Production model to go on sale in 2016
Infiniti officially revealed its new Q60 Concept to the masses today at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, foretelling an inevitable production model arriving next year.
The new coupe, sitting just above the new Q50 sedan, will replace the aging G37/Q60 coupe currently on a well-worn platform.
“One look and it is clear: Q60 Concept is a strong statement from Infiniti designers that the exhilaration is real,” said Roland Krueger, the newly minted President of Infiniti, after the departure of Johan de Nysschen to Cadillac.
“Design is a key driver for developing a strong brand. Q60 Concept is another building block in Infiniti’s quest to refresh its portfolio with a strong and consistent design language. And in 2016, we will launch a new model heavily inspired by the Q60 Concept.”
Infiniti stated the Q60 will be powered by a new-generation 3.0L twin-turbo V6 engine, similar to that of German competitors, the BMW 4 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe. The Q60 will likely be available with rear- and all-wheel drive.
