Infiniti ha presented at the Los Angeles Auto Show the new IPL G Convertible, an even more performing version of the already impressive G37 that will enter the market in Spring 2012. For those of you who don’t know about it, IPL (Infiniti Performance Line) is the acronym that the Japanese brand uses for its most sporty models since 2010 , in the same fashion as Mercedes and AMG, Audi and RS, BMW and M. Or at least this is what Nissan’s luxury brand would like it to be. Infiniti already released a G Coupe model graced with the IPL badge last December, and this convertible version will be just the second production model to get it.
Infiniti IPL G Convertible uses a 3.7-liter V6 with an output of 343 hp (256 kW) and 370 Nm (276 lb-ft) of peak torque mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission with a quick-shift Sport drive mode, adaptive shift control and paddle shifters. Wheels are IPL 19″ 7-spoke graphite-finish rims fitted with Bridgestone Potenza performance tires. In comparison to the standard G37, Infiniti has also added larger brakes, changed the exhaust system, re-calibrated the software, replaced the front bumper with a new one featuring integrated fog lights and added sculpted side sills. The new IPL G Convertible will be available in two colors only: Moonlight White and Malbec Black. Check it out in our photo gallery.
