We have no way of knowing exactly how much Infiniti has dished out on its partnership with the Red Bull Racing team and with its star driver Sebastian Vettel specifically, but you can bet it's a lot. You can also bet that the Japanese luxury marque is keen on capitalizing on its sponsorship deal beyond the logos that appear on the race cars and racing suits.

In fact, Infiniti is said to be working on two collaborative projects with the reigning world champions it sponsors; one with the team and one with the driver. Now, with the Frankfurt Motor Show approaching as fast as Vettel into a hairpin corner, the automaker has released a video that seems to suggest that it's ready to unveil the Sebastian Vettel edition.

Edition of what, we don't know just yet, but while logic might point us at first towards the G37 coupe, they've already taken that model pretty far with the Infiniti Performance Line. Instead, we have a feeling we'll be looking at a special edition of the FX crossover. We'll have to wait a little longer as the show's opening nears, but for now you're invited to view the video after the jump and arrive at your own conclusions.

      Formula 1 race car driver/champion with Renault engine & AWD 4000lb+ Infiniti Crossover. The connection couldn't possibly be any more clear. Srly stop screwing around and give us Infiniti version of GT-R, make it a sedan, a coupe, a supercar, even a concept car. Just do something fast.

        I agree it's still a Nissan, Lexus is still a Toyota.

      Why must Infiniti be paying? RedBull use Renault engines and Nissan is a part of Renault therefore so is Infiniti. It could be that as part of the engine deal Renault is asking for greater exposure of Infiniti to increase awareness. I've always assumed that the Infiniti link was marketing by Renault/Nissan.

      Sebastian Vettel has got a world of talent but there's something about him that I just don't like. I can't pinpoint it... but I just can't stand him. Anyone else feel the same way?

        Hes annoying me this year because hes winning nearly every race. The last couple years the points races have come down to the end of the year, but not this year.
