An Infiniti representative has shed some light about the production-ready Q60 set to go on sale towards the end of next year.

Earlier this month, Australian media issued a report stating the Infiniti Q60 production version will be powered by two engines sourced from Mercedes-Benz. However, that won’t be the case as someone from Infiniti told AutoGuide the car will be powered by a V6 twin-turbo gasoline engine developed in-house.

There are going to be two versions of the Q60, with the base model offering around 400 bhp (298 kW) while the hotter model will get as much as 450 bhp (336 kW) all wrapped around in a more aggressive body. It’s not known at this moment whether the beefier derivative will wear the Infiniti Performance Line (IPL) badge.

The Infiniti Q60 is scheduled to hit dealerships late 2016 and chances initially only the 400 bhp version will be offered, with the high performance model joining the range sometime in 2017.
