Infiniti Puts Local Fund-Raising Effort in Overdrive

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (December 3, 2006) – The California Highway Patrol 11-99 Foundation has received a generous donation to support its 2006 year-end fund-raising drive – a 2007 Infiniti G sports sedan valued at $39,200.
Infiniti originally donated the vehicle to the Boys and Girls Club of Monterey, which raffled it off at the Pebble Beach Concours d\'Elegance as a fund-raiser.

Bruce Meyer, a local car collector and automobile enthusiast, won the Infiniti G. Meyer decided to re-donate the vehicle to benefit the CHP 11-99 Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports families of fallen, current, and retired California Highway Patrol employees through death and emergency benefits and scholarships. Meyer is a past president of the CHP 11-99 Foundation.

“I’ve heard so many great things about the new Infiniti G that I figured if I actually got the vehicle in my garage I wouldn’t be able to give it up. So, I decided to donate it before I had the opportunity to fall in love with it,” said Meyer. “The CHP 11-99 Foundation provides such a great service for CHP employees and their families, I wanted to extend my good fortune by donating this car to help provide additional support to the men and women who put their lives on the line for us every day.”

Shiro Nakamura, senior vice president for Nissan and Infiniti vehicle design, was present to hand the keys over to the 11-99 Foundation. “I’m happy this vehicle is able to benefit so many people,” said Nakamura. “We’re always looking to help communities, but when a community member like Mr. Meyer reaches out and continues the generosity, it’s really quite amazing.”

About the all-new Infiniti G sports sedan
The second-generation G sports sedan goes “beyond machine” by offering consumers the total driving experience – performance coupled with a gorgeous exterior and an inviting, comfortable interior.

The heart of the new G sports sedan remains its advanced powertrain, anchored by the fourth generation award-winning VQ-series 3.5-liter DOHC V6, which now cranks out 306 horsepower and 268 lb-ft of torque.

The interior invokes “modern warmth” – a sophisticated, luxury finish with Japanese design cues and a warm, inviting feel. The new G’s interior is enhanced by the available Infiniti Studio on Wheels™ by Bose®, a sound system designed specifically for the G and comparable to a high-end home entertainment system.
