All three power the rear wheels and are mated to a seven-speed automatic gearbox. All-wheel drive models are available in other markets and can be imported into the UAE.
In 2014, Infiniti launched an Exclusive Designer Edition. Working with fashion designers, the brand made two exclusive cars of which there is only one of each known to have been produced. Exclusive to the American market, one model sports a chrome body with a unique trim inside. The second wears a silver front and black rear, red-carpet interior upholstery and other unique pieces. Both were sold for $75,000 online.
To appeal to those wanting extra legroom, Infiniti launched the Q50L in select markets. Launched in 2014, these models measure in at 48 mm longer than base models.
Infiniti dazzled the automotive industry by dropping the GT-R’s V6 3.8-litre twin turbocharged petrol engine underneath the bonnet of their Q50 Eau Rouge concept. Even though fans went bananas for such a crazy vehicle, Infiniti scrapped the project for unknown reasons.
In 2015, the brand released the Q50 Sound Studio by BOSE. Available in 2.0t trim, these cars are equipped with a navigation system and enhanced BOSE premium sound system perfect for audio lovers.
