Infiniti G35S Driver Seat -- No Place I'd Rather Be
July 02, 2007
Once again, the skies parted, the Gods smiled down on me and Mike handed me the keys to the Infiniti G35 Sport Sedan, again affording me one of my favorite views in the world.
I realized why I love it so much. It comes right down to what makes a driver's car a driver's car. It makes you feel like you are a terrific driver, it makes you WANT to drive, it challenges you to go faster because everything about it, from power to steering to brakes, fills you with confidence and the buckets hold you in tight, letting you know that the car is with you in whatever decision you make.
Yesterday I went to a party in the valley off Coldwater Canyon. Instead of boring freeways, I made it a point to take the long way, tearing through the turns on Sunset and then up and over Coldwater. On the way home, I made it a point to route the trip via Mulholland to Beverly Glen, two other fantastic roads full of hairpin turns and long, sweeping Esses. This car inspires such confidence, it makes you want to power through the turns because the rear slides through them so confidently, with plenty of power no matter what gear. And that engine note? Che bella!
I think Infiniti should make a special nav function that highlights twisty roads, so you can actually plan your route based on the roads with the most turns and challenges. Because the G35 Sport will assure you that together, you can handle them.
