Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge Concept has GT-R similar engine

Nissan’s luxury brand Infiniti has recently announced, during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, that the Q50 Eau Rouge Concept has a similar engine to the GT-R, under its hood.

The Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge has been already unveiled back in late 2013 and it was also brought to the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, just last week, but until now, no one outside the company knew what engine is found under its hood. According to the Japanese based automaker, the Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge Concept has a 3.8 liter V6 petrol twin turbocharged unit, which is similar to the one found on the Nissan GT-R.

In the Nissan GT-R, the engine is producing a total output of 542 HP (404 kW) at 6,400 rpm and 628 Nm (463 lb-ft) of torque, available between 3,200 rpm and 5,800 rpm. The Q50 Eau Rouge performance car has a seven-speed automatic transmission, which is different than the one found on the GT-R. The model has an aerodynamic body kit, red brake calipers, some carbon fiber parts, 21-inch alloy wheels, an F1 derived brake light and more. The Q50 Eau Rouge has been named after a famous Spa-Francorchamps turn.
