Infiniti may have only just arrived in Europe but the brand is wasting no time in announcing the next addition to its range of performance cars, the G37 Convertible, which will go on sale from summer 2009. The news coincides with the release of a second image of the car that shows how Infiniti's designers have preserved the sensuous lines of the G37 Coupé … despite the need to accommodate the Convertible's three-piece automatic retracting hardtop.

The G37 Convertible promises beautiful styling and the dynamic performance worthy of an Infiniti G.  It will be powered by the same 320PS 3.7-litre V6 engine, featuring Infiniti's Variable Valve Event and Lift technology, as its sister Sedan and Coupé models.  There will be a choice of standard six-speed manual transmission or optional seven-speed automatic with paddle shift.

More pictures and details of the G37 Convertible will be issued at the 2008 Los Angeles Auto Show in November during the car's global debut.
