Before the Q50 sport sedan and Q60 coupe, there was the INFINITI G35. With jaw-dropping power and daring design, our original sport coupe remains an icon to this day. Discover how it paved the way for the next era of INFINITI.
There’s no question, the fist-generation G35 grabbed performance aficionados’ attention. Thanks to an impressive V6, this coupe delivered up to 280 horsepower with an automatic transmission – and 289 horsepower with a manual gearbox. Now, the Q50 and Q60 take that same driving spirit to new heights with an available 400-horsepower V6 twin-turbo.
Exceptional handling gave the G35 an edge on any route. With sport-tuned suspension, speed-sensitive power steering and optimal engine placement, this coupe was made for balance and control. The same is true of Q50 and Q60, which offer more advanced features like Direct Adaptive Steering – and the world’s first digital suspension system.
Sound and Fury
Few things are more satisfying than that performance-engine growl. The INFINITI G35 exhaust system delivered on both power and sound. Our engineers have since taken it further, enhancing it to bring you the dual performance exhaust on Q50 and Q60 I-LINE Red Sport.
Daring From Day One
INFINITI G35 Design
The G35's exterior exuded prowess on the road. Its taut lines sliced through the wind, while the signature grille and eye-inspired headlights lent a human touch. Inside, leather-appointed seats offered comfort and elegance, with an aluminum trim accenting it all. The same daring approach to design lies in both the Q50 and Q60 –refined to captivate a new generation.
The eye-catching INFINITI G35 rims put your style into motion. We made them in 17-, 18- and 19-inch aluminum alloy, with available high-performance Y-rated tires. Discover how we’ve taken our wheel design even further.
With plenty of safety features, G35 was all about driving confidence. For starters, it came with front, side and roof-mounted airbags, plus front and rear crumple zones. On top of that, it had Vehicle Dynamic Control. If you began to swerve on slick terrain, this system helped you take back control, applying select brakes to help correct steering. This now comes standard on the Q50 and Q60, which offer many other Driver Assist Technologies.
The INFINITI G35 coupe put comfort and convenience right within reach. With the INFINITI Navigation System, a power retractable 7-inch LCD screen and intuitive controls, its functionality was a cut above. Our cabin technology has since advanced. Both the Q50 and Q60 offer a dual touch-screen display, Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™ and more.
Automatic Temperature Control kept the G35 comfortable all year round. For even greater comfort, the Q50 and Q60 offer the Advanced Climate Control System. Paired with the Intelligent Key and Remote Engine Start, you can heat or cool the cabin before you step inside.
With a six-speaker sound system, the INFINITI G35 made every note shine. Since our earlier days, we’ve dialled up the entertainment. Now, the available Bose® Performance Series audio system immerses you in every frequency, with 13 perfectly placed speakers inside the Q60 – and 16 inside the Q50.
The Evolution of Performance
The G35 inspired the next generation of performance cars from INFINITI. Discover the Q50 sport sedan and Q60 coupe to experience the thrill on a new level.
