Could the 2017 Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 be the prettiest car the Japanese automaker has ever made? Leaving aside curvaceous but impractical concepts, I suspect the answer is yes, but Infiniti hasn’t been swayed by glamour alone. Sitting at the top of the Q60 Coupe tree with 400 HP, the Red Sport variant doesn’t just want to look good, it wants to be the kiss of death to BMW and Audi grand tourers in the process.
The Q60 finds itself in an interesting spot. On the one hand it’s clearly prettier than Lexus’ RC, with the gaping “spindle” grille of the latter proving divisive. All the same, Audi’s 2017 S5 Coupe falls in the same price bracket, albeit with less power at 333 HP. BMW’s $66k+ M4 is out of reach, but if you can settle for 320 HP there are a few 4 Series Coupes that come in under the Infiniti’s sticker. The Germans may have less power, but they undoubtedly have more brand cachet.
