I checked the Infiniti site and it doesn't mention Drive by wire throttle.

Can anyone confirm that this car has this?

I'd be totally and completely amazed if it didn't. Virtually all modern upmarket cars have abandoned the old mechanical throttle linkage. Nissan has done it on "lesser" cars in their stable, so I'm sure the M is drive-by-wire.

And I am reasonably certain that the "rev match on downshift" feature could not be implemented without DBW.

The Q45 had it since 2002.

This is a neat description from Infiniti.

Pretty much any new engine in such a hi profile automobile has dive by wire.

Sorta like fuel injection. No one advertises that any more, because every engine has it. Even diesels (TDI turbo diesel injection).
