Infiniti has announced that it’s new Q50 Eau Rouge, will be getting a major transformation. Most people would say, it’s about time Infiniti adopted “the big guns”.
As you will read in the press release below, you’ll notice the most important fact here is that it is more powerful than the Nissan Skyline GT-R R35 2014 Edition. Even though it’s a single digit difference, the fact is. This thing will take down any BMW or MERC you throw it at it! It’s not only fast, it’s a practical vehicle, completely suitable for families of 4-5.
Take a look at this video from TFL Car, back when the M6 was first released. As you’ll see in the video, the most important difference is, the GT-R R35 just wasn’t practical, nor was it a family car of any kind. This Infiniti just filled that gap!
The new Infiniti, looks great! We can’t wait to see this thing in action!
Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge roars into life – 560-hp engine revealed
Twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 gasoline engine, 7-speed gearbox, all-wheel drive Power output of 560 hp and 600 Nm of torque
Q50 sports sedan to receive 2.0-liter turbo charged gasoline engine in Europe
Geneva / Hong Kong – Infiniti has boosted excitement in the high-performance premium sports sedan segment at the 2014 Geneva International Motor Show by revealing a powerful engine for the Q50 Eau Rouge concept. The beating heart of the Eau Rouge – a twin-turbocharged, 3.8-liter V6 gasoline engine – was revealed on the Infiniti show stand today.
The Q50 Eau Rouge – a high-performance concept car based on the premium manufacturer’s award-winning Q50 sport sedan – was first revealed at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show in January as a Formula One inspired, carbon fiber aero- enhanced concept. Q50 Eau Rouge now tells a compelling power story with a full 560 hp and 600 Nm of torque on demand.
“Building on the extremely positive feedback on the Q50 Eau Rouge at its recent Detroit Auto Show launch, we decided to further whet the appetite of performance sports sedan fans by engineering this powerful heart into our blood-red beast,” said Johan de Nysschen, president of Infiniti Motor Company Limited.
“A car with such pronounced styling treatments demands the very best in terms of high-performance powertrains, which is why we installed this V6 twin- turbocharged, 7-speed combination as an example of what a potential powertrain for the Q50 Eau Rouge may look and sound like.”
The 3799cc V6, 24-valve, twin-turbocharged gasoline engine partners a full- time, all-wheel drive system with 50/50 front-to-rear torque split. Predicted acceleration of 0-60 mph in less than four seconds and a top speed close to 180 mph would put the Q50 Eau Rouge firmly into the premier league of super- sports sedans.
The most powerful and exhilarating gasoline-powered Infiniti model has not been confirmed for production, but the unveiling of the latest iteration of the Q50 Eau Rouge in Geneva underlines the company’s determination to create engaging performance cars for a premium segment.

Expanding the Q50 powertrain range, and also on display in Geneva, was a new turbocharged 4-cylinder, powerful yet highly efficient gasoline engine that displaces 1991cc and develops 211 hp and 320 Nm of torque. Driving the rear wheels through a 7-speed automatic transmission, the engine comes to China in the spring and Europe in autumn before rolling out to other of Infiniti’s global markets before the end of the year.
