Infiniti Q60 is a 400bhp M4 rival

What’s an Infiniti Q60 then?

The Q60 is Infiniti’s new mid-size sports coupe, available with a 400bhp engine that nudges the thing into BMW M4 territory.

What do I need to know?

That engine is a brand-new, 3.0-litre, twin-turbo V6, generating a meaty 350lb/ft of torque to go with its 400bhp. A seven-speed automatic gearbox dispatches that power to Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, which can send up to 100% of the go to the rear wheels.

There’s yet more processing power in the Q60, with Dynamic Digital Suspension, Direct Adaptive Steering and a Drive Mode Selector with no less than six settings. Further, three of the modes can be toggled through levels of ‘response’.

Infiniti claims the Q60 offers “a truly engaging sports car experience, with a unique balance of ride comfort and agile handling.” We’ll reserve judgement on that one, as layers of computers often muddy the waters.

We will pass judgement on the looks, though, and we really like it, with its sleek silhouette and distinctive styling. The interior features Infiniti’s dual-screen control system; it’s little different to that of the closely related Q50 saloon. The usual suite of active and passive systems are available, along with a generously stocked gadget cupboard.

Anything else?

A 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbo motor producing 208bhp and less powerful version of the V6 will also be available. We’ve got our figures crossed for one with the Nissan GT-R’s powerplant.

When can I buy one?

We haven’t got an exact date yet, but certainly at some point this year.

How much will it cost?

No word on that yet either, but we reckon the range will start in the low £30,000 bracket.
