2008 Infiniti G37 Coupe

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Or at the very least, don't screw it up.
That's the mantra that must've been hanging in banner form at Infiniti's
design headquarters when the time came to redo its popular G series luxury
sport coupe. The outgoing model looked great and was a joy to drive, a sort
of middle ground that could be viewed as either a more civilized Nissan
350Z or a more hooliganized G35 sedan.
Thankfully, the new 2008 Infiniti G37 follows the same formula. It looks
great (albeit in a more voluptuous sort of way than the original), is even
more of a hoot to drive and more deftly serves as either a sports car or
luxury car, depending on its driver's mood. Oh, and lest we forget to
mention, it now sports a larger, 330-hp engine. In other words, Infiniti
definitely didn't screw it up.
Despite the change in name, the G37 is still very much the coupe version of
the latest G35 sedan. The higher number indicates its larger 3.7-liter
engine and certainly hints at its more sporting intent. Along with adding
the new engine, Infiniti brought the G37 up to date via a new body
structure; the company says it's 36 percent stiffer than the previous
generation's. The added stiffness combines with a slightly lower overall
height, wider front and rear track widths, and revised suspension
components for improved handling. This is especially true of models fitted
with the available Sport Package.
Inside, the G37 benefits from the same transformation the G35 underwent
last year. Materials are simply excellent, highlighted by such items as the
car's new leather-accented magnesium transmission paddle shifters and the
"Japanese Washi-paper finish" aluminum trim that provides a refreshingly
unique take on cabin decoration. Additionally, a full array of standard and
optional high-tech features will appeal to more technologically inclined
There aren't many entry-level luxury coupes on the market, but the
available few are impressive. The new Audi A5 is worthy of cross-shopping
with the G37, though it starts at a higher base price. The BMW 335i is a
superior car, but it's more expensive than the G37 as well. The Infiniti's
principal competition, therefore, is the BMW 328i, which is more involving
to drive and a few steps ahead in interior materials quality, yet
considerably less muscular under the hood than the broad-shouldered G. If
you can live without the Bimmer's unmatched combination of sporty handling
and a comfortable ride, then the 2008 Infiniti G37 should make an excellent
addition to your garage -- as either a luxury coupe or a sports car.
Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options
The 2008 Infiniti G37 is essentially the coupe version of the G35 sedan.
It's differentiated by unique styling, more power and two fewer doors.
There are three trim levels available: base, Journey and Sport 6MT. The
base model comes standard with 18-inch wheels, bi-xenon headlights, keyless
ignition, leather upholstery, eight-way driver and four-way passenger power
seats, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, automatic climate control, a
folding rear seat and a CD/MP3 player with satellite radio and an auxiliary
audio jack. The Journey trim adds an eight-way power passenger seat,
dual-zone automatic climate control and an in-dash six-CD changer.
The Sport 6MT trim refers to this coupe's six-speed manual transmission,
and additional equipment includes a limited-slip rear differential, 19-inch
wheels, high-performance tires, sport suspension and brakes, and
sport-styled front seats with manual thigh extensions and driver's
power-adjustable torso and thigh bolsters. Save for the manual
transmission, these features are part of the Sport Package available on

Infiniti Celebrates 20 Years With G37 Coupe Art Car
Last night Infiniti took the covers off a G37 Coupe that was involved in
the brands Anniversary Art Project Vehicle program at an art event in
Toronto, Canada. To commemorate Infiniti's 20th anniversary, Infiniti
Canada with international circus group Cirque du Soleil to create a
one-of-a-kind G37 Coupe. Montreal artist Heidi Taillefer created the design
and spent almost one month hand-painting the exterior of the vehicle.
Infiniti's partner and inspiration for the G37 Coupe Anniversary design
concept, Cirque du Soleil, is also celebrating its 25th anniversary this
year and was also present at the unveiling.
Heidi Taillefer was one of several artists asked to submit a design concept
for the exterior of the Infiniti G37 Coupe. No structural changes could be
made so the car could remain safe and driveable, and able to be eventually
sold. Heidi's inspired design "Ligozzi" was ultimately selected and she
spent much of August and early September painting the vehicle.
The Anniversary Vehicle will be on tour at various Cirque du Soleil shows
and other events over the coming months. The car will eventually be
auctioned off for charity.
