Rossion Q1

The automotive world has taken notice. The intrigue is undeniable. A striking silhouette stands before you. But only when you own a Rossion Q1 will you understand the power you now possess. Experience the ultimate in civilized handling, dynamic design and superior engineering intelligence. Rossion defined philosophies are incorporated into the Q1.

Light weight and performance are adhered to. Every performance and design element is implemented to make the Rossion both comfortable and inviting, while further improving overall performance. The Rossion Q1 offers an exhilarating driving lesson by demonstrating how a lightweight, brilliantly engineered chassis carefully paired with an extraordinarily powerful engine can shatter all previous conceptions of sports car physics. Shift smoothly through six gears, in the city or at spine tingling speed. The Q1 will take you to unsurpassed heights in the super car arena. A place where Rossion has earned a name all its own, outperforming all others on the road and track. Though the Q1 is a track oriented supercar, the driving experience is not the harsh, flinty compromise experienced in heavier "track suitable" ultra performance cars. While the Q1 thrills at the track with a taut controlled ride that achieves dynamic perfection, it remains startling compliant on real roads, in daily use. The Q1 simply offers, without compromise, a supreme driving experience. The Rossion Q1 is the result of the lessons learned in extensive testing, sale, and support. It is a logical development of its predecessor. Every subtle performance change and design nuance was carefully implemented to make the car more comfortable and inviting, while further improving overall performance.

The most striking element of the Q1 is the beautifully proportioned shape giving the Rossion a sultry, aggressive look while further enhancing performance aspects. The composite body panel construction delivers superb surface finish and precise panel fit. World class design and CAD modeling have been employed in the creation of the Q1's body. The driving force behind the bodywork is air flow management. The result is a clean aerodynamic profile, efficient engine compartment airflow, and excellent aerodynamic down force for stability and composure at all speeds. At the front, nose directs high energy air down the sides of the body into the attractive, contoured side intakes. These efficient ducts ensure adequate airflow for critical engine components and accessories. Engine compartment airflow has been optimized for drag reduction and efficient cooling. The Q1's aerodynamics greatly reduce turbulence around the retractable side windows, affording a comfortable cockpit environment. Large charge air cooler intakes have been integrated into the body shape, with cool energized ram air gathered through carefully integrated side window (B pillar) ducts. Here, superior aerodynamic design reaps benefits in the form of engine power and efficiency. In the rear, a deep, efficient diffuser works in concert with the flat under tray to create down force on the chassis, for high speed grip and stability. Further enhancements include, fully retracting power side glass, while large side view mirrors feature remote electric adjustment. The Rossion Q1 looks outstanding today, and will maintain a timeless design in years to come.

The cockpit is comfortable and beautifully appointed, while maintaining the true, unfettered purpose of a sports car. In this high-performance road car, the interior is a careful blend of form and function. The controls are grouped in a intuitive manner, easy to manipulate and free of meddling distractions. The seats are perfectly shaped carbon fiber, with combinations of glove soft leather and luxurious but durable Alcantara. The style and practicality extends to the uniquely executed, Rossion exclusive materials of the interior trim. Interior trim options include combinations of leather, Alcantara, aluminum in tasteful color combinations, each finished with the care that becomes a world class supercar. To further enhance the driving experience, the instrument panel has been designed with all of the critical instruments grouped in front of the driver. The control layout is intuitive and logical for both touring and track use. From the position of the tilt/telescopic adjustable MOMO steering wheel to the carefully placed aluminum pedals, the Q1 has been optimized for comfortable spirited driving, and can accommodate drivers as tall as 6'5". The dash center console carries easy to adjust electric HVAC controls, and is wired to accept the latest in audio/navigation systems within easy reach of the driver. Every piece of the Q1 cockpit has been designed to enhance the overall appearance and feel of the machine.

Beneath the voluptuous coachwork remains the pure, unalloyed heart and soul of track athelete. Within the Q1's rigid tubular space frame and integrated safety roll cage, Rossion has retained road gripping kinematics, precise steering gear, premium dampers and massive AP racing brake components that give the Q1 its legendary feel, road-holding grip and performance. Throughout the chassis, premium critical components have been fitted and located to optimise performance, durability and serviceability. Some examples of the Q1's chassis development are Less visible an adjustable rear toe link, greatly simplifying rear suspension alignment. If you fancy taking your Rossion to the track, the engine cooling, brakes, suspension components and geometry are optimized for best performance.

It is suggested that the Q1 be powered by the twin turbo charged Ford/Jaguar Duratec V6 engine. This lightweight engine is controlled by a powerful engine management system carrying the latest onboard diagnostic technology. A lightweight low restriction exhaust system is also supplied with Rossion Q1 chassis, increasing the available horsepower for the suggested drivetrain to a pavement blistering 450 horsepower with more than 400 lb. ft. torque.

The performance is truly mind-boggling. With 0-60 mph times in 3.1 seconds, standing π mile in 11.3 seconds at 124 mph with the ability to circulate the skid pad at over 1.1 G on its standard equipment tires, the new Q1 offers vicious performance and easily puts the supercar in the ranks of the quickest road cars available, at any price. But performance is only part of the appeal of the Rossion. It is the extraordinary feel behind the wheel and how the Rossion couples the truly exciting classic principals of driving with modern day technology. This is a supercar that takes extraordinary care of its driver with solid handling, even at the limits of adhesion. With a stunning new design and acceleration power that leaves drivers speechless, the Q1 is the perfection of the supercar. Most surprising though, is the supple ride that is achieved through optimized chassis and suspension dynamics, combined with Rossion Automotive's lightweight design philosophy.
