Sure, this Infiniti Q45t has only had two previous owners and shows just 10,300 miles, but what makes it really rad is that it was previously used as a show car for the tuning brand Stillen.

Modifications from Stillen include the bright orange paint, Stillen body kit plus rear wing, 17-inch Momo wheels, as well as an aftermarket exhaust and front brakes.

Stock, the Q45t’s V8 is rated at 266 horsepower and 278 lb.-ft. of torque, but, as the seller notes, “this example may be producing higher figures, however a dyno sheet has not been provided for verification.”

Find this 1997 Infiniti Q45t up for auction from Cars & Bids.

How much power do you think it makes now? (That orange paint has to add a horse or two, right?)

I know where a manual trans swap is currently located. Wonder if it'll make it all the way to Orlando.

I loved my 1993(?) Infinity Q45 as it has been possibly the most reliable of any vehicle I have owned.  Good power, good comfort, and effortless cruising at high speeds on the interstate.  The orange paint is NOT a bonus for this luxury car, but more than that: the wheels; they need to go to Craigslist.

In reply to DavyZ : Both the paint and the wheels (especially the wheels) are easy fixes, could make a great sleeper.

As of a few minutes ago, the bids are up to a whopping $3500, think this could be a bargain.

I only paid $1000 for my last Stillen Q45. I will not buy another Q45...

Have you ever read a GRM thread title and thought they might be speaking directly to you?  Now I have.  

 

But, for now, three Q45s in my past may be enough.  

 

Besides, this is the Q41.  Gen1 was 4.5L and hence the name.  For the Gen2 Nissan stopped send the JDM model President derived car and sent the less expensive Cedric .  

I will say that I think the Gen2 might be the most attractive of the group.  Not amazingly attractive or stunning but more so just well dimensioned and tasteful without being gaudy.  That then is a stark contrast to the orange paint.

I bought 3 that ran and all less than $2k.

Every day, just about anywhere you can find a runner for under $3k.  

This car will sell for over-market money but I'll bet it doesn't break over the $7k's

I like some orange cars but this one with a cream interior just isn't working for DatsunGuy.

Yeah the orange is really pretty terrible on this. And I like orange cars. Makes it look like a cab or maybe a DOT vehicle.
