European Infiniti shoppers have the option of ordering certain models with the firm’s new six-cylinder diesel engine and the FX luxury crossover is one of them. For those buyers that would like a light tune up of their diesel-powered FX30d there is AHG Sport, the in-house performance division of the Infiniti Centre in Hamburg, Germany.
When it leaves the factory, the FX30d’s 3.0-liter V6 oil-burner cranks out 238-horsepower and 550Nm (406 lb ft) of pulling power available at 1750rpm. Even though AHG Sports doesn’t provide specific details on the engine tune, the company says output is lifted to 280-horses and 600 Nm (443 lb-ft) of peak torque. This upgrade is priced at €1,250 or about US$1,790.
The fine-tuning continues with a lowered sports suspension priced at €1,495 (US$2,130) and a new set of three-piece, 21-inch alloy wheels from Schmidt Revolution shod in performance tires size 295/40 R21 on all four corners (€7,900 or US$11,270).
