The tie-up between Red Bull Racing and Japanese luxury brand Infiniti may extend from the race track to the street.

According to a new reports, Infiniti is studying a new performance model that would be built with the Red Bull Racing team. Rather than an all-new vehicle, this would likely be based on a current model, much like the Renault Clio Williams.

“Our relationship with Red Bull is only five races old, but the trajectory for it is to move on and work more closely together. One way of doing that is on a road car project,” said Infiniti motorsports boss Simon Sproule.

The most likely candidate for a high-performance version would be the G37. The Red Bull car would likely go on sale in the next 18 to 24 months, at about the same time Infiniti will most likely be looking to renew its contract with RBR.
