2018 Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400

The new 2018 Infiniti Q60 Red Sport is the top of the line of the Q60 coupe model. This luxury car is designed with fascinating lines that emphasize the innovative silhouette of this attractive car. It is Modern and technologically advance. This Coupe is equipped with a 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo engine that can take you anywhere in seconds. This powerful engine can reach 400 horse power. It includes one of the best braking systems in its class what is perfect and necessary for this fast and strong car. It has a high quality interior finish.

The well tuned suspension of the Q60 and all the features and options included would make you feel like the king of the road.

The Q60 is available in RWD or AWD for an additional fee of $2,000.

Part of its sporty look includes red painted sport brake calipers, 20-inch staggered aluminum-alloy sport wheels with summer performance tires (Front tires P255/35R20; Rear tires P275/30/R20), and Red “S” exterior badges.

The Q60 coupe 2017 model was very successful. Now the new Q60 2018 continues the success adding some enhancements like the new 20-inch wheels with non-run flat tires for the RED SPORT 400.

The 2018 coupe is more sporty and looks more adventurous than the previous version, the 2017 Infinity Q60 Red Sport.  The 2017 model already was too beautiful, but the 2018 is outstanding.

 

 

I think that the Q60 is the most beautiful Infiniti ever made.

Infiniti History

Infiniti is the luxury division of the Japanese car company Nissan Motor, which combines increased comfort and high specifications. Initially Infinity was oriented to the North American market, intended for people with high incomes, however since 2005, Infiniti has entered the world market.

In 1950, Nissan Motor began developing and manufacturing cars for foreign markets. This business developed rapidly as in 1960, Nissan Motor Corporation was established in the United States, in 1966 in Mexico, the first Nissan automobile plant was launched outside of Japan, and in 1980 production opened in Europe and the USA.

The base model, the Q60 2.0t Pure, starts at $39,950.  In general the price range for the Q60 is very good, especially after you go for a test drive and start to fall in love with this beautiful Coupe.
