The 2018 Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 is an absolute beauty in person. And that's important, because, more than any other segment in the automotive marketplace, a personal luxury coupe has got to have the kind of attention-grabbing looks that can lead off the discussion about a brand-new vehicle. Like this one.
It's also important because the name Red Sport 400 conjures up a kind of performance imagery that the Q60's hardware doesn't quite live up to. But before we delve into the world of horsepower and torque, let's finish talking about style. Like most luxury marques these days, Infiniti is working really hard to put a variant of its instantly recognizable corporate face on everything it sells. Unlike some other automakers — *cough* Lexus *cough* — Infiniti has been mostly successful in the styling-led marketing push without making each new car a caricature of the model it replaced.
Infiniti Australia has issued a recall notice for 104 examples of its Q50 sedans and Q60 coupes, over an issue with the malfunction indicator light.
According to the company, cars fitted with the VR30DDTT V6 engine haven’t been programmed to indicate failure of the automatic transmission. The problem is caused by a mismatch between the new Electronic Control Module and the old Controlled Area Network, both of which are part of the on-board diagnosis communication architecture.
