Just in time for the holiday season, Infiniti has decided to spread their holiday cheer by releasing another one of their “Carigami” papercraft models. In addition to folding wrapping paper for your friends and family’s gifts, you can now fold regular paper to make some of Infiniti’s vehicles.
You can see and print the paper model instruction manual in the gallery below (first seven pictures) or download the PDF from Infiniti’s website over here.
The new QX55 model is set to join the other 3 crossovers in Infiniti’s repertoire, which are the QX50, QX60, and the full-size QX80. To make the models, simply print them out, cut out the pieces (don’t forget to include the little tabs), and assemble by gluing together the tabs with matching numbers. If you need more help, each model does come with its own set of instructions. All 4 models are actually quite detailed, and do a good job of replicating their real-life counterparts.
The full-size QX55 will go on sale next spring, being almost identical mechanically to its QX50 sibling. Power for both is provided by a variable-compression turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that makes 268 hp (200 kW / 271 PS) and 280 lb-ft (380 Nm). Connected to that engine is a CVT that sends power to a front-biased all-wheel-drive system, which is standard in the United States and Canada. Fuel economy is rated at 22 mpg city and 28 mpg highway in the QX50, but it’s safe to to assume the QX55 will achieve similar figures. Pricing for the QX55 has not been announced yet, but we expect it to be a little more than the AWD QX50 Luxe’s starting price of $43,500.
