Noble M600 supercar finally ready for production after a decade of development


Noble has just unveiled photos of the first M600 as a production model. It has quite taken a while since 2008 to get the M600 to a production stage, which was first unveiled as a prototype in 2009.

The Noble M600 is the new supercar made by small British car manufacturer. The body is completely made of carbon fiber to provide a curb weight of 2,805 pounds when fully equipped. The Noble M600 is powered by a Volvo 4.4-liter V8 twin-turbo engine producing 650 hp and 660 lb-ft of torque. This enables the M600 to propel from 0-62 mph in less 3 seconds with top speed of 224 mph. And Noble also offers two less extreme versions of the engine, capable of 450 hp and 550, respectively.

No specific pricing has been released yet, but the M600 is estimated about £200,000, and Noble reported that there are about 50 orders for the M600 already in place. At about £200,000 ($317,380), the Noble M600 will come with standard equipment such as navigation system, Alcantara and leather interior, and a traction control system which can be completely switched off.

Deliveries of the Noble M600 will begin in April in the United Kingdom, assuming that there are no more delays such as the ones that have taken a decade to deliver this M600. Check out the video below of the 2009 M600 prototype by Top Gear.
