Infiniti in Australia is yet to have its big break. Whilst having more success than the recently departed Opel outfit, we haven’t quite seen it break out and make its mark, but the Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge could very much do that.
It’s the closest we’ll probably ever see to a Nissan GTR Sedan, and it is made by its luxury brand Infiniti. Built upon the Q50 sport-sedan, the Q50 Eau Rouge concept is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.8 litre V6 engine.
This engine produces 560hp or 418kW of power and 600Nm of torque, which puts this car up amongst the HSV Gen-F GTS, BMW M5, and Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG. What will give this an edge on its competition will be its full time all-wheel-drive and 50/50 torque split.
You can expect the Q50 Eau Rouge to power from 0-100km/h in less than 4 seconds. That’s right. Under 4 seconds for a sedan.
Unfortunately the Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge hasn’t been confirmed for production, but the reactions so far underline some pretty big support for Infiniti to commit to building a rocket ship like this.
