2015 – INFINITI FX BY FORGIATO
The Infiniti FX by Forgiato leaves absolutely no one indifferent. It is one of the most cheesy and improbable creations that have appeared in recent times. The biggest reason is the absurd and disproportionate 32-inch, chrome-plated wheels with golden touches that look like the turbine of an airplane. Without a doubt, Forgiato, one of the most renowned brands of wheels in the market, makes one thing clear: speak badly, but talk about me .. But the Infiniti FX by Forgiato is not only distinguished by its gigantic wheels, but the color is also surprising. The car comes in a golden tone, which despite being flashy, and as there is taste for everything, can please Americans, especially the funkeiros …
2015 – INFINITI Q50L
Infiniti launches a long version of its Q50 sedan in the Guangzhou Salon. The new Q50L has China’s target market. Thanks to the larger wheelbase, the new version of Infiniti offers more space and comfort to rear passengers.

Infiniti wants China to become its second leading market and help sustain the company’s turnover.
