‘Performance Line’ designed to make Infiniti more competitive against European luxury makes

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

As you may know already, last week Infiniti introduced the "Infiniti Performance Line" or IPL, its so-called sport division. The first vehicle designed by the new division is the 2011 Infiniti Performance Line G Coupe which was officially revealed this weekend, at the 60th annual Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.

The new car comes with a new design featuring a new front and rear bumper design, new side sills as well as a new rear spoiler and chromed exhaust pipes.

The design is completed by the exclusive 19-inch IPL split 7-spoke graphite-finish wheels wrapped in low-profile W-rated Bridgestone Potenza RE50A performance tires.

Also, the 2011 IPL G Coupe comes with two exterior colors: Graphite Shadow and Malbec Black. The engine, the same found on the G37 Coupe, delivers now 348 horsepower; an increase of 18 horsepower over the non-IPL models and 276 lb-ft of torque (+6 lb-ft).

Ok, and now something you didn't know about this subbrand called IPL: apparently, it was designed to make Infiniti able to compete with the European luxury makes. Now, time will tell if the IPL can take on Mercedes-Benz's AMG or Bmw's M sport divisions. [via autonews - sub. required]
