    Infiniti bringing the Q60 Black S to the Canadian GP. 500hp, MGU-H, MGU-K, pretty cool shit if they actually make this thing.

    The car will be on display at the Crescent Street Grand Prix Festival, in downtown Montreal, from June 8-10. If you make it out to the festival, Renault Sport’s Formula 1 driver Canadian Nicholas Latifi will be signing autographs on Saturday.

    That's (to me) the best looking Nissan/Inifinity that I've ever seen - but sounds like it will be GTR money though.

    Looks like typical tacked-on-plastic japanese modern design.

    The Germans are shredding the Japanese on the design front right now.

    That is very handsome and if they do release it, it could be the first sub-$100K car to have KERS in it. Otherwise, what's the point? $100K+ is GTR territory, like you said.

    Since I totally derailed the thread, I guess it's my job to split it out.

    I actually went and test drove the Q60 Red Sport the other day, and trying to get my name on the waiting list for the Black S. The dealer doesn't know about it at all.

    The Q60 RS is actually a pretty solid bang for the buck car, it's as fast in a straight line as my RC-F, noticeably faster than the 440i, C43 and S5 that it competes with, and undercuts them pretty decently on price. The infotainment system is intuitive (I've spent 1.5 years with the Lexus system and it still frustrates me), and the noises from the V6TT actually sounds not too shabby.

    Complaints, tho, it handles like shit, understeer everywhere, so don't bother AutoX'ing the car or trying to have some fun steering input on an off ramp. High speed braking is a bit squirmy, but the thing comes with all season tires, so tires will probably fix that. The interior is also a bit bland (compared to Audi and Merc). I can't believe how bad BMW interiors look these days.

    If Infiniti can fix the handling issue, and the drivetrain actually makes use of F1 MGU-H and MGU-K effectively (no turbo lag, feels like NA engine), I could see myself paying $100k for it. It's not like Nissan doesn't know how to make a good handling car, so there's hope. A mini-GTR like this would be perfect for the Infiniti brand, since they got shafted by the GTR ending up in Nissan showrooms.

    It looks good and if they actually deliver, could be a great option for the price bracket.

    Having said that, if it depreciates like other Infinitis do, count me out. I wanted to like the Q60 red sport, but I'm afraid they'll drop in value by 40% per year just like the other Infinitis have in the past

    Looks nice and would be a good buy used after depreciation.

    Pretty cool, but isn't the Red Sport already ~3900lbs, adding these kinetic energy recovery systems can only make it heavier.

    Definitely looks very good though.

    Since the current Q60 red sport with 400hp is slower than the BMW 440, MB C43, and Audi S4 which all have less, I am sure a 500hp version will be slower than M4/C63/RS5 when it comes out. Infiniti's have always been great bang for the bucks but they haven't quite been at the same level. Remind me of the old Neon SRT4 in that regard.

    That said, I love the looks!

    I was baffled at reading up the reviews on the Q60 RS being slower than the 440 C43 and S4. I actually drove the Q60 along with the 440 and S5 back to back, and it was clear that the Q60 RS is faster.

    One thing that isn't mentioned is that the Q60 RS doesn't have any special launch features and is kind of sluggish off the line, which is probably why the 0-60 and 1/4 mile time is slower from a stop.

    Doesn't RS400 comes with AWD or RWD? May be RWD is having traction issue for a good 0-60.

    EDIT: I guess Canada doesn't get RWD.
