Nissan Presents The New Infiniti G37 Coupe – rpmGo.com

The 2008 Infiniti G37 Coupe is a fully updated version of the G35 coupe that put Infiniti on the map as a serious player in the market for premium sporting coupes. But the real news is the power plant, which received an increase in displacement to 3.7 liters thanks to a 4.6mm increase in stroke and now produces 330 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. That’s 30 hp more and 30 lb-ft less torque than BMW’s 335i coupe. It represents an improvement of 24 hp and 2 lb-ft over the current G35 coupe’s 3.5-liter V6.

The coupe’s proportions remain the same, but there are significant detail tweaks that differentiate the newer, more muscular G. The grille now features Infiniti’s signature double arch, the headlights and taillights are L-shaped and the rear deck incorporates an integral spoiler. There’s also a distinct character line running the length of both sides of the hood.

G37 coupes will hit dealers on August 21 of this year. The prices won’t be announced until just before the on-sale date, but, if Infiniti follows tradition, however, it will undercut its German competition in price while offering similar or better performance. Currently, that means a G37 sport coupe with the five-speed automatic transmission will have to tally less than $44,000 — an easy task considering the current car with these options rings up a $35,750 tab.
