The first Infiniti Performance Line offering was unveiled at Pebble Beach last month in the form of the IPL G37 Coupe. The 348-horsepower G hardtop wears a factory-designed bodykit and came with engine and chassis tweaks to make things slightly firmer and faster. It goes on sale in December.
This week, its droptop brother will arrive at the Paris Motor Show. Infiniti hasn't announced power output, but we expect the IPL G Convertible Concept will probably be a shade less muscular than the coupe, as is the case with the non-IPL models. The automaker hasn't given away any hint of pricing, either, but VP Ben Poore did say "IPL promises unique driving attributes from other Infiniti models, without adding stratospheric prices," if that's any consolation. Stay tuned for complete details later in the week.
Infiniti today released photos of its new Infiniti Performance Line (IPL) G Convertible Concept, which debuts next week at the Paris Auto Show. The IPL G Convertible Concept features unique aerodynamic styling, the dynamic performance of an IPL-tuned V6, exhaust and suspension, 19-inch IPL aluminum-alloy wheels, three-piece retractable hardtop and a dramatic red leather-appointed interior.
"The Infiniti Performance Line is designed to push the premium performance envelope for buyers seeking a higher level of exclusivity and driving exhilaration," said Infiniti Vice President Ben Poore. "IPL promises unique driving attributes from other Infiniti models, without adding stratospheric prices."
The IPL G Convertible Concept follows the world debut of the first production vehicle in the new Infiniti Performance Line, the 2011 IPL G Coupe, at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in August. The limited production IPL G Coupe, which features a 348-horsepower 3.7-liter V6, high-flow full dual exhaust, special sport-tuned suspension and steering gear, IPL aerodynamic styling and sport-style IPL interior treatment, is set to go on sale at Infiniti retailers throughout the United States in December. Photos of the IPL G Convertible Concept and IPL G Coupe are available at infinitinews.com.
