Bring It! GT-R Engine May Power Additional Infiniti Models

Joining the nearly-confirmed Q50 Eau Rouge.

The other day, we provided you with some details regarding the possibility of a production version of the Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge concept. This concept is powered by a tuned version of the Nissan GT-R’s insane engine, and is said to produce some 560 horses. Now, it seems that Nissan’s luxury division would like to really milk this engine for all its worth, with up to three models in its lineup designated as possible recipients of this powertrain.

This idea isn't just a gearhead fantasy, as it comes directly from Infiniti boss, Johan de Nysschen. “I think that we should expect to see at least three different car lines across the Infiniti lineup that feature that powertrain,” de Nysschen told Motor Trend. “You can imagine a high-end coupe, you can imagine a real high-performance luxury four-seater… and it seems to me a logical evolution to do the new Q60.” He also hinted at a possible four-door coupe model, slotting between the Q50 and Q70. We say, bring it on.
