There are sport sedans and then there are sport sedans. For many years BMW has played in this arena with the M3, Mercedes-Benz with the C63 AMG and Audi with the RS 4 and RS 5. Now it would seem Infiniti needs a piece of the super-high-functionality section with its Q50 in the skin of the Eau Rouge notion that we initial noticed at the 2014 Detroit automobile present in January.
The difficulty then was Infiniti didn’;t reveal the engine that would be below the hood.

These days, its proudly announcing that there’;s a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V-6 below the hood great for 560 horsepower. Sound familiar?
It truly is the exact same engine that powers Nissan’;s GT-R supercar, which in its most current incarnation requires the engine’;s total output to 600 horses.
Like the GT-R, the engine is teamed to an all-wheel-drive technique and mated to a 7-pace automatic transmission for a zero-to-60-mph time of less than 4 seconds.
There is no confirmation that this uber Q will make it to production, but it’;d be difficult for Infiniti to back down from tough the likes of its above-described competitors along with Cadillac’;s powerful V versions following this announcement.
