MotorTrend recently received some new details surrounding the highly-anticipated, BMW M3 competing Q50 Eau Rouge after speaking with Infiniti’s president Johan de Nysschen.
According to the report, the Q50 Eau Rouge will most likely be a low volume production model with a very brief two-year life cycle. This suggests that the price may be well above $100,000. Sounds a bit ridiculous for what is intended to be an M3 competitor. But hang on just a sec, as de Nysschen did say that the brand might subsidize each model to “keep it within reach.”
So far, engineers are still researching and developing the car and at this point, they’re improving the model’s transmission shift speeds and have yet to equip and tune a limited-slip differential at the rear for the prototype to set the parameters for the production model.
At least two models may be offered with the Q50 Eau Rouge, suggesting both a sedan and coupe version. Nonetheless, both will be powered by the same handcrafted twin-turbo 3.8L V6 found in the GT-R.
