This INFINITI Q60 is a premium sports coupe that combines a completely all-new design with exhilarating performance and dynamics. The taut, muscular lines of the exterior underline the Q60’s considerable performance potential – reinforced by an advanced all-new 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo engine.
Robert Beaty, General Manager, INFINITI Bahrain said, “The launch of the Q60 reaffirms the commitment of INFINITI to strengthen its product line up in Bahrain and around the world. The Q60 is characterized by flowing sculptural lines and strong, muscular proportions. Its sinewy athleticism confidently projects a sense of motion and power, coupled with an effortless, almost weightless stance to offer a driving experience that is both exhilarating and rewarding.”
The high performance 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo engine from the new and exclusive ‘VR’ powertrain family is born out of the brand’s extensive in-house experience in six-cylinder powertrain development. The new engine available with 400hp in the Q60 Red Sport 400 – has been designed to offer increased power and torque while maintaining high levels of efficiency.
A four-cylinder 2.0-liter engine, turbocharged to produce 208 hp, is also available. As standard, power is channeled through the Q60’s rear wheels for immediate dynamic responses.
The Q60 features newly-designed 19-inch aluminum alloy wheels as standard.The wheel gaps – the spaces between tires and wheel arches – are tighter than ever, further lowering the visual volume of the car and giving it a low, powerful stance.
The Q60 embodies INFINITI’s dedication to developing new and innovative driving technologies that deliver a confidence-inspiring and personalized experience behind the wheel.
The second-generation of INFINITI’s world-first Direct Adaptive Steering (DAS) is an advanced ‘steer-by-wire’ system that has undergone significant re-tuning to enhance steering feel and feedback without compromising comfort.
The Q60 includes safety technologies that actively protect people in and around the car. The Q60’s suite of driver assistive safety technologies allows the car to monitor for and identify potential hazards, actively assisting the driver to avoid those hazards, and, if a collision is unavoidable, mitigate the effects.
