Infiniti’s 400HP Twin-Turbo Q50 Priced From $47,950

The 2016 Q50 Red Sport 400 will be the first Infiniti to use the company’s new twin-turbo V6 VR30 engine.

The range-topping Red Sport is offering 400hp and 350lb-ft of torque and will come in both rear- and all-wheel drive versions.

And because it’s the flagship of the range, Infiniti has added a few distinguishing features on it, including a sportier fascia, exclusive brushed-finish exhaust tips, unique 19-inch alloy wheels and special red ‘S’ badging on the trunk and front fenders.

The new 3.0-litre V6 is the most advanced V6 unit offered by Infiniti and offers advanced features like optimized turbine blade design, an optical turbo speed sensor, high capacity air-to-water intercooler system with dual water pumps, electronic wastegate actuator, e-motor valve timing control and an integrated exhaust manifold.

“The Q50 Red Sport 400’s new 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo engine is the most advanced V6 engine that Infiniti has ever offered, striking an ideal balance between drivability, efficiency, and performance,” said Randy Parker, vice president, Infiniti Americas. “It also offers the highest standard, non-specialty horsepower in class.”

Prices start at $47,950 for the RWD version and $49,950 for the AWD one, making the 2016 Q50 Red Sport 400 the only model in its segment to offer 400hp for less than $50k. Prices for the 300hp version of the same engine will be announced on a later date.
