Infiniti M35h: Behind the Scenes Video of the World's Fastest Hybrid
Late last month, Infiniti released a video showing off what was crowned the World’s Fastest Full Hybrid, the M35h. In that video, Infiniti pitted the M35h against the Porsche Panamera Hybrid in order to show off its acceleration skills.
Even though the clip that was released back in January was barely over a minute and a half long, it’s amazing all the preparation work, setup, and equipment that was involved in filming what seems to be a fairly simple video. Infiniti has now released a behind-the-scenes clip showing off just what it took to make the video of a Guiness World Records setting car.
The Infiniti M35h hits 100-mph in 11.54 seconds and can run the quarter mile in 13.41 seconds.
And yes, that is a Mercedes-Benz ML carrying the gear. It’s pretty common to see outside advertising agencies that film these ads to use camouflaged MLs to carry the gear. There was one that was used at the Scion FR-S commercial too, that was recently shot in Northern California.
Check out the behind-the-scenes video below:
