2013 Infiniti IPL G Convertible
After the reveling of the stunning IPL G Coupe, Infiniti has introduced the new 2013 IPL G Convertible at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
The new IPL G Convertible features special aerodynamic styling pieces, the dynamic performance of an IPL-tuned V6, exhaust and suspension, 19" IPL aluminum-alloy wheels, and unique leather-appointed interior - along with the G Convertible's three-piece retractable hardtop.
"The Infiniti Performance Line, as demonstrated by our first offering, the IPL G Coupe, challenges the concept of ultra-high cost sports series. IPL pushes the premium performance envelope for buyers seeking a higher level of exclusivity and driving exhilaration, but does so with an Infiniti twist,"commented Infiniti Americas Vice President Ben Poore.
"Like every Infiniti, the new IPL G Convertible takes a different path from its established competitors, with its retractable hardtop that is designed to look as good with the top up as down. It's a terrific addition to the Infiniti Performance Line, taking the dramatic Infiniti G Convertible to an even higher level.", Mr. Poore added.
IPL G Convertible is powered by a 3.7 liter naturally aspirated V6 with 348PS (256 kW) and 370Nm (273 lb-ft) of torque. It is mated to a 7-speed automatic gearbox with Downshift Rev Matching and quick-shift Drive Sport (DS) mode with magnesium paddle shifters and Adaptive Shift Control (ASC).
Other interesting features are the IPL-tuned high-flow exhaust system with dual-pipe design, large brakes with 4-piston calipers up front and 2-piston at the rear and 19" IPL split 7-spoke graphite-finish wheels and low-profile W-rated Bridgestone Potenza RE050A performance tires.
The Cabrio is offered in two exterior colors - Moonlight White and Malbec Black and two interior colors - Stone and IPL-exclusive Monaco Red.
All IPL G Convertible interiors include red-stitched leather-appointed Climate-controlled front sport seats with embroidered IPL logos, manual thigh extension and driver's power torso and thigh support adjustment, red-stitched steering wheel, Silk Obi aluminum trim, IPL embroidered front floor mats, and aluminum trimmed pedals and footrest.
2013 Infiniti IPL G Convertible will hit the UK market in spring, next year.
