Nissan's premium brand Infiniti have just launched a new, more sporting line of vehicles under the banner of "Infiniti Performance Line", or IPL for short.

Their first vehicle is this, the IPL G Coupe, which was revealed on 12 August 2010 at Pebble Beach in California.

The IPL G Coupe is based on the Infiniti G37 Coupe, which is itself based on the Nissan 370Z.

The Infiniti Performance Line isn't as hot or performance orientated as say, Lexus' F range or BMW's M Sport, instead they are just mildly upgraded versions of the company's already lightly enhanced Nissan-based models. So you're quite right to ask; "what's the point?".

Well there isn't one really. If you're going to do an upmarket line of products that's fine, but to then have to do an extra upmarket model on top of that - which is still short of the competition - then perhaps that's nature's way of telling you to try something new. Or try harder. Again.

The IPL G Coupe is powered by a slightly (there's that word slightly again) upgraded version of the G37's 3.7 litre V6 engine. It now produces 348 horsepower @ 7,400 rpm and 276 lb-ft of torque @ 5,200 rpm. The increase in power was made possible thanks to a recalibration of the engine's computer management system, and a new sports exhaust. The transmission options include a close ratio six-speed manual gearbox, and a seven speed automatic transmission.

The suspension setup has also been lightly tweaked and benefits from a 20 percent increase in spring rate up front, and 10 percent increase at the rear.

Stopping power has also been improved thanks to a new braking system which uses 4-piston calipers at the front and 2-piston calipers at the rear. Ventilated discs feature at all four corners.

In the looks and comfort departments Infiniti has spent some time making the IPL G Coupe a little more refined than the standard G37. There are new front and rear bumpers with integrated fog lights, new side sills, a rear spoiler, twin chrome plated exhaust tips and new 19" wheels. Also unique to the IPL G Coupe is the interior trim colors, available in either graphite or red, although the red interior is only available with the Malbec Black exterior and 7-speed automatic transmission for some stupid reason.

Other standard interior features of the Infiniti IPL G Coupe include Infiniti Studio on Wheels by Bose premium audio system, Infiniti Hard Drive Navigation System, 9.3GB Music Box Hard Drive, Infiniti Voice Recognition for audio navigation, memory system for driver's seat, steering wheel and outside mirrors, RearView Monitor, Rear Sonar and moonroof. You can get all this gear on in the G37 - but its not standard.
