Imagine driving a very cool new car for a distance between 9 to 25 miles, getting out and then into another very cool car for another 9 to 25 mile leg and then repeating the same routine through 23 cars in a two day period.
Welcome to the 2010 NWAPA (Northwest Automotive Press Association) Run to the Sun held recently in western Washington. After 23 cars and more than 450 miles of smiles, here are our quick impressions of the Infiniti M37x.
All new for 2011, the Infiniti M is one of the most overlooked cars in its class, but it is one of the best. With its beautiful sculpted body, posh interior and precision drivetrain, the M37 is a great driver’s car. The M37 gets power from a 330-hp, 3.7-liter V-6 and the M56 has a 420-hp, 5.6-liter V-8. Both are fast with the V-6 hitting 60 mph in 5.6 seconds and the V-8 at 4.7 seconds. The transmission in both is a quick-shifting new seven-speed automatic that does rev matching on down shifts. Both models are available in rear- or all-wheel drive. Pricing ranges from $47,115 for the rear drive to $60,915 for the M56 AWD.
