Bugatti is on what's known as "a roll." In the last twelve months, La Marque, as it calls itself revealed five coach-built variants of its 1,479-horsepower Chiron—some of them tributes to Bugattis of yore and some of them 304-mph ballistic missiles.

How Infiniti’s Partnership With Formula 1 Could Rev Up Your Daily Commute



When it comes to any automotive manufacturer’s involvement in racing, conventional wisdom dictates the old adage of, “Win on Sunday, sell on Monday.” While there remains a scintilla of truth to that, minimum practical benefit is a tough sell when Formula 1 partnerships typically are loss leaders.
 
Still, often-profitless F1 sponsorships carry some worth in the long run with marketing reach. If the ante is upped to a technical partnership, such as Infiniti’s relationship with the Renault F1 Team, the long-term benefits shine a bit brighter.
