Infiniti considers the QX80 Monograph the future of luxury for SUVs, with wealthy patrons from various parts of the world, such as the Middle East, in mind.

This concept only focuses on the exterior design, with the assumption that Infiniti will follow up with an interior concept at a future date.

Apparently built on the current QX80 SUV chassis, the QX80 Monograph incorporates a very large grille with an oversize Infiniti badge, a formula that worked well for Cadillac's Escalade SUV.

The grille uses a diamond pattern with a multilayer, 3D affect.

The smooth sheet-metal sculpting extends around the rear of the vehicle. Two large exhaust ports and rear vents give it a performance look.

The concept uses 24-inch wheels, although Infiniti says the low-profile tires and protruding rims give it the appearance of 26-inch wheels.

As with any good concept, the QX80 Monograph eschews side mirrors in favor of cameras.
