European pricing has been announced for the new Infiniti G37 GT Cabrio. The cost for the GT Cabrio Premium was also introduced as being €3,600 over the non-premium edition.
Customers in France, Italy, and Spain will pay €52,600, €53,900, and €56,100 respectively. Those prices include the value-added tax for each country. Customers in the Netherlands are welcomed with a higher retail of €71,750, due to their higher tax rate.
UK customers will have to wait a bit longer to find out their sticker price. Some have estimated £38k for Great Britain, but that seems low to us. The automaker could be holding off to see what happens to the currency exchange rate in light of the weaker-than-normal Pound, and the ongoing political turmoil there.
The Infiniti G37 GT Cabrio uses a 316 horsepower 3.7-liter V6 petrol engine, with power going to the rear wheels. The car is capable of a 0-100 km/h time of 6.2 seconds, with an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph. Here you can choose the optional magnesium paddle shifters, wired to the seven-speed automatic transmission.
Infiniti calls this "the brand's most seductive design yet," as it perfectly blends a three-piece metal folding roof into the car's sporty lines. The four-door cabrio comes standard with 19-inch alloys, cornering Bi-Xenon headlights, sport brakes, and LED rear lighting. The electrically adjustable heated seats are made from a luxurious leather grain, while the dual-zone climate control will keep everybody in comfort.
The new Connectiviti infotainment system is also included, coming standard with a 2-gig Music Box mounted to the seven-speaker audio system. The system plays both CDs and MP3s, and has iPod and USB hook-ups for added versatility. Bluetooth, rear camera, and parking sensors are also included.
Step up to the Premium package and you get Connectiviti+, including a 30gb hard-drive based navigation system based on the Michelin Green Guide. The Music Box is upped to a 10gb model. Both systems are controled by touch screen. Meanwhile, premium seats are upgraded with memory, and a cooling system for those hot, summer days. The audio system is also made a bit more top-shelf, with a 13-speaker Bose system that filters background noise, and automatically reacts to the position of the roof.
