L.A. Auto Show: 2013 Infiniti IPL G37 Convertible unveiled image

The Japanese based automaker Infiniti has recently revealed its 2013 model year of the IPL G37 Convertible at this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show.

The new generation of the G37 is promising to steal some future customers from its main rivals and to battle the BMW 335 Cabriolet, the Audi S4 Cabriolet and the Mercedes E550 Cabriolet on the same level. The 2013 Infiniti IPL (Infiniti Performance Line) G37 is proving once again that it’s a worthy competitor to the German standard, but the new model hasn’t seen daylight for the first time at the Los Angeles Auto Show and has debuted earlier this year at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

“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. 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”, said the Infiniti Americas VP, Ben Poore.

Infiniti says that its new generation of IPL G37 Convertible is powered by a 3.7 liter V6 engine which is developing a total output of 343 horsepower and has a peak torque of 273 lb-ft, mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission. The 2013 Infiniti IPL G37 is expected to hit the United States showrooms early next year. Its price list and specifications will be officially announced close to its launch.
