700 Horsepower Infiniti GT-R Sedan on the Horizon?

Motor Trend Magazine says that Infiniti is developing a possible 700 horsepower Infiniti Sedan with underpinnings that sound like they could be a future GT-R. Two probable engines, a 3.0 liter turbo with 550 horsepower, and a 3.7 liter twin turbo with 700 horsepower. Direct injection on both engines. Check out the 800 horsepower Nissan GT-R Hybrid talk.

This flagship’s powerplants will be a newly developed 3.0-liter V-6 direct-injection turbo hybrid generating around 550 hp, and a new 3.7-liter V-6 twin-turbo hybrid with combined output of 700 hp. The GT-R is a superb unit but has its limitations. “The GT-R’s V-6 is hand-built and so cannot be built in large numbers. That’s why Nissan bosses wanted to create a more accessible, easy-to-build engine, that can be assembled in larger numbers and with lower emissions and better fuel economy than the GT-R.”

Both versions are expected to employ the newly modified ATTESA 4WD system made so famous on the GT-R. As part of their collaboration, Mercedes will also get access to Nissan’s ATTESA 4WD. The Nissan 550-hp 3.0-liter V-6’s specs translate into a luxury Infiniti sedan that rivals the Porsche Panamera S’ output in ‘base’ specification. A 700-hp flagship 3.7-liter would be the most powerful in its class. The car is slated to debut sometime in 2017 or 2018 for a price starting at about $100,000 for the 3.0-liter and $150,000 plus for the 3.7-liter.
