Infiniti G35 Coupe Debuts at 2002 NY Auto Show

Infiniti on Thursday, March 28, unveiled its G35 sport coupe at the New York auto show.
Infiniti will start building the G35 in Japan this summer, and sales begin in the fall. Pricing is expected to start at less than $30,000.
The G35 has a tuned 275-hp 3.5-liter, V-6 engine that produces more than 260 pounds-feet of torque.
A six-speed manual transmission will be standard. A five-speed automatic with shift mode will be optional.
Also optional will be a navigation system with a 6.5-inch retractable monitor.
The four-passenger G35 will come standard with 18-inch wheels.
Infiniti said the G35 will be marketed primarily at men, with a median age of 37 and a household income of about $100,000.
Competitors for the G35 will include the BMW 3-series coupe, the Acura CL and the Mercedes C230 hatchback.

The car appears to have a very similar 'soul' to the new 350Z, having some design similarities, being about the same price, as well as similar specs. It is definately a great car, but let's just hope Nissan doesn't choke on having two models that will compete with each other.

Nice weelz, I wish I could afford one. I am not that fond of the looks, but I bet it looks better in person, as the Z did. But personally, I like the looks of the Lexus IS300. I wish they would add turbo and a 6 speed to it tho 8)
