The third-generation Q60 hits the luxury sport coupe scene offering a three engine lineup that includes a turbocharged four-cylinder and a pair of twin-turbocharged V6s.

A 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder featuring 208 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque serves as the base engine for the new Q60.

An all-new twin-turbocharged V6 engine comes in two different flavors. A 300-horsepower example powers mid-range Q60s, while a 400-horsepower unit is installed in the range-topping Q60 Red Sport variants.

All available engines get mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission. Sadly, Infiniti has no plans to offer a manual gearbox in the Q60.

In addition to the 400-horsepower engine, Red Sport models receive unique 19-inch wheels, exclusive exhaust tips and red brake calipers.
