2015 Q60 IPL Convertible offers dramatic sports styling, unique interior treatment, tuned 3.7-liter V6 and open-air exhilaration
The 2015 Q60 IPL Convertible is designed for one pure purpose – take the dramatic Infiniti Q60 Convertible to an even higher level of premium style and performance. Wearing the IPL badge, which stands for Infiniti Performance Line®, the Q60 IPL Convertible features special aerodynamic styling pieces, the dynamic performance of an IPL-tuned V6, exhaust and suspension, 19-inch IPL aluminum-alloy wheels, and unique leather-appointed interior. And it is all topped off wîth the Q60 Convertible's three-piece retractable hardtop.
Based on the premium foundation of the Infiniti Q60 Convertible, the Q60 IPL Convertible features an advanced VQ37VHR 3.7-liter V6. The engine management system has been recalibrated through air-fuel mixture and ignition timing optimization, raising the maximum horsepower output point to 7,400 rpm. To obtain a natural acceleration feel, the torque curve from low revs to the maximum torque point (5,200 rpm) was tuned for linearity. The IPL-tuned high-flow exhaust is a full dual exhaust design wîth independent left and right large diameter pipes. The muffler's inner structure and materials have been maximized to reduce pressure and provide an appropriate performance exhaust note. The result is a 30% reduction in exhaust pressure versus a base Q60 Convertible's Y-pipe exhaust system design.
As a result of both the exhaust system and engine management changes, the Q60 IPL Convertible generates 343 horsepower – an increase of 18 horsepower over the non-IPL models – and 273 lb-ft of torque (+6 lb-ft).
The engine is matched to an electronically controlled 7-speed automatic transmission wîth Downshift Rev Matching and quick-shift Drive Sport (DS) mode wîth magnesium paddle shifters and Adaptive Shift Control (ASC).
The Q60 IPL Convertible's enhanced dynamic vehicle performance focuses on providing confident handling, flat ride and smooth ride comfort. The IPL suspension tuning and damping management philosophy is designed to optimize each aspect of the suspension, effectively connecting the driver to the road surface while minimizing uncomfortable vibrations. Front spring rates have been increase 14 percent over the Q60 Convertible Sport model and rear spring rates increased 4 percent. Front stabilizer spring rates have been increased 6 percent over the Q60 Convertible Sport model and rear stabilizer spring rates increased 125 percent. Shock tuning has also been adjusted and incorporates rear HF-type shocks.
