Infiniti’s new 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo engine is the most advanced V6 ever offered by the brand.
An electric motor improves valve timing by reducing any delay at the start of acceleration, making throttle response faster.
A unique turbo speed sensor allows 10 percent more power by allowing the turbine blade speeds to reach up to 220,000 rpms.
Precision-cut design helps achieve maximum performance by quickly compressing and circulating the air within the turbo chargers.
Water-cooled air becomes denser and more oxygen rich as it travels to the engine. That means less turbo lag and quicker acceleration.
