Press Release
OLLE, Switzerland (February 17 2009) – Infiniti will show visitors to the 2009 International Geneva Motor Show the essence of its brand in one dramatic concept car. A celebration of Infiniti and its 20 years history as a creator of performance cars, the powerful concept will also be an inspiring exploration into the brand's future.
