Infiniti Press Release

2009 Infiniti G ConvertibleInfiniti today unveiled the latest expression of its "Inspired Performance," the all-new 2009 Infiniti G Convertible, at the 2008 Los Angeles Auto Show. The first-ever Infiniti G Convertible builds upon the performance legacy of the Infiniti G line, with the liberation only a convertible with the top down can provide. It is scheduled to go on sale at Infiniti dealers in North America in the spring of 2009, followed later in other Infiniti markets around the world.

"Designed to rejuvenate the spirit, the G Convertible adds an open-air soundtrack to the G's legendary driving exhilaration," said Brian Carolin, senior vice president, Sales and Marketing, speaking before automotive media at the vehicle's world debut. "This new G has dual beauty – it looks as good with the top up or down – along with a beautiful, leather-appointed interior that is meant to be experienced wide-open."

The new G Convertible offers a three-piece folding steel top and a special convertible-focused interior, which features a unique Bose Open Air Sound System that dynamically changes equalisation based on outside noise, vehicle speed, and top position, and an adaptive climate control system that adjusts fan speed in accordance to top position and vehicle speed.

2009 Infiniti G ConvertibleEvery 2009 G Convertible comes equipped with an advanced 3.7-litre V6 rated at 325 horsepower. The engine is backed by a choice of an electronically controlled 7-speed automatic transmission with available magnesium paddle shifters or a responsive close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission.

Technology features include standard RearView Monitor and an available touch-screen Infiniti Navigation system with XM NavTraffic Real-Time Traffic information with 9.3GB Music Box Hard Drive, Pre-Crash Seat Belts, Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) with Preview Braking and Adaptive Front lighting System (AFS).

The G Convertible is offered in two models: the G37 Convertible and the G37S Convertible Sport 6MT, which adds sport-tuned steering and larger sport brakes, along with 19-inch aluminium-alloy wheels and W-rated performance tyres.

Also available is a special, limited production G Convertible Premier Edition, offered exclusively through the Bloomingdale's Holiday Catalog. With only 200 being built, the Premier Edition features a custom Monaco Red Leather leather-appointed interior, handcrafted red-tone Maple Wood trim, Midnight Black front grille and 9-spoke 19-inch aluminium-alloy wheels and tyres. Pre-orders for the Premier Edition are being taken now for delivery in 2009.

The Infiniti display at the Los Angeles Auto Show also showcases the complete line of 2009 Infiniti vehicles, including the all-new Infiniti G37x Coupe with intelligent all-wheel drive, the new G37 Sedan with a 328-horsepower 3.7-litre V6 and a new, more powerful M35 rear-wheel drive sedan.
