A long time ago I was cruising a highway in Spain when 2 Noble M400’s zipped past me on the Gumball 3000 event. Ever since then, I wanted a Noble. Well I picked up a Noble M400 last year and it sure was a blast. But the M400 or M12 GTO was very kit car like and its successor the M15, was not available in the USA. Well now here in the states, a company by the name of Rossion owns the rights to these cars and has been proving that the mid engine machine is no kit car at all. What once was a frame built in the UK, a body formed in South Africa, combined with a Ford engine is now a very refined machine known as the Rossion Q1.
The Rossion Q1R Track is a competition version of their street machine featuring a 2.0L single turbocharged Ecoboost engine that makes 323hp and 305ft/lbs of torque. However for those wanting more power, they can opt for the 3.0L Duratec engine that gives you a blistering 500hp and 500ft/lbs of torque. Complete with aerodynamic upgrades, a full roll cage, fire suppression system, the Q1R is the ultimate track machine. So the guys at Rossion decided to try out a better, American made seat, known as the Status Racing Ring GT-X. The FIA approved seat fits all the needs of safety for this competition car. Included with the seats is a pair of FIA approved 6 point harnesses.
We are very happy to see the Status Racing FIA approved seat in true race car and cant wait to get more updates and pictures from the Rossion team. Read more about Rossion Cars here and view all our Status Racing FIA Approved Seats here.
