People might have never heard of the Rossion Q1 but we can give you a hint – it was better known under its previous name, the Noble M400 from the United Kingdom.
While it was originally a British product, the platform was bought over in 2007 by Florida-based Rossion and the result is the mid-engine pocket rocket in the images. The example we see here has been found on eBay and costs a cool $79,950. Clearly not a bargain, this 80k supercar comes with 450 horsepower (335 kilowatts) and 390 pound-feet (528 Newton-meters) of torque via the Ford 3.0-liter biturbo Duratec engine. It tips the scales at just 2,299 pounds (1,043 kg), thus sprinting to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in just 2.8 seconds, with its breath out only at 195 mph (314 km/h).
The unit on sale is in good condition, having clocked just 6,200 miles (9,977 kilometers) since new – no time to wear out the six-speed Getrag manual transmission or the rear-wheel drive. AP Racing Brakes, a set of Goodyear Eagle F-1 tires and a scarce but well equipped interior are also available. There’s two-tone leather and Alcantara finish, as well as carbon fiber seats and dash. Air conditioning, power windows, and keyless entry were standard, and the example added Bluetooth, a backup camera, and even a navigation system.
