Building alliances between automakers is something that has been done fairly often recently thanks to the downward spiral that was our economic state. The auto industry took a big hit and is just now starting to rebuild itself with teams coming together to reduce cost and create more powerful and more efficient vehicles. The recent Nissan-Daimler alliance is an example of this as rumors are suggesting that it will provide Infiniti with some power-boosting help.
Infiniti has already launched the IPL line, but apparently this is just the beginning. The IPL G Coupe’s 248hp will be chump change when compared with the IPL version of the Infiniti M, set to be launched in 2012. This vehicle will be carrying a Mercedes AMG sourced 6.2 liter V8 engine that will allow it to compete against models like the Mercedes E63 AMG and the Jaguar XF-R.
Along with the AMG engine, Nissan will also be replacing the current 3.7 liter engine with Mercedes’ forthcoming turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine in future G models.
