After a number of setbacks, Noble has announced the M600 will be launched in April.
The Noble M600 received a lot of praise when it was unveiled in 2009, but mysterious circumstances prevented the car from being launched in November of that year. Fast forward to today and Noble has revealed a production-ready version which will go on sale in April.
While the company isn't saying much, there doesn't appear to be any changes from the car that was unveiled a year and a half ago. This means power is provided by a mid-mounted twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine with 650 hp (485 kW / 659 PS) and 604 lb-ft (818 Nm) of torque. Backed up by a six-speed manual transmission, the 1250 kg (2,755 lb) supercar accelerates from 0-60 mph in 3.0 seconds and has an estimated top speed of 225 mph (362 km/h).
If that sounds a tad too powerful, the Adaptable Performance Control system can regulate engine output. In the comfort-oriented Road mode, you get 450 hp (336 kW / 456 PS), full traction control, and a "gently progressive boost curve and throttle response." If the mood strikes you, switching over to Track mode frees up an additional 150 hp (112 kW / 152 PS) and limits traction control interference. Lastly, Race mode quickens the throttle response, allows for increased wheel spin, and frees the engine to produce the full 650 hp (485 kW / 659 PS).
Other technical highlights include a tubular space frame chassis, a carbon fiber composite body, and an Alcon braking system with ventilated discs that measure 380mm front / 350mm rear.
No word on pricing or availability, but expect to learn more in the coming months.
