Default New York Auto Show: Infiniti G37 Live Reveal [VIDEO]


Infiiniti's Mark Igo presided over the dramatic (and very crowded) official unveiling of the automaker's G37 coupe. Since the G37 story spilled onto the net over the last couple of weeks, there were no real surprises surrounding it. That's not to say that the car still isn't impressive -- it clearly is. Hidden behind a stylized cage that was pulled aloft following a video intro, the G37 cuts a very attractive profile in person.

As the first Infiniti to be graced with the new VQ37 V6 engine, the coupe directs 330 horsepower to the rear wheels. That impressive power is accompanied by a 40% reduction in hydrocarbon emissions and a reported 10% improvement in fuel economy. Dynamically, features such as four-wheel steering help the car deliver as invigorating a driving experience as its sexy lines would suggest. Inside, the cabin adopts the new, improved G design language that was first featured on the G35 sedan, last year's New York debut for the brand. The luxury/convenience features you'll find are pretty much what you'd expect, including a rearview camera and adaptive headlamps. Want one? It'll land in showrooms in August with three model levels.

2008 G37 Sports Coupe


The all-new 2008 Infiniti G37 Coupe combines the exhilarating performance, stunning styling and modern, sporty interior of the original Infiniti G Coupe, accelerating each to new levels.

Leading the enhancements to the G37 Coupe is the first-ever application of the new 3.7-liter V6 engine with VVEL (for Variable Valve Event and Lift), which is estimated to produce 330 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque.

Along with utilizing a larger displacement than the previous 3.5-liter powerplant, the VVEL system combines hydraulic-controlled variable valve timing and electronically controlled variable valve lift on the intake side, helping to improve not only performance and response but also emissions and fuel efficiency. The engine is backed by a choice of an upgraded electronically controlled 5-speed automatic transmission with available paddle shifters or a significantly revised, more refined 6-speed manual transmission.

The G37 Coupe's enhanced platform and chassis offers an available advanced 4-Wheel Active Steer system (4WAS), which helps improve vehicle handling performance by adjusting both the front steering gear ratios and the rear suspension geometry according to steering input and vehicle speed. Braking and handling is targeted to be among the best in the luxury sport coupe class.

All of these advanced performance systems are wrapped in an all-new seductive skin. The G37 Coupe exterior design features flowing front fender curves, a wave-style hood, smooth front fascia with Infiniti's signature double-arch grille and L-shaped headlights. Inside, Infiniti-levels of craftsmanship are apparent throughout the all-new interior design, including the use of unique materials and finishes with traditional Japanese design cues. The new G Coupe also includes an extensive list of available technological features – a touch screen navigation system with XM® NavTraffic™ real-time traffic function, RearView Monitor and an available 11-speaker Infiniti "Studio on Wheels"™ by Bose® audio system with 24-bit Burr Brown DAC, 3-way door speaker arrays with 10-inch woofers and a 9.3-gigabyte Music Box hard drive.
