Post Infiniti Performance Line debuts with 348-hp IPL G Coupe

08-12-2010 12:00 PM

Filed under: Coupe, Performance, Infiniti, Luxury


2011 Infiniti IPL G37 Coupe - Click above for high-res image gallery

Up until recently, Infiniti wasn't entirely sure what its brand was all about. But since its latest reboot, the brand has staked a claim as an unabashedly Japanese performance luxury automaker - in essence, the anti-Lexus.

Today, it's taking another step in that direction with the introduction of the Infiniti Performance Line and unveiling the first vehicle to wear the new badge: the IPL G Coupe. And anyone expecting an answer to BMW's M division or Mercedes' AMG line might be slightly disappointed.

Like most in-house component offerings, Infiniti is putting an emphasis on style, performance and OEM-level fit and finish, beginning with new front and rear fascias, side sills, rear spoiler and 19-inch seven-spoke graphite wheels. Matching the Graphite Shadow or Malbec Black exteriors are a new set of sport seats with thicker bolsters, manual thigh extenders (ala BMW), torso and thigh support adjustment, along with de rigueur contrasting red stitching.

Far more important is what's been done under the hood and at each wheel well. A new high-flow exhaust partners with a recalibrated ECU to raise output to 348 horsepower (at 7,400 rpm) and 276 pound-feet of torque (at 5,200 rpm), an increase of 18 hp and six pound feet over the standard G37. Channeling that additional grunt to the ground is a close ratio six-speed manual with a short-throw shifter (a seven-speed auto is available with paddles), a viscous-type limited slip differential and Bridgestone Potenza RE50A summer rubber sized 225/45 in front and 245/40 in the rear. A retuned suspension is also included, increasing spring rates by 20% in the front and 10% out back, along with slightly upgraded brakes.

Infiniti hasn't released an MSRP for the IPL G Coupe yet, but considering the performance components and litany of standard features, we're hoping the price premium isn't excessively high for what's essentially a glorified sport package. Get all the details in the press release after the jump.

It's pretty much a glorified sports package, as the article says.
Not much they can do with power figures without going FI, or swapping in a V8.

Reminds me of the Nismo Z model, maybe this is the G37 version of it.

The regular G37 coupe is more visually appealing to me.
The lines on this 'sports' model coupe doesn't flow with the car's other lines.
The front bumper also looks like a rip-off of the Lexus IS-F's.

Its pretty obvious that all the time it works like a gravel getter. I really like this car model and always have desire inside that I must try to use this.

I agree both with the front bumper and ride height being garbage. I like the regular 37 better.
