Infiniti says the Q60 Concept is very similar to the production car and features a two-door design with short rear deck and long overhangs, along with sculpted lines to give the car a dynamic look.
The concept and upcoming production car were developed specifically with the U.S. in mind, designer Alfonso Albaisa said.
At 184.6 inches long, 73.4 inches wide and 53.9 inches high, the Q60 concept is 2 inches longer, 1.5 inches wider and 0.3 inches shorter than the BMW 4 Series Coupe, one of the Q60’s main rivals.
The front features a big grille with twin lower intakes, narrow headlights and a lighted version of the Infiniti badge.
Inside, we see a 2+2 layout and a luxurious, hand-crafted look and feel. Alcantara and carbon fiber accents emphasize the car’s sporty angle. Many of the vehicle functions are controlled via a touchscreen and the Infiniti InTuition system.
The Q60’s platform is an aluminum unibody structure with high-strength steel to reinforce the structure, therefore, the car is light.
One of the engines offered is a new twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 which can deliver up to 550 horsepower and up to 553 pound-feet of torque when paired with a hybrid system. The engine is paired to a seven-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, as well as rear- and all-wheel-drive configurations.
