The Infiniti FX50 is Infiniti’s take on the Porsche Cayenne, so we suppose the FX Vettel Edition, with extra power and titivations, should be compared to the Cayenne GTS. But unlike the Cayenne GTS, the Infiniti FX Vettel Edition is a very limited edition car – just 200 are being built – and costs an eye-watering amount of money – £100,000.

For your £100k you get an Infiniti FX50 that’s had a raft of titivations to let Vettel reach a higher top speed on his regular joints up the Autobahn in Germany, as well as cosmetic additions to justify the price.

That means an extra 30bhp or so, lower suspension, new carbon fibre aerodynamic bits and an interior that a notch or two up on quality from the standard FX50.

Whether that tiny bit of extra power and slightly more road-focused setup justifies a price that’s almost twice that of the standard FX50, only potential buyers can judge.

Now the first FX Vettel Edition has arrived in the hands of the man whose name it bears, no doubt we’ll soon find out if Infiniti actually manage to flog the full run of 200 Vettel editions.
