Less than a couple of months ago, when we tested the new Q50S Red Sport 400 saloon, we were mighty impressed by its engine. Now, Arabian Automobiles Company, the exclusive dealer for the Japanese luxury brand in Dubai, Sharjah and the northern emirates, has launched the all-new Q60 Red Sport 400 Coupé, powered by the same six-cylinder mill.
The Red Sport 400, which is the flagship variant, will be available with the 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged V6 good for 400 horsepower at 6,400rpm and 475Nm of torque at 1,750rpm, while the Q60 Coupé will also be sold here powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes 208 horsepower. Irrespective of the powertrain option chosen, buyers will get access to a range of hi-tech features such as Intelligent Cruise Control, Direct Adaptive Steering that constantly fine-tunes steering performance with up to a claimed 1,000 adjustments per second and an electronically controlled Dynamic Digital Suspension. The model also comes equipped with a suite of driver assistance and safety technologies, such as Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection and Adaptive Lighting.
“The introduction of the Q60 Red Sport 400 Coupé represents an important step in Arabian Automobiles Company’s pursuit of innovation and style,” says Salah Yamout, director of sales and marketing at Arabian Automobiles Company. “We plan to grow market share and lead the industry, while also fulfilling our commitment to providing our customers with an outstanding range of all-new performance oriented models. The Q60 Red Sport 400 Coupé is a marvel, and we are confident that its captivating design and remarkable power will leave our customers as excited as we are about this new addition to our range,” he adds.
We'll get our hands on one soon, so look out for a first drive review in one of the coming issues of the mag.
