Many auto makers have a division dedicated to taking their stock models and upgrading them with sportier versions. Infiniti has joined the fray with the Infiniti Performance Line (IPL) which is available in limited numbers. Last year they introduced the first model to receive the IPL treatment, the G37 coupe. An instant success, they were all acquired soon after hitting the showroom floor. For 2012, Infiniti introduces the forthcoming 2013 IPL G Convertible. It was previewed at the major auto shows last year to critical acclaim. What can we expect from the IPL version of an already outstanding vehicle from Infiniti?
Philosophy: Total Vehicle Performance
A great sports car begins with the power it delivers. Ours is an IPL-tuned 3.7L 24-valve V6 matted to an electronically-controlled 7-speed automatic transmission with Adaptive Shift Control (ASC), Drive Sport (DS) mode and manual shift mode with Downshift Rev Matching (DRM). All of this combines to create a driving experience close to perfection. Other performance upgrades include:
• IPL-tuned high-flow exhaust
• IPL-tuned performance suspension
• Aluminum 4-piston front caliper and 2-piston rear caliper sport brakes
• 19-inch, IPL split 7-spoke aluminum-alloy wheels with graphite finish
• Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC)
Aggressive Styling That's Refined Where It Needs to Be
Demanding the most from all of its models, Infiniti designers insisted that the IPL G Convertible deliver the very best in luxury appointments, as well as, have an undeniable presence that begs for spirited drivers only. Outside, there's the IPL aerodynamic front fascia and side sills. Inside, the sport seats and red-stitched steering wheel are embroidered with the IPL logo. Luxury amenities include such features as:
• Bose 13-speaker Open Air sound system
• Climate-controlled front seats
• Infiniti Hard Drive Navigation System
Infiniti invites drivers to experience a new level of intensity in the exhilarating 2013 IPL G Convertible. Enhanced suspension, increased horsepower, aggressive styling and a three-piece retractable hardtop open you to a whole new world of inspired performance. Coming Spring 2012.
