All Infiniti Employees Are Stroking the Q60 as Production Starts

Infiniti is going to hate us for that title, but we just couldn't resist. That's what happens when all five of the press images released about the Q60's start of production show people caressing the body.

She is undeniably a pretty car, so much so that we want to call her "she" and not "it." That's the sort of treatment usually reserved for either your first car or some kind of Jaguar coupe.

We know that people examining the body of a car show that it's a luxury product. You need that kind of attention to detail to avoid unwanted blemishes that could ruin the ownership experience. But every time something debuts, we get press photos with employees doing the Smeagol "precious" look.

Pricing has already been revealed for this bad boy, and you might have a stroke of a different kind once you hear the Q60 3.0t Premium AWD stickers for $46,300. You could probably get an E-Class for that kind of cash.

There's also a cheaper 2-liter model with the 208 hp turbo engine from Mercedes that costs just under $40,000. Tell us what you think about the price, the styling and if the Q60 has any chance against the Mercedes C-Class and BMW 4 Series. We find that the huge depreciation old Infiniti had means people are unlikely to even try one.

Nearly all Infinitis are made in Japan and so is the Q60 Coupe. The people stroking the bodies are in Tochigi. That's a prefecture in the middle of the country where the make camera lenses and X-ray equipment. It's also the home of the Twin Ring Motegi Circuit, which hosts the only IndyCar race outside of the United States.

It's also where the Nissan 370Z and the GT-R are assembled, so the 3.0-liter VR30 twin-turbo engine used by the Q60 could eventually find its way into the R36.
