2011 Infiniti M56: Now That Is Some Serious Door Design
February 01, 2011
Listen to an automotive designer talk about his or her latest creation and they'll likely tell you all about how "sculpted" the shapes and lines are throughout the car. More often than not, I look where they're pointing and see nothing but straight lines and flat panels.
That's not the case on our M56. Just look at that door panel, it's gorgeous, at least as door panels go. The shape of the wood trim, the creases in the leather folds and the simplicity of the controls are all beautifully combined into one cohesive panel design. It's striking and yet still perfectly practical, a design job well done.
