Noble releases first pictures of M600 supercar

Updated: 


British supercar maker Noble has released the first pictures of the production version of its new, £200,000 creation, the M600.

The car comes with a carbonfibre body, and has therefore shed some bulk over the light blue prototype that Noble previously showed off, with a kerb weight down to 1,200kg from 1,250kg.

The M600 comes with a 650bhp 4.4-litre Yamaha V8 engine that should take it to 120mph quicker than many cars get to 60mph – in just 8.9 seconds. The 0-60 dash takes just 3.5 seconds.



But this raw power is not set to destroy all hope of comfort though, with the M600 offering three 'Adaptable Performance Control' settings – Road, Track and Race. However, they only affect the boost curve, traction and throttle response, and not the suspension settings. The Road setting limits power to 450bhp, the Track to 550bhp, while Race unleashes the full 650 horses.



The car in these new pictures is just weeks away from heading to the showrooms and its potential customers, with it due to arrive at Peter Smith Sports Cars in Derby from 10-13 February.



It is set to cost £200,000, and managing director Peter Boutwood told Autocar that he has 50 potential buyers, but said: "I'm not selling any until I've let buyers drive it and see it for real."
