Infiniti Unveils 400HP Q60 Sports Coupe

Infiniti Unveils 400HP Q60 Sports Coupe

The all-new Infiniti Q60 is officially here. 

The automaker unveiled the new Q60 sports coupe at the Detroit Auto Show on Monday. And just in the nick of time we might add, with the Lexus LC 500 also making its big debut this week.

The redesigned model stays true to the sporty concept that debuted last year. It packs 400 horsepower and kicks out the G37 in style. (By the way, the G37 was renamed the Q50, which the company also showed off, in addition to the QX60 crossover.)

The third-generation Q60 keeps the familiar Infiniti coupe design with some tweaks. It gets a little more refined, lower, and wider. It also bumps up the sport coupe handling. It features the recognizable eye-inspired headlights and double arcing grille. The main difference between this model and its predecessor really isn’t so much its looks, but its handling thanks to a new drivetrain.

The Q60 has a new lightweight high-performance 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo engine from Infiniti’s VR powertrain family. There are 300-or 400-horsepower options. The top 400-horsepower engine is a substantial step up to the the previous 330 horses. It comes with 7-speed transmission and rear-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is optional. A four-cylinder 2.0-liter engine is also offered with 208 horses.

Aside from the new engine options, it gets top sport coupe handling with optional second-generation Direct Adaptive Steering and a Dynamic Digital Suspension for sporty handling. Both work together for faster steering and constant adaptability to whatever the road brings. There’s also a Drive Mode Selector that allows drivers to customize the driving experience.

The interior of the base model features an aluminum design trim with black wood accents. The top-of-the-line models offer carbon-fiber touches. Drivers can also choose between white or red leather upholstery.  And if sound is important to you, a Bose Performance Series audio system is also available.

The 2017 Q60 Coupe will arrive this summer.
