That’s an unusual positioning Infiniti has gone for with the Q60 Red Sport 400, a positioning that can also be seen in terms of pricing. The cheapest BMW 440i available in the United States of America starts from $48,500 sans delivery, while the M4 goes for $66,200. In other words, the pricing and specs behind the Q60 Red Sport 400 are bridging a gap BMW has neglected.
Don’t, however, think that the 2017 Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 is a poor man’s performance coupe. The 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 under the hood is an aluminum-alloy DOHC 24-valve unit, churning out 400 horsepower and 350 lb-ft (475 Nm) of grunt from as low as 1,600 rpm, and on to 5,200 rpm.
The flagship of the Infiniti Q60 lineup also boasts sport-tuned Digital Dynamic Suspension, large sports brakes with red-painted calipers, aluminum for the pedals and paddle shifters, 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, semi-aniline leather sports seats, all the goodies you would expect from a go-faster coupe. Then again, the strongest point of the Q60 Red Sport 400 is the design.
"The new Q60 Red Sport 400 has more horsepower than we've ever put in any Infiniti sports coupe, and will hold a strong position against its competitors with a significant power advantage," explained Randy Parker, vice president of Infiniti Americas. "And, with its unmistakable styling and next-generation ride and handling technologies, we expect the all-new Q60 to continue Infiniti’s legacy of advancing the sports coupe segment."
