When it comes to large luxury sedans, it's pretty hard not to think of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7-Series and Audi A8. But there's a whole slew of other participants.

THINK: The Lexus LS, the Cadillac XTS, Acura RLX, Jaguar XJ and, lastly, the Infiniti Q70.

Pebble Beach Concours Weekend

So, how has Nissan's luxury division decided to differentiate itself? Well, it brought along the Q70L last year. This is a long wheelbase Q70 and after recently getting behind the wheel I have to admit it's pretty impressive given its aggressive pricing.

But don't spike the football just yet. Infiniti has decided to keep upping the ante by introducing the world to the new Q70 Premium Select Edition at this weekend's Pebble Beach event.

What makes this Premium Select Edition so special? Let me explain. If I am honest, there's not much but it does receive new exterior trim bits and wheels. On the inside it receives semi-aniline leather seats, special aluminum trim, illuminated door sills and floor mats featuring contrasting piping. The company's press release says it gets a "suede-like" but I have no idea what that means. Is it Alcantara or is it something else?

Anyway, you can order yours from your local Infiniti dealer come November.
