Drive Wire: Infiniti Shows Off the New Q50
The new genlemen’s express.
Infiniti has announced its gentleman’s express Q50 sedan will get a 400-horsepower twin turbo V6 for the 2016 model year. Infiniti says the all-aluminum unit is the most advanced V6 it has ever built, and indeed it’s chock full of turbo-centric goodies like an optimized turbine blade design, water-cooled engine charging, and nifty turbine speed monitoring electronics. We’re excited to drive this, of course, but just as excited to see the somewhat coarse old VQ-Series six leave the building.
