Default Noble unleashes 225 mph M600 supercar!

BREAKING: Noble unleashes 225 mph M600 supercar — Autoblog
We've seen spy shots, spy shots, and more spy shots of Noble's new M600 supercar. Now the British car builder has finally released official images and details of its latest model, complete with a Volvo-based twin-turbo V8 producing 650 horsepower. Pricing is expected to be around 200,000 (roughly $328k USD), more than twice that of previous models, and customers waiting on the now-extinct M14 and M15 can request for their deposits to be returned if they don't wish to purchase the new car.

As the high price tag suggests, the M600 brings much more to the table than past Noble models. The car is constructed from a stainless steel tub, tube skeleton and chassis, clad with carbon fiber body panels for a curb weight of just 2810 pounds. The 4.4-liter V8 (a first for Noble) has been fitted with twin Garrett turbochargers, and the driver can change between three output settings - 450, 550, or 650 horsepower - with max torque output of 618 lb-ft. Performance will be more than up to supercar standards, with 60 mph reachable in 3.0 seconds flat, 100 mph in 6.5 seconds, and a top speed of 225 mph.

As with past models, Noble aimed to make the M600 a purist driver's car. The traction control system can be completely deactivated, and there is no ESP system or anti-lock brakes. Shifting will be done old school with a six-speed manual gearbox and no paddle shifters will be offered. The M600 will make its public debut at the Goodwood Revival on September 19-21

The specs are yummy, the looks are a mix of Porche, Ferrari and the Lambo.

650bhp,now thats superb! Looks wise,might seem a tab bit bland. No paddle shifters either,something that's common in almost all the supercars these days.

The best part is that the driver can switch between 3 power settings........

Birds eye view picture reminds me of hotwheels toy cars. Although not the best looking, still anything that's powerful and has sense needs respect. Could probably have been better designed (even the interior).

The front on view looks mclarenish.But the specs are great, no ABS ESP,six speed manual,and those tasty toggle switches.Someone can have serious fun in this car.
