No one knows what it'll be called, but it's coming.
There's been a bit of kerfuffle on the Internet over the last couple days over Infiniti's decision to rename their entire lineup. Starting next year, all Infiniti sedans will be given alphanumeric names starting with Q—the G sedan becomes the Q50, the G two-doors the Q60, the M sedan the Q70—and all Infiniti SUVs will be given alphanumeric names beginning with QX—the EX becomes the QX50, the JX the QX60, the FX the QX70, and the current QX becomes the QX80. While defending the decision, new Infiniti boss Johan de Nysschen let slip that the car maker may be hard at work on a 550 horsepower super-M sedan under development.
Holy output, Batman!
The coolest aspect of the C-X75 supercar concept Jaguar unveiled at the 2010 Paris Motor Show wasn't the car's liquid metal panther styling or its electric drive system—it was the two microturbines it used to generate electrical energy in place of the traditional internal-combustion range extending engine. It was the part of the car we were most excited to see come to fruition...so we were rather sad when we heard Jaguar deemed the microturbines not quite ready for prime time and decided to go with a regular gas engine instead.
One built so far—what's another few dozen?
Picture if you will: A Swedish sport sedan capable of tangling with the most ferocious four-doors the world has to offer.
But it'll cost you. Extra.
The modern era has brought with it many marvelous advances in science—the iPhone, the F-22 Raptor, Taco Bell's Doritos Locos Tacos Supreme taco—but it's come at a price. We've lost our sense of patience.
1,200 horsepower right off the bat.
Should you be lucky enough to own a Lamborghini Aventador and spoiled enough that its 691 horsepower V12 feels about 500 horses too weak for you, the folks at Underground Racing have a solution for your woes. Hint: it involves turbocharging.
