Q60S had been driven on Pistonheads
400hp, 4wd for 46k good value?
I think I need a test drive. Max torque is produced much lower down than the GTR, these will remain as rare cars in the U.K. But am worried about the mass, non twin clutch gearbox, electric steering and residuals.

I like the look of it and I think a test drive would be very interesting :)

 

I'm very pleased they like the 3.0 V6 TT.  Now, lets start seeing some concepts and artists impressions of what the 370Z replacement might look like with that engine under the bonnet (manual please!)

Will be interesting to see how much discount these will have.
Q50 2.2d are available at over £13k off.

That is a massive discount!

 

I liked this quote:

 

 

I wonder if this foretells the new Z car underpinnings. G35 = 350Z, G37 = 370Z, G60S = ?

We got a massive £15k off the retail price of out Inifniti. They are keen to get them out there that's for sure.

Where is it Paul, I know when we spoke before there weren't any local to you.

Looks very nice, is it a red one you are looking at?

So here is the brochure --> Attached File  Q60_MY16_UK.pdf   5.51MB   184 downloads

 

Just from the brochure and the review I've a few Pros and Cons:

 

Pros

Engine

Trick 4WD (l like the idea that power is heavily biased to the rear wheels but 4WD is there if you need it)

Interior tech (Infotainment system, etc.)

Mechanical tech (adaptive dampers, etc.)

 

Cons

No manual option

Wary of the steering (needs a road test for sure!)

Runflat tyres

 

I think the red looks great but it's a £1K option!!  If the blue is anything like Jeff's 370Z then that would be nice (still a £600 option though!), the odd yellow colour might be OK for me too but I wouldn't be brave enough to buy one unless I'd seen it first.  The various whites / greys / blacks do nothing for me although a nice pearlescent white like the 370Z Nismo might work well I guess.

 

If it's possible to get a discount like the ones quoted above then it would make it very temping, but it might be a case of jumping too soon if there is a 370Z based on the Q60s replacement on it's way.

 

My nearest dealer is Maidstone but I seem to remember someone (paul_k) saying something about them not being a 'full / official' dealer...???

No Maidstone aren't. Reading is his nearest. Infiniti are always quick to point out to me that Maidstone aren't actually 'official dealers'

They are the FGBarnes Group.  I don't know how long it will be before the Q60s becomes available for a test drive but I might be tempted to pop along and put some miles on one for them!

Another negative - it doesn't support Android Auto or anything like it.  That's a bit of a downer.  Someone I work with has a new Corsa and that does!

Had a good read of the brochure
Liking all the crash protection options and memory settings from the key
But see they have moved the flappy paddles to the steering wheel
For some reason I'm struggling to really like this car.
Deliveries are from March

I know what you mean Paul. In a way I'm quite excited but there is a list if things I'm not very keen on.

On the assumption that the 370Z replacement is based on this car, I wonder what they would change on the basic mechanics, if anything.

I definitely want a drive of one in March though :)

Have the dealers got a demo you can try? I take it this is a car for Sally? What does she think?

You reminded me of their decision to put a cassette player in the 350z Bose stereos. Someone at Nissan can be a bit retro sometimes.
