Infiniti FX50, faster than a speeding…Mustang GT? Wow.

It may seem like I’m constantly pimping Infiniti on my site. I’m not. Sure, I do have my eyes set on a G37, after all, you ARE RIDING with G, right? 🙂 In any case, I spent some time reading about the latest and greatest FX50 and this snip-it from C&C about the new 2009 FX really caught my eye:

“We saw 60 mph flash past in 5.0 seconds in our FX50S, with the quarter-mile dispatched in 13.6 seconds at 104 mph. That’s quicker than a Mustang GT through the quarter-mile, and within 0.1 second of our quickest BMW 335i.”

One word: WOW. That’s freakishly insane fast, for a SUV. Its like having a sports car with massive cargo space. Word to the fellas out there, this is YOUR ride, specially if you got kids. Now if this thing will run on sea water, then we’ll be all set.
