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...

Not sure who will agree with me but the cureent Q60 coupe ipl or not looks dated. The RC-F has nicer curves. I really like the chrome trimming around the window frame. The onlything that is not sticking to me is the rear vent on the bumper with the fins. Do they actually serve a purpose?

It's an outgoing model that's in it's last year of production so it's expected it will look like that.
