Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

Infiniti Performance Line (IPL) the rumored specialty-performance vehicle collection was officially announced today, and the first production vehicle from this group was revealed: the 348-horsepower 2011 Infiniti Performance Line G Coupe.

Set to make its official debut at the 60th annual Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, the new car will offer a new level of premium performance, as well as a new design featuring a new front and rear bumper/fascia design with integrated fog lights and black finishers, sculpted side sills, rear spoiler and chrome exhaust tips.

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. According to Infiniti, only two exterior colors will be available for the IPL G Coupe: Graphite Shadow and Malbec Black. Inside, we will find two new Graphite and Monaco Red (red interior only available with the Malbec Black exterior and 7-speed automatic transmission).

Also, all the IPL G Coupe interiors will include red-stitched leather-appointed front sport seats with manual thigh extension and driver's power torso and thigh support adjustment, red-stitched steering wheel, Silk Obi aluminum trim, and aluminum pedals and footrest.

Furthermore, the interior will include Infiniti Studio on Wheels by Bose premium audio system, Infiniti Hard Drive Navigation System, 9.3GB Music Box Hard Drive, Infiniti Voice Recognition for audio navigation, memory system for driver's seat, steering wheel and outside mirrors, RearView Monitor, Rear Sonar and moonroof (these items are optionally available on non-IPL G Coupe models).

As we said, the new car features a new IPL-tuned high-flow exhaust featuring a full dual exhaust design with independent left and right large diameter pipe. The muffler's inner structure and materials have been maximized to reduce pressure and provide an appropriate performance exhaust note.

Under the hoof, the 3.7-liter V6 engine management system has been recalibrated through air-fuel mixture and ignition timing optimization and now delivers 348 horsepower, an increase of 18 horsepower over the non-IPL models and 276 lb-ft of torque (+6 lb-ft). Regarding the Infiniti Performance Line, the manufacturer says that this sport division was created for buyers seeking performance luxury vehicles that express a greater degree of individual style.

IPL was conceived to create a new premium performance envelope, going beyond equipment upgrades to accelerate the very soul of Infiniti's Inspired Performance, said Infiniti Vice President Ben Poore. IPL brings all the elements together, styling harmonized with performance, exhaust note with acceleration feel, ride comfort and confident handling. It's the perfect formula for unmatched driving exhilaration.
