NASHVILLE, TN – The L.A. auto show hosted the debut of the G37 convertible, according to www.caranddriver.com. From the A-pillar back, the G37 convertible features unique body panels, including a three-piece retractable hardtop that sandwiches under a flush tonneau cover. Inside, besides the extra sunshine, occupants will enjoy new convertible-exclusive “silk-finish” aluminum trim, as well as optional multi-adjustable sport seats and a Bose Open Air audio system with 13 speakers — including a couple in each headrest.
As with the coupe, a Sport package is available, standard on cars with a manual transmission and optional with the automatic. It includes 19-inch rolling stock, enhanced brakes, and sport-tuned steering. Magnesium shift paddles are also included on automatic cars.
From the A-pillar forward, everything from the G37 coupe stays put, including the stellar high-output 3.7L V-6 that produces 327 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque, mated to either a six-speed manual or a new rev-matching seven-speed automatic. Grip levels are expected to stay high thanks to reinforcements added throughout the structure, as well as a wider rear track than the coupe.
