INFINITI has officially confirmed to edmunds that 2013 Infiniti FX Vettel Edition SUV model will not be sold in the U.S market.

2013 Infiniti FX Vettel Edition is powered by a 414-horsepower 5.0-liter V8 engine that can reach 186 mph in the top speed and 0 to 62 mph time to a claimed 5.6 seconds. With these power, the FX Vettel Edition will become the most powerful Infiniti SUV model which has been released by Japanese automaker.
For body design, Infiniti FX Vettel come with exclusive Moonlight White body color with the lone option being a carbon fiber rear spoiler. The FX Vettel Edition buyer should get ready for a white-gloves treatment that includes being able to track the production status of their cars on complimentary iPads. Of course, Vettel gets the first car off the line.
The big 21-inch wheels are dark save for the tips of the spokes and the outer rims, which impart a bit of visual sparkle. Finally, Vettel’s personal logo a V-shaped badge featuring his last name and a winding road that forms an “S” is slapped on both sides and the rear.
Inside, the Vettel Version FX has been made a bit racier with liberal application of Alcantara and carbon fiber accents. The steering wheel and shift paddles are wrapped in Alcantara, and the unique seats are upholstered in quilted black suede with purple stitching and SV logos. The same black suede also graces the roof pillars, sun visors, and headliner. The doors and center console get carbon-fiber touches, and anything that is silver in a normal FX is black chrome in the Vettel.
2013 Infiniti FX Vettel Edition price will start from 120,000 euros, or about $154,907 at current exchange rate. Only 150 units will be sold in certain global markets as limited edition.
