There is no slow FX in the line-up, with huge petrol and diesel engines
being the order of the day. Both petrol models boast 0-62mph times under 7
seconds, with the quickest even dipping under the six second barrier. A
stiff set-up means it corners well too but it's worth taking a test drive
to see if the ride is soft enough to live with on a daily basis.

2013 Infiniti FX50 Test Drive & Luxury Crossover Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/infiniti/fx50/2013/?id=32972 The 2013 Infiniti
FX50 is the top of the line when it comes to luxury crossovers from Japan.
The FX50 and FX37 have been around for a number of years and these 2
vehicles are differentiated by their engines. The FX50 has a 5.0 liter V-8
engine making 390 horsepower while the FX37 is
powered by a 3.7 liter V-6 making 325 horsepower. The 2013
Infiniti FX50 has a base price of $61,400.
Another big element to these sporty luxury crossovers is the styling. The
Infiniti FX has always had a love it or leave it presence due to its
aggressive and bold exterior design. On the inside the FX50 has good
functionality and utility. The cargo room is adequate and the rear lift
gate is automatically controlled. The interior space in the rear may be a
bit small but this vehicle is a crossover and not a large SUV.
The interior features tons of luxury amenities. The seats are leather and
the trim is a lovely maple wood. The technology on the Infiniti is cutting
edge with tons of safety equipment like: around view monitor, distance
control technology, and intelligent brake assist to name a few. The sound
system is also a top notch BOSE unit. This is a high end luxury car and you
will get treated like royalty by your Infiniti dealer.
Driving the 2013 Infiniti FX50 is impressive. This luxury crossover can go
from 0-60 MPH in a little over 5 seconds which is amazing. The steering is
tight and the suspension firm which makes for a wonderfully agile vehicle.

2012 Infiniti FX Sebastian Vettel version
Just six months after the idea first surfaced, the Infiniti FX designed for
reigning Formula One World Champion Sebastian Vettel is unveiled at the
2011 Frankfurt International Motor Show. What began as a chat between the
Red Bull Racing driver and Infiniti's Chief Creative Officer, Shiro
Nakamura, at the 2011 Geneva Show in March is revealed, in concept form, as
Infiniti's fastest car yet and, probably, the most exclusive crossover ever
With its sophisticated technology, lightweight components and features such
as Rear Active Steering for maximum agility, the V8 FX50S Premium -
Infiniti's flagship as well as its best-selling model in some markets -
provides the ideal starting point for the Infiniti FX Sebastian Vettel
version. Changes including increased power, lower weight, derestricted top
speed, longer gearing, increased downforce and lowered and stiffer
suspension turn what is already a sports car among crossovers into a
crossover supercar - the 300km/h reality of the World Champion's vision.
Infiniti's Corporate Vice President Toru Saito said: "The FX Sebastian
Vettel version is unique and very much Sebastian's car. But at the same
time it is a concept car for Infiniti globally."
Sebastian Vettel, 2010 Formula One World Champion and Infiniti Global Brand
"I have been driving an FX all this year and it is a car I love. It fits my
lifestyle perfectly and is great fun to drive. But of course, it could go a
"I drive a lot in Germany on motorways that have no speed limits and have
enjoyed my FX around the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Driving at high speed
where safe and legal is part of my life. As well as a higher top speed I
wanted even better stability in my FX, and that meant work on the
aerodynamics. It is a tribute to the excellence of the standard FX that
achieving all my targets required so few changes.
"This is the first road car I have helped develop. Usually I have hundreds
of engineers building one car just for me. So it is fantastic for me to
contribute to the design of a car. The result is an Infiniti I am very
proud to have my name on. It is all I hoped for: 300km/h, plenty of
downforce - and I can still fit my mountain bike in the back. Plus it is
totally exclusive - and as an Infiniti driver, that's important."
Design and aerodynamics
As Sebastian says, the first priority for his ultimate FX was to give it
more performance. However, whether on the racetrack or the road, speed is
just one part of the mix that goes to make a world-beater. All the car's
systems, and in particular the aerodynamics, must be up to the task. In the
Infiniti FX Sebastian Vettel version they are.
The car's revised aerodynamics profile is the result of changes made by
Infiniti designers and engineers after meetings involving Sebastian and Red
Bull Racing personnel. A Red Bull Racing RB7 was even shipped to Japan to
provide real life inspiration for the team bringing the World Champion's
road car dream to life.
Riding 20mm lower than standard and featuring a more aerodynamic, as well
as more distinctive, Essence-inspired grille, the most obvious change is
the addition of a carbon rear wing. Tests show that it delivers everything
that its looks promise - and Sebastian sought - in terms of increased
downforce, and stability, at the 300km/h speeds of which the Infiniti FX
Sebastian Vettel version is capable.
As well as a 30 per cent improvement in the coefficient of lift (Cl), the
special FX boasts a 5 percent lower coefficient of drag (Cd). Boosting downforce while simultaneously
cutting drag is one of the concept's major claims to fame. Even the door
mirror housings have been shaped to increase downforce.
Carbon is used for the splitter, sills, front grille, mirror covers and
rear diffuser, trimming the weight of what is already one of the lighter
SUVs in its size class. Design of the splitter and diffuser is inspired by
the F1 car, as is the central rear fog light - just like an F1 car's rain
The wheels are 21-inch black multispoke alloys with silver rims, designed
exclusively for this car; they don't just look the part but also save
weight over the standard 21-inch FX50 wheel. At 2049kg, the Infiniti FX
Sebastian Vettel version weighs 46kg less than a standard FX50S Premium.
With an already potent 5.0 liter V8 under the bonnet, relatively little
needed to be done to enable the world's most special FX to hit Sebastian
Vettel's maximum speed target of 300km/h.
The first job was to free the car of its speed limiter which electronically
restricts all other FXs to 250 km/h. Even in standard form, with the VVEL
V8 producing 390PS at 6500 rpm, the car has plenty of performance beyond
its artificial top speed, but even so more power had to be found to deliver

With unusual looks and a hefty price tag, the FX50 from Nissan's luxury arm
Infiniti, seems to have everything the fashionable SUV driver desires. But
does it drive as well as long established rivals from Range Rover and
Porsche? For more videos, news and reviews go to

For 2011, Infiniti has upgraded their flagship SUV, the FX50 with a few
choice features. The wheelbase has been lengthened by 1.4 inches, but more
significantly, the engine is now an all-new 4.5-liter V8 engine that Boosts horsepower up by 70 from
last year's model bringing the grand total to 370. If you're looking for
smooth acceleration and accessible power behind the wheel of your sport
utility vehicle, the FX50 is tough automobile to beat.
The interior is beautiful and features many complementary amenities; there
is a 11-speaker Bose sound-system which includes XM satellite radio and a
navigation screen that offers real-time traffic info and voice-recognition
software. Couple this with one of the best safety-ratings in its class and
an intelligent Brake Assist system capable of automatically braking your
vehicle in emergencies, and you have standard a package that will fit any
need of your driving experience.
Starting at $56,950 and with an as tested price of $63,000, the Infiniti
FX50 doesn't come cheap. But once you step inside, take it for a drive and
become immersed in the luxury and performance, you'll know where every
penny of that pricetag went: into a remarkable driving experience that
exemplifies Infiniti's commitment to superior automobiles.
