Seductive Infiniti StyleThe 2012 Infiniti G Coupe's smooth, aerodynamic design offers flowing front fender curves, a wave-style hood, expressive front fascia with Infiniti's signature double-arch grille and L-shaped High-Intensity Discharge (HID) bi-functional xenon headlights. The front fascia, revised for the previous model year, includes standard fog lights in the lower fascia area, while the strong side character line and side sills integrate with the large wheel wells and performance-oriented wheel and tire packages to transmit an added sense of power and vibrancy.
The rear of the G Coupe features broad rear fenders flowing into the large LED taillights, refined rear bumper, integrated RearView Monitor camera (except G37 Coupe base model), rear underbody air diffusers and large dual exhaust outlets with chrome finishers. The G37 Coupe Sport 6MT and G37 Coupe models with Sport Package add an enhanced performance look, with a unique front fascia and standard 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels with high performance tires. Eight exterior colors are offered for 2012: Vibrant Red, Malbec Black, Liquid Platinum, Blue Slate, Graphite Shadow, Black Obsidian, Moonlight White and Lapis Blue.
The G Coupe interior design features sophisticated craftsmanship, with a cockpit-oriented front driver and passenger area, Infiniti signature "double wave" instrument panel design featuring the Infiniti-signature analog clock and dramatic, full-length center console with a leather and aluminum-clad shifter. Dramatic "Shodo" aluminum interior trim is featured on the instrument panel, center console and door panels. The instrument panel includes Infiniti electroluminescent instrumentation with white illumination and integrated multi-function information drive computer display (average fuel consumption, real-time fuel economy, average speed, elapsed time, running distance, distance to empty, outside air temperature, warning displays, odometer and automatic transmission shift indicator).
A standard double hand-stitched leather-covered steering wheel is designed for maximum comfort and usability, with standard wheel-mounted audio and cruise controls. Solid magnesium paddle shifters are available for the 7-speed automatic transmission (Sport Package). The 8-way power driver and front passenger seats are appointed with Infiniti's exclusive premium leather and feature 2-way adjustable head restraints and a unique rear-seat access system (the front seats move forward automatically at the touch of a button to allow passengers into the rear seats).
The Sport Package (available on G37 Coupe Journey and G37x Coupe AWD) and G37 Coupe Sport 6MT add special sport-styled seats with thigh extensions and power adjustable torso and thigh bolsters for the driver, unique steering wheel stitching (except Stone interior) and high-grip aluminum pedals.
Technology and convenience features abound in the 2012 G Coupe and include items such as standard Infiniti Intelligent Key with Push Button Ignition, Remote Keyless Entry system, a tilt/telescoping steering column with increased travel, illuminated glove compartment and automatic temperature control. Also standard is a 6-speaker AM/FM/CD audio system with MP3 playback capability, Radio Data System (RDS) and center console-mounted auxiliary input, as well as a 7-inch color display and standard XM® Satellite Radio (XM® subscription required, sold separately). An 11-speaker Infiniti "Studio on Wheels"™ by Bose® with a 3-way front door speaker array using 10-inch woofers is standard on the Sport 6MT model and optionally available on G37 Coupe Journey and G37x Coupe AWD models.
The G Coupe's available Infiniti Navigation System features XM NavTraffic® Real-Time Traffic Information, XM NavWeather™ with Real-Time Weather and 3-day forecast (XM® subscription required, sold separately), and Zagat Survey® Restaurant Guide.
Three interior color combinations are offered - Wheat, Graphite and Stone.
Exhilarating Performance, Intuitive All-Wheel DriveAt the core of the G Coupe's stellar performance is its advanced 3.7-liter VQ37VHR V6 engine with VVEL (for Variable Valve Event and Lift) rated at 330 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. The VVEL system combines hydraulic-controlled variable valve timing and electronically controlled variable valve lift on the intake side to help improve performance and response. The VVEL intake camshafts, featuring continuously variable lift control teamed with the Continuously Variable Valve Timing Control System (CVTCS), allow for a 7,500 rpm redline.
The engine also features ladder frame construction, large crank journal and pin diameters, asymmetric piston skirts, twin knock sensors, an electronically controlled "drive-by-wire" throttle system, lightweight pistons, Iridium spark plugs and a symmetric twin air intake system. The specially tuned dual exhaust system features equal length exhaust manifolds and low muffler exhaust backpressure to help improve engine breathing. Both intake and exhaust enhance driving pleasure with their authentic performance notes.
The G37 Coupe engine is backed by a choice of an electronically controlled 7-speed automatic transmission with manual mode, downshift rev matching, Drive Sport (DS) mode and Adaptive Shift Control (ASC) that allows for quicker shifts in sporty driving situations and available solid magnesium paddle shifters; or a responsive, lightweight 6-speed manual transmission.
