Sexy Sunday. The Noble M600 a hand built supercar manufactured by Noble Automotive in Leicestershire, UK. Production began in 2010 in low volume. There are three versions, the standard with a fibre glass body, the Carbon Sport with a carbon fibre body and the Speedster which is a targa top.
It is powered by a mid-engine 4.4L Yamaha built Volvo 60° V8 with twin Garret AiResearch turbochargers. The car enables three power settings: Road - 450bhp, Track - 550bhp and Race - 650bhp. All transmitted through a 6 speed manual gearbox and rear wheel drive.
Despite having an Alcon big brake kit there is no ABS. The car weighs in at 1,250kgs making it a lightweight among its competitors. Power to ratio: 558bhp per tonne.
Performance - 0-60mph: 3.0 secs. 1/4 mile: 10.9 secs. Top speed: 225mph.
It is a masterpiece! Beautiful, lightweight and powerful. With its stripped back raw nature it is often compared to the iconic Ferrari F40. It is a pure drivers car and demands respect.
When it appeared on Top Gear the Stig lapped the track in 1:17.7 beating the Pagani Zonda F Roadster and the Bugatti Veyron!
A favourite of mine and a rare beast.
