Crossovers and family sedans make up a huge part of the automotive market. These sensible, everyday vehicles are safe, spacious and efficient; in short they’re perfect for families, be them planned or… not. But for all their merits these cars are about as much fun as counting grains of sugar in a five-pound bag.
Infiniti has had quite the success with its G-series . The G35 coupe was a huge hit when it first came out on the market, and its G37 successor in both coupe and sedan form have well received. So it’s really no surprise that the Japanese automaker looks to expand their lineup with even more variants to offer.
The original assumption of Sebastian Vettel collaborating with Infiniti to produce a special edition IPL G37 Coupe may still be accurate, but now rumors are stirring that the Sebastian Vettel Edition Infiniti may actually be based on the FX model, rather than the G37. The belief is that Infiniti has already enhanced the G37 with the IPL line, and it wouldn’t make as much sense to further customize it by adding a Sebastian Vettel Edition.
In a new teaser video regarding the Vettel collaborating with Infiniti, a hint is dropped that the debut of the special edition model may occur at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Unfortunately everything is speculation right now, but Infiniti is causing some curiosity with how they’ll be taking advantage of their partnership with Vettel and whether or not it’ll pay off in the long run. Hopefully whatever model it is, Infiniti has done more than just some aesthetic changes but rather some serious performance modifications to give it a true Vettel-inspired driving experience.

We’ll be honest, we thought this whole matte black car craze would die out sooner than it has. We’re getting tired of seeing yet another poorly-done flat black car, but damn if this Infiniti G37 sedan doesn’t just look incredible. With the facelift on the new G37 sedan, we’ve been anticipating what the aftermarket would do with its new, more aggressive lines and this entry is everything we’ve been dreaming of.
Heavier, slower and more expensive; it’s the price you pay to have the sun on your face no matter what convertible you opt for, and the G37 is no exception. All convertibles do have a certain mystique, however, and Infiniti’s drop-top version of the G37 is definitely a stunning piece of work.
Interestingly the G37 Convertible is actually wider out back to accommodate the hard-top convertible roof. The body of the car is 1.1-inches wider and incredibly the track is even extended 1.4-inches.
Power is supplied by the 325hp 3.7-liter Nissan V6 with a seven-speed automatic standard and an optional six-speed manual.
In total the G37 Convertible weights 442 lbs more than the coupe.
