Noble’s Latest Spin – The Rossion Q1

Written by mdvaldosta on July 19, 2007

Rossion LogoEarlier this year Noble announced they’ve sold M12 and M400 production outside of the UK to raise some capital for development of the M15. In the United States, 1G Racing of Cincinnati, Ohio purchased rights to rename and rebadge the car as their own – naming the new car the “Rossion Q1” while refinining the raw feel of the previous Noble version.

“We are extremely proud to launch the Rossion brand with the introduction of the new Q1,” says Rossion Automotive Vice President Dean Rosen. “The Q1 is about achieving the very highest possible levels of performance and blending them with luxurious touches traditionally absent from cars of this caliber.” The Rossion Q1 is for the enthusiast looking for a refined road car that pushes the limits of performance in every way.”

Coming in at a scant 2500 lbs and pusing a mind-boggling (pound for pound) 450 horsepower – the Q1 will smoke the 0-60 clock in just 3.2 seconds, drag down the quarter in 11.4 seconds, and continue on peg the speedo at 185 mph.

The driver sits in a more comfortable interior that now includes stuff like satellite navigation, power mirrors, hand-stitched sumptuous interiors, and a high end sound system. Prices are quite low for an entry level supercar too, starting at a base around $69,000 for a rolling chassis, or about $90,700 with the complete (aforementioned) drivetrain installed. Vrooom!

This car is a beast on Forza 3. Saw the M400 a few years ago when it was displayed at Mid Ohio Sports Car Course….glad to be able to “drive” the Q1 on Forza, since I probably never will in real life.
