Get Your German On

With its historic German population, Columbus is well-known throughout the country for throwing one of the biggest Oktoberfest celebrations in the U.S. The epicenter of this year’s enormous Oktoberfest merriment will be the massive Ohio Expo Center and Ohio State Fairgrounds, which will be transformed into a rollicking and fun-filled German village. With more than 100,000 square feet of covered space at the Ohio Expo Center, even a shower or two won’t dampen anyone’s spirits.

Introducing The Stunning 2017 INFINITI Q60 Sports Coupe

Built to surpass the best of German and European brands, the all-new 2017 INFINITI Q60 Sports Coupe is ready to burst onto the automotive scene with a daring new design, impressive handling, sumptuous sports interior, and astonishing power.

A Daring New Look

Wearing seductive and sleek new sheetmetal, the Q60 Coupe from INFINITI defines beauty in motion. The Q60’s signature, chrome-accented INFINITI Grille is bracketed by slender LED headlights inspired by the human eye. The Q60’s muscular stance is low and wide, and it’s gracefully arcing roofline flows seamlessly into the rear deck lid and integrated rear spoiler.

The Q60’s smooth lines, expressive curves, and unique Active Grille Shutters combine for an exceptionally aerodynamic “Zero Lift” silhouette. A low coefficient of drag (Cd) in the neighborhood of .28 Cd means that the new Q60 Coupe slices through the air for improved handling and fuel efficiency.

You can also drive “al fresco” in the Q60’s fun-loving and freewheeling convertible variant.

Meticulously Crafted Sports Interior

No less breathtaking than the Q60’s elegantly streamlined exterior is its equally breathtaking interior. Crafted from the finest materials, the Q60 is remarkably spacious, indulgently luxurious, and its whisper-quiet cabin is a brilliant fusion of artistry and technology. The race-inspired Q60 revolves around the driver with the ergonomic placement of instrumentation and controls for an effortless driving experience.

Unique 3D sports seats feature a high back with integrated headrest and are bolstered in all the right places to give you the support needed for the most exhilarating maneuvers. Another example of Infiniti innovation is the Q60’s flexible stop doors. If you’ve ever been annoyed by other doors clumsily not staying open, these doors remain open without springing back at you.

And if music is one of the finer things in life you enjoy, then you’ll appreciate the available Bose® Performance Series audio system that makes its debut with an enriching sonic experience that must be heard to be believed.

The Ultimate In Performance & Handling

It’s hard to believe that any two-door sports coupe could handle and perform as amazingly as the Q60. The pulsating heart of the Q60 is an exquisitely engineered 3.0-liter Twin-Turbo V6 engine that produces a head-snapping 400 horsepower and prodigious 350 lb.-ft. of torque. The result is near instantaneous acceleration through a 7-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, achieving the perfect balance between drivability, performance, and efficiency. Even with all that brute force at your disposal, the turbo V6 gets an outstanding, EPA-estimated 27 mpg*.

Designed to handle like the genuine world-class sports car that it is, the all-new 2017 Q60 Sports Coupe merges cutting-edge technology with a sports-tuned chassis for unparalleled handling and lightning-quick responsiveness. Innovations such as Dynamic Digital Suspension, Active Trace Control, and industry-first Direct Adaptive Steering subtly adjust to changing road conditions and driver input for a remarkably stable, agile, and confidence-inspiring ride.

Additionally, you can control the Q60’s impressive handling characteristics with six distinct driving modes ranging from Standard and Sport to Eco. Plus, an exclusive Personal Mode gives you the freedom to choose your own custom settings to make the Q60 uniquely yours. An available all-wheel-drive system accentuates these already astonishing handling capabilities for rock-solid control in a variety of road conditions.
