Rossion Q1 supercar pays a visit to Ferrari

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

The American-built Rossion Q1 supercar was in Italy, the country of Ferrari, for a promotional video shoot that is intended to display the vehicle's abilities. It was also announced that Hybrid UKGARAGE of Bergamo will take charge of European distribution.

The supercar, which is based on the Noble M400 model, was assembled by 1g Racing and Rossion Automotive. In 2007, Rossion Automotive acquired production rights from Noble Automotive.

The Q1 is powered by a 450hp 3.5-liter biturbo V6 engine, which enables the car to go from zero to 60mph in 3.1 seconds, reaching 100mph in 7.7 seconds.

A mid-mounted Ford engine produces up to 390 ft-lb of torque, and gets the car to the quarter-mile marker in 11.3 seconds at 123mph. Top speed is recorded to be 189mph.

The engine is mated to a Getrag six-speed manual transmission. The Q1 also uses a Quaife limited-slip rear differential. There are vast differences between the Q1 and the M400. Exterior styling on the two cars is quite different.

The Q1 does not have the gigantic rear spoiler and its interior is clearly more refined. Overall, the Rossion Q1 is somewhat less splashy than its predecessor, which actually makes it more appealing to most people
