RP High Performance Acquires Rossion and Mosler
Remember Warren Mosler’s Mosler MT900? Seven-liter 600 horse LS7 V8. Two-point-nine 0-60 time. Quarter-mile in the 10s. $200,000. It was an awesome car, but they weren’t exactly flying off the lot. I’ve seen three since their introduction in 2001. But, they did do a few things very well. Mosler is very, very good with lightweight materials and composite construction. Not a bad skill if you want to build a very fast car.
Well, Mosler was just bought by RP High Performance, the private company that owns the Florida-based car brand Rossion. You may be familiar with Rossion as the former sole importer of Noble supercars into the U.S., who, eventually, acquired the rights to build their own supercar based off of the Noble M400, the Rossion Q1.
The Q1 may be one of the most under appreciated cars made is the States. It boasts a 0-60 time of just 3.1 seconds, a 0-100 time of 7.7 seconds, a top speed of 189 mph, a quarter-mile time of 11.3 seconds and lateral grip of 1.1g. Basically, it’s pretty quick.
So, with the joining of Mosler and Rossion, RP High Performance, led by co-owner Ian Grunes, has everything they need to create one kick-ass new supercar (which will henceforth wear a Rossion badge). Feel free to read the meager press release for a few more details.
RP High Performance acquires Rossion and Mosler!
You may have heard some rumors, theories, what ifs.. But it is now official, RP High Performance a privately owned company has finalized the acquisition of the assets of Rossion Automotive and Mosler Automotive. The new company will operate under the Rossion brand with Ian Grunes as President. This deal brings together all the assets of both companies under one roof and management team.
The Mosler name will no longer be used and all new cars produced will carry the Rossion name. The purchase of Mosler allows Rossion to produce and sell more models of vehicles, using the resources and expertise of both companies.
Mosler has a great history based in racing and tremendous amounts of experience in using composites like carbon fiber to produce strong, lightweight and very competitive vehicles. Rossion looks forward to using this technology and expertise to introduce exciting new models in 4, 6 and 8 cylinder configurations to the Rossion line up.
