Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge powered by Nissan GT-R engine

The Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge concept is confirmed to be powered by a slightly different version of the Nissan GT-R engine.

If that sounds a bit familiar (apart from the transmission), it’s because its the same as the Nissan GT-R’s 3.8-litre engine.
