Infiniti Q45 details:
The Infiniti Q45 was completely refactored for 2002, now based on the new platform shared by both the Cima and the President. This Infiniti Q45 focused on performance again with a new 340 hp (253 Kw) 4. 5 L VK45DE V8 motor, gatling gun inspired HID headlights, and sharper look-and-feel. The vehicle features a 5-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. Despite good reviews, sales remained poor — just 1129 were sold in the US for all of 2005.
