2009 Infiniti G37S convertible with Shiro Nakamura

Shiro Nakamura is the Chief Designer for Nissan and Infiniti. We were standing on the 18th green at the 2009 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance looking at the full-line of Infinitis. I asked Nakamura, of all these cars which was his favorite to design. Immediately, he said the Infiniti G37S Convertible.

This is only the second hard-top convertible that Shiro Nakamura has designed. The first was the Micra. The first-ever G Convertible features a three-piece power retractable hardtop.

The new G Convertible comes equipped with a standard 325-horsepower 3.7-liter V6, backed by a choice of a 7-speed automatic transmission with available magnesium paddle shifters or a close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission.

The Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) is $43,850 for the G37 Convertible and $43,900 for the G37 Convertible Sport 6MT.
