Infiniti has released official information about the 2011 IPL G Coupe. It features revised styling, a powerful V6 engine, and a sportier suspension.
Following this morning's spy photos, Infiniti has released official information about the 2011 IPL G Coupe.
As the first member of the Infiniti Performance Line, the IPL G Coupe features modified bumpers, aggressive side sills, a rear spoiler, chrome exhaust tips, and exclusive 19-inch wheels with Bridgestone Potenza RE50A performance tires.
Inside, the cabin is nicely equipped with leather upholstery, red accent stitching, and 'Silk Obi' aluminum trim. Other goodies include a Bose audio system, GPS navigation, a RearView Monitor, and a moonroof.
Power is provided by a 3.7-liter V6 engine with 348 hp (260 kW / 353 PS) and 276 lb-ft (374 Nm) of torque. It produces an extra 18 hp (13 kW / 18 PS) and 6 lb-ft (8 Nm) of torque - compared to the standard G Coupe - thanks to a high-flow exhaust and a revised ECU.
Dynamically, the IPL G Coupe has a sport suspension, stiffer springs (20% front / 10% rear), new shocks, a high performance braking system, and a Viscous Limited-Slip Differential (VSLD).
According to Infiniti Vice President Ben Poore, "When you drive the IPL G Coupe, the first thing you notice is the surge in sound and acceleration feel. The inspiring swell of sound is in complete harmony with the acceleration feel as engine speed increases."
Pricing information wasn't released, but the car will start arriving at U.S. dealerships in December.
