Just as sales are about to commence this month in the United States, Infiniti is finally revealing pricing for range-topping Red Sport 400 version of the 2017 Q60. Parking the ultimate iteration of the brand’s sports coupe in your garage costs $52,205 (after $905 destination) for a rear-wheel drive version or $54,205 with all-wheel drive.
Paying the extra money for the Q60 Red Sport 400 gets buyers the high-output version of Infiniti’s new 3.0-liter V6 biturbo engine. It now makes 400 horsepower (298 kilowatts) and 350 pound-feet (474.5 Newton-meters) of torque – compared to 300 hp (223.7 kW) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque from the powerplant’s standard tune. The range-topper also benefits from larger brakes with red calipers and Infiniti’s sport-tuned Digital Dynamic Suspension. Eagle-eyed fans can spot the Red Sport on the road from the different exhaust tips, model-specific 19-inch wheels, and S badge in red and chrome. Inside, the vehicles get semi-aniline leather sport seats and aluminum pedals. The Dynamic Sunstone Red exterior color is also exclusive to them.
For reference, the 2016 Q50 Red Sport 400 with the same engine and two additional doors starts at $48,885 with rear drive or $50,885 with all-wheel drive. That works out to savings of $3,320 if someone is willing to forego the coupe’s more curvaceous look for the sedan’s extra practicality.
For customers who like the Q60 Red Sport’s looks but don’t want to spend as much, prices start as low as $39,885 for rear-wheel-drive models with the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. The engine produces 208 hp (155.1 kW) and 258 lb-ft. Even these base models get standard features like 19-inch wheels, LED headlights, and 8-way power seats. However, Infiniti expects the standard-output version of the 3.0-liter biturbo V6 to take up most of the model’s sales. They start at $45,205 with rear-wheel drive or go for $47,205 with all-wheel drive.
The Q60 among the more stylish entries in the realm of luxury coupes. The Lexus RC looks similarly bold, but the German trio of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe, BMW 4 Series, and Audi A5 opt for more classic designs as a means to appeal to customers.

About the 2017 INFINITI Q60 Red Sport 400
The all-new INFINITI Q60 Red Sport 400 takes the third-generation of INFINITI's renowned sports coupe into a new level of empowered driving. The Red Sport 400 features 400 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque from a sport-tuned, high-output version of the new VR-series 3.0 liter V6 twin turbo engine – a more than worthy successor to the renowned, highly awarded "VQ-series" V6 that has been a mainstay of INFINITI performance models for many years.
In addition to the larger sport brakes with red painted calipers, sport-tuned Digital Dynamic Suspension, semi-aniline leather-appointed sport seats, aluminum-accented pedals and paddle shifters, the Red Sport 400 further benefits from exclusive Red Sport 400 exhaust tips, unique Red Sport 400 19-inch sport aluminum-alloy wheels (staggered for RWD models) and chrome finished red "S" exterior sport badging on the trunk and front fenders.
Like all 2017 Q60 models, the Red Sport 400 also stands out with its inspired styling. Daring curves, deep creases and flowing lines intensify the sport coupe's low, wide, powerful stance. Signature elements like eye-inspired headlights and double-arch grille make it unmistakably INFINITI. A highly coveted exterior color, Dynamic Sunstone Red, is available exclusively for Q60 Red Sport 400 models.
Inside, the Q60 Red Sport 400 interior expresses a sense of artistry and craftsmanship that matches the seductive exterior design. The interior is modeled around the concept of a "driver's glove" – fitted, personal and tailored for the person behind the wheel.
