That's a serious specific output number, and for the flagship sedan, not the GT-R or other specialty vehicle.

Could make for some really tasty engine swaps in a few years. Modded 350Z anyone?

Edit:
False alarm, Motor Trend puts it at 530 Hp 3.7l V6. Much closer to the current GT-R engine, built in the same plant.

The former G series is not the flagship sedan; in the press release about the naming convention change it was stated that a forced induction V6 would be offered in a new model...so the specific output/L is not THAT big of a deal.
