Infiniti Q50 Red Sport 400 AWD – If It Ain’t Broke Make it Better
The 2021 Infiniti Q50 Red Sport 400 AWD is a run and gun sports sedan packing a hot new twin turbo 3.0 liter V6 pumping 400 horses and previewing new Nissan Z firepower.
A stunning looker, with only modest cosmetic work since its 2013 intro, the Infiniti Q50 with the dual Sports Exhaust Kit greets the driver with a throaty engine roar, a bit startling when approaching the car using the remote starter.
In addition to the sound and fury … the sleek look of the thick rich custom color paint, enhances the Q50’s sporty intentions, along with the ceramic brakes peeking through big spoke wheels and the 4.5 second 0 – 60 mph stats.
Inside the generally intimate spatial confines of this compact mid-sized sedan are enhanced by a wide open design theme with high-tone leather seating. The sweeping central infotainment command center is notably last gen with the twin screen controls. Sometimes we miss the good old days … of 5 years ago.
For the driver the $57,800 the Q50 high energy acceleration is particularly pleasing as the AWD drive system channels the power for excellent performance handling.
