The world’s fastest accelerating hybrid, the reigning Formula One World Champion, his team-mate, and the demanding Nürburgring Nordschleife all come together to mark the start of European sales of the INFINITI M35h. Yes, it’s a race.

On the right, Sebastian Vettel in the new M35h – 364PS of petrol/electric firepower, 0-100km/h in 5.5 seconds – and available at INFINITI Centres throughout Europe since 5 September.

On the left, his Red Bull Racing team-mate Mark Webber in the M37 S Premium ¬– 320PS of pure petrol V6 power for 0-100km/h in 6.2 seconds – equipped with the Four-Wheel Active Steer of the S Premium model.

Ahead of them both: the 20.8km and 73 bends of perhaps the most iconic, and certainly the most demanding, racetrack in the world.

Hybrid or petrol? Vettel or Webber? The winner of the very special race, arranged to mark the start of M35h sales in Europe, was revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show. View the video above. Download it by clicking the video link on the left.

Webber was “blown away” by how responsive the M35h is, while Vettel – INFINITI’s first Global Brand Ambassador – said the encounter between the two team-mates on such a challenging track was “good fun.”
