2012 G37 Overview

More Consonants, More Raw There's an almost infinite amount to love about the Infiniti G37 line. In sedan or coupe form, X or S guise, the vehicles deliver that difficult-to-attain blend of rear-wheel-biased performance, content and refinement with a manageable price tag. With the excellent VQ37 3.7-liter V6 engine pounding under the hood and the buyer's choice of manual or automatic gearboxes pushing power to the rear or all four wheels, the G37 family is one of the market's best arguments against sliding behind the wheel of a BMW 3 Series. That is, unless you wanted a truly serious performance machine. German titans like BMW and Mercedes-Benz have been lapping European racetracks under their M and AMG banners for decades, honing performance hardware that customers would merrily plop down fat stacks of cash for later. While Japanese luxury automakers have been somewhat slow to embrace performance sub-brands, recent years have seen an explosion of consonant-laced badging stuck to sharper machinery. Among Japanese automakers, Lexus first dipped a toe in those waters with the company's F-Sport goods, and Infiniti has risen to the challenge with its new Infiniti Performance Line. By gracing the G37 Coupe with more horsepower, a sharper suspension, larger brakes and unique interior appointments, Infiniti has taken a first step into a world dominated by some of the world's most storied badges. But is the IPL G37 a serious performance contender or simply a bolt-on queen with delusions of grandeur? The 2012 Infiniti IPL G37 wears a number of aesthetic tweaks designed to set it apart from the rest of its family. Those start with a more aggressive front fascia, complete with blacked-out trim work and inset fog lamps. Designers rolled in new contoured side skirts as well as unique 19-inch split-spoke wheels wrapped in sticky Bridgestone Potenza RE050A tires. Around back, the IPL features a new rear valance that works well with the exaggerated side sills. A pair of comically large chrome exhaust tips peak from below the rear bumper and do much to spoil the mature proportions of the base G37 Coupe. In fact, there's very little about this machine that's understated. From its purposeful wheels to the coffee-can exhaust outlets, the IPL G37 is as much about being seen as it is about being quicker around a track. That fact extends to the available paint options. Buyers may choose between just two hues: Graphite Shadow and Malbec Black. Our tester came swaddled in the latter, and under direct sunlight, the color shifts into a very deep metallic purple that manages to land somewhere on the spectrum between royalty and a cheap velour suit. Ostentatious, thy name is 2012 Infiniti IPL G37 Coupe. And that theme continues indoors. The cabin is cloaked in a suite of bold materials, from lipstick-red leather door inserts and seats to large brushed aluminum accents spread along the dash, control stack waterfall and center console. IPL trim also swaps the standard pedals for aluminum sport pieces, and the contoured, leather-wrapped steering …
