4. Infiniti Essence

Debut: Geneva Motor Show
Year: 2010
Complex Says: Who knew Infiniti could design such a beautiful car? Resembling the offspring of an Aston Martin and Fisker Karma, the Essence—created by Infiniti design director Takashi Nakajima—put the best of Infiniti on display. There is a V6 engine mated to an electric engine that brings power (near 600 hp), the leather interior and luggage are designed by Louis Vuitton, and then, there is the styling: It is a perfect storm of elegance, power, and sophistication.
