Infiniti Plans 550HP M Super-Sedan

In explaining the new naming scheme, Infiniti's chief executive reveals plans for a turbocharged V6 version of the M sedan with over 550 horsepower.

Infiniti has struck some controversy in renaming its entire model line under the Q and QX nomenclature, so the brand's president has reached out to explain the decision. Among other reasons, Johan de Nysschen reveals that Infiniti is planning "the introduction of several fascinating new models above and below the current line up... including some truly stunning performance cars in our future." The "below" part of the Japanese luxury brand's model expansion will include a new hatchback to be built in England to target the Audi A3 and Mercedes A-Class.

But what is the "above" part, the "truly stunning performance cars" that Infiniti has planned? Nysschen reveals that his company is preparing a version of the M sedan with a forced-induction V6 producing over 550 horsepower. Could this be the model which Infiniti is developing through its partnership with the world champion Red Bull Racing team? More than likely. In the meantime we'll just have to sit tight and see how this model shapes up.
