2008 Infiniti G37 Sport Review Jacksonville NC

The Infiniti G37 sport coupe unapologetically blazes its own trail in Jacksonville. Its flexed bicep styling looks like nothing else in its class, the handling is excellent, there's power everywhere you look, and it's supremely satisfying to drive. Comparisons to BMW's 3 Series coupe are inevitable, and the G37 more than just holds its own, it throws down, kicking sand in the BMW's face and challenging it for the luxury sport coupe crown.

Introduction

Infiniti G37 Sport - 2008 Review: The Infiniti G37 sport coupe unapologetically blazes its own trail. Its flexed bicep styling looks like nothing else in its class, the handling is excellent, there's power everywhere you look, and it's supremely satisfying to drive. Comparisons to BMW's 3 Series coupe are inevitable, and the G37 more than just holds its own, it throws down, kicking sand in the BMW's face and challenging it for the luxury sport coupe crown. Whether the Infiniti bests the BMW boils down to extremely fine points, but it's far and away one of the strongest contenders against the 3 Series in a long, long time.

What We Drove
The basic Infiniti G37 Sport will set you back $36,265 with the $715 destination charge included. The Sport is the only way to get the manual transmission option, and it comes with a beefed up suspension and more aggressive tires as well. Options included the $3,200 Premium Package, which added a sunroof, Bose audio system, heated front seats, iPod interface, power seats, lumbar, tilt/telescope steering wheel and a handful of other goodies. It also had the $2,200 navigation system and the completely transparent $1,300 rear active steer package. The $550 rear spoiler topped things off, driving the total price to $43,515.

Performance
The Infiniti G37's 3.7-liter V-6 and six-speed manual transmission are just short of perfect. The 330 horsepower flows like water through a spillway, and the 270 lb.-ft. of torque peaks at 5,200, but there's plenty down low, too. The transmission's perfect ratios and short throws are marred only by an abruptly engaging clutch. The only other thing that keeps us from falling head over heels for this drivetrain is the harsh thrum from the engine at high revs. It's not a deal killer, but it's especially annoying in light of the powertrain's overall performance.
