About Infiniti FX50

FX50 was designed to retain the previous generation's "giant scarab" and "bionic cheetah" profile while adding new elements like shark-like sculpted headlights and a large, trapezoidal grille. The Infiniti FX50 had been powered by a 5.0 L VQ35HR V8 engine that could produce390 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque and this engine was fitted along with a 7-speed automatic transmission with manual mode.
