Have you ever come across something on eBay or CraigsList that made you go “Woha! What is that and what is it doing on sale?” Well, someone inside egmCarTech (who browses CraigsList like it’s nobody’s business) came across a 2009 Rossion Q1 on sale in good old South Amboy, New Jersey.
If you don’t remember the 2009 Rossion Q1, you might need a short history lesson – and that’s what we’re here for. Back in early 2007, Noble Automotive was selling the rights to the M12 and M400 production outside of the UK to raise capital for the development of the M15. Noble ended up giving 1G Racing, it’s U.S. distributor, the rights to the M12 and M400 production and as a part of the agreement, 1G Racing had to rename and rebadge the car. The result? Rossion Q1.
Based on the Noble M400, the Rossion Q1 makes 450-hp with a torque of 390 lb-ft and has a power to weight ratio of 418 bhp/ton. It jets from 0 to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds, 0 to 100 mph in 7.7 seconds and has a top speed of an eye-watering 189 mph. Oh, and if you want to impress your muscle car friends at the drag strip, the Rossion Q1 does the quarter mile in 11.3 seconds at 123 mph.
This 2009 Rossion Q1 is still available for sale in NJ and has 6,122 miles on it. Asking price? $63,999.
