Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge could arrive with a $100,000 price tag

The Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge Concept made quite a buzz and the company looks determined to build a this new sports sedan. According to Infiniti President Johan de Nysschen, a production version of the Q50 Eau Rouge Concept will cost around $100,000 and will be sold in low volume, between 250-500 units a year.

The new Infiniti will not be a rival for the BMW M3, as it is powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 that develops 560 hp. This is the same engine used by the Nissan GT-R, bolted to a seven-speed transmission which delivers the power to the road via an all-wheel drive system.

Infiniti predicted that the Q50 Eau Rouge Concept accelerates from 0 to 60 mph (62 mph) in less than four seconds, while top speed will be close to 180 mph or 290 km/h.

The new BMW M3 is powered by a 3.0-liter high-revving six-cylinder in-line engine that delivers 431 hp and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) of torque.

With this engine, the M3 sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.1 seconds. The 2015 BMW M3 starts at $62,925, but the Eau Rouge will be substantially higher and sold in much lower volume.
