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]
