INFINITI HAS UNVEILED the 2011 Infiniti M sedan at this weekend's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in California, due to go on sale in North America and Europe from the middle of next year.
Drawing styling inspiration from the Infiniti Essence concept revealed at the Geneva Motor Show this year, the new third-generation Infiniti M carries a flowing profile with a sharp, sculptured character line running along its side.
Infiniti has announced that the rear-wheel-drive sedan will be sold with both V8 and V6 engine options.
The Infiniti M56 will be powered by a 5.6 litreV8 developing over 298kW, and the M37 will draw power from a 245kW 3.7 litre V6.
New driver-assisting technologies are expected to feature in the 2011 Infiniti M range, including a system developed to alert the driver if another vehicle is in the car's blind spot during a lane change.
Infiniti is expected to release more details about the new M sedan this weekend.
The global financial crisis has delayed Nissan Australia?s efforts to bring the upmarket brand back to this country, but Nissan spokesman Jeff Fisher told TMR that an Infiniti revival remains on the company?s long-term agenda.
?At some time in the future we will launch the Infiniti brand in Australia and, at that time, offer a comprehensive Infiniti product range,? Mr Fisher said.
