IPL models will be identified by a special engine cover and trunklid badging. The letter "I" features a red insert representing sporty spirit while the Infiniti-violet "shadow" behind the letter appears like an Infiniti flag to indicate the brand's inspired performance promise.
As the first member of the Infiniti Performance Line, the IPL G Coupe features modified bumpers, aggressive side sills, a rear spoiler, chrome exhaust tips, and exclusive 19-inch wheels with Bridgestone Potenza RE50A performance tires. Inside, the cabin is nicely equipped with leather upholstery, red accent stitching, and 'Silk Obi' aluminum trim. Other goodies include a Bose audio system, GPS navigation, rear view monitor, and moonroof.
Power is provided by a 3.7-liter V6 engine with 348 hp and 276 lb-ft of torque. It produces an extra 18 hp and 8 Nm of torque as compared to the standard G Coupe, thanks to a high-flow exhaust and a revised ECU. Dynamically, the IPL G Coupe features a sport suspension with stiffer springs, high performance braking system, and a Viscous Limited-Slip Differential (VSLD).
