      Yeah the v6 is going to be wild with two versions 3.0L and 3.5L, can't wait. I just posted some fresh info from today above. I'll try to keep this updated the best i can.

      Quote from rossion. Some new info i just learned of.

      The goal of the purpose built track day car is to build a highly competitive track day car that meets with FIA, SCCA and NASA safety requirements. We wish to provide our customers with a competitive base platform that they can be expanded upon, if they so desire, to race in any number of classes or sanctioning bodies. Eventually, we would like to see this car competing in the FIA Supersport and GT4 series. The customer can buy the car direct from Rossion and eventually from one of the Rossion Motorsport Dealers ready to take to the track and have fun with it. Since each one is hand built, the client can spec the car exactly to their requirements and needs. There is an endless list of upgrades already available.

      So why build a 2.0L 4 cylinder single turbo track car (RP120-R)? The answer is as follows:

      •A base 2.0L 4 cyl turbo car should produce between 280 and 300 wheel hp and weigh under 2000lbs.
      •Easy and cheap to maintain, repair and run.
      •Estimated Base 2.0L-T 300HP at the wheels retail price $69,500
      •The base mode should easily be able to out handle and outperform a stock Lotus Exige S
      •The car can be ordered with a drivetrain that produces 400 wheel horsepower in a 4cyl


      The car can be ordered with a 3.0L twin turbo option or a 3.5L option

      It is expected that a 3.7L twin turbo option in a north south configuration will be available within a year.

      After the 2.0L builds are done, then that's where the real fun begins with the v6.
      Wow In for updates.

      Too early in just the 2.0 development to give an estimate on the price range for the v6 versions. I'll post that info at a later time.

      So much awesome
      Look at your signature, now back to mine, now back to yours, now back to mine. Sadly, yours isn't mine, but if you stopped using your old signature and changed it to this one, it could look like mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You're on a car forum, reading this signature.

      When i first started taking the q1 to the track and they didn't know me, they signed the car up as a lotus. Most shows/car events i take the car to people wil say nice lotus. My last track event i had someone came up to me and asked me what kind of lambo is that. So yeah if you've never seen it before it's hard to make out what it is

      Had the pleasure of going to the shop and talking with Mr. Grunes last year. Lots of awesome stuff, though too bad something like this wasn't there.
