Alright, that's not entirely true. There's a veritable treasure trove of great cars exclusive to the Japanese and US markets that we don't get, and I suppose some of them could be better than the G37. But let's just roll with it. Infiniti?Nissan's luxury arm in the US and once in Australia as well?have announced that as of late 2008, the Infiniti G37 will be available in all-wheel-drive spec. While it'd be easy to draw comparisons to the GT-R, I'd think of it more as an AWD up-market version of the 350Z.
Noticeably absent from the AWD G37?titled the G37x?is a manual transmission option. That fact, for most people, should be enough to see this car remain the province of midlife crisisers and out of the tuning circles. At least until peeps start transplanting the running gear from previous GT-Rs (or the brand new one, should you have the moolah). Nissan Australia, is there something about being in the Aussie market that you don't like? Sort your hat out and give us the G37. Infiniti G37x Specifications, and photos of the existing G37, after the jump.
