The luxury arm of Nissan, classy Japanese brand Infiniti may have pulled out of the UK, but that didn’t stop many drivers from purchasing one while they could. At the manufacturers peak, just over 10,000 Infinitis were cruising around on Britain’s roads.
So with that many cars on our streets, it’s unavoidable that many, if not all, of them will one day meet their end via a crusher. Ironically, Infinitis don’t live forever, and ageing vehicles that are destined to fail their next MOT, or even ones that have suffered damage after a crash are all brought to us at Scrap Cars For Cash. No matter what has ended your Infiniti, we can help you too.
Reasons Infinitis Are Scrapped
Infinitis, like every other brand of car, can be scrapped for any reason. Typically, it’s down to accident damage or wear and tear. Accidents can happen when you least expect them, but that doesn’t stop the incident from rendering your car uneconomical to repair – or in other words, a write off. If your Infiniti has been crumpled after a crash, don’t be surprised if scrapping it turns out to be the best option financially.
Wear and tear eats away at your car much more slowly, which thankfully gives you the opportunity to make the most of your car before it begins to fail on you. With no new Infinitis being sold in the UK now, it’s only a matter of time before even the last one starts to show signs of depreciation. If this happens, you’re certain to encounter failing components and should one of these mishaps be deemed inevitable during an MOT test, you could be looking at an eye-watering repair bill. Instead of spending money just to scrape the car through the next 12 months, profit from it by selling it as scrap with Scrap Cars For Cash.
Scrap Infiniti Value
At Scrap Cars For Cash, we keep one eye fixed firmly on the ever-changing price of scrap metal. That’s because the value of your scrapable Infiniti is mostly determined by the value of the metal it’s made from. As such, heavier cars that contain more metal are typically worth more. However, there are other factors that need to be considered before a final figure is sent out to you in a quote.
The age, mileage and general condition of your Infiniti will impact the price you’re offered for your car, with cars in a more salvageable state liable to make you more cash. These cars will have more reusable parts within them that can be stripped out and put to use in other motors to get them back on the road.
Most Scrapped Infiniti
We’ve gone back through our records here at Scrap Cars For Cash to find out which models of the Japanese manufacturer’s cars were scrapped most often. The Q50 runs away with it, accounting for more than half of the total number of Infinitis scrapped. The Fx30 comes in second with the Q30 taking bronze.

Speaking of bronze, it was nowhere to be seen on the Infiniti colour chart. A huge surprise comes in the form of silver’s last-place finish, with the colour usually topping these charts for other car brands. Black accounts for a huge 55%, perhaps alluding to the Infinitis executive nature.
|Colour||% of all Infinitis Scrapped|
Almost neck-and-neck now, with just 2% more of the total Infinitis we brought in being scrapped outright rather than having parts stripped off them first. That doesn’t mean the majority were crushed and forgotten about, though. The 51% that were scrapped will have been disposed off ecologically, in line with the government’s legislation that required at least 95% of every vehicle to be recycled.
