Lexus RC350 vs Infiniti Q60

Time for the two V6 japanese coupes to battle it out once and for all.

It'll be good to see how the new Q60 will compare to the RC350.

Any idea what weight is like on both?
The RC seems like it's a pig due to it's size.
i heard somewhere the Q60 will be redesigned, does anyone know how true this is?

I didn't expect the Q60 to out power the RC350. I guess you have to consider that you can always go with the RC Sport or the RC and those will be more powerful.

That 6MT is where it gets points for being a car that enthusiasts love, but it's likely the next gen model could not get a manual at all, like many new cars that once had a manual in their previous generations

yea well before we go spouting our loads about thr Q60 having a 6MT, do consider that Infiniti only offers the 6MT on the Q60S which is a $5K premium over base, that foolish IMO.

I havent seen weight floating around for the RC, but I do know the Q60 is a big of a pig.

3,633 lbs for Q60 Journey, 3,834 lbs for Q60 AWD and 3,708 lbs for Q60S with the MT. Which is odd considering the Q50 3.7L Base tips it at 3,574 lbs, with the Q50 AWD weighing in at 3,849 lbs. Even the G37 Sedan tips it at a svelte 3,628 lbs. I've just never heard of a sedan weighing LESS than its coupe counterpart...
