Noble Automotive’s official sales and service dealer Super Veloce Racing (SVR) has announced plans to bring an M600 customer demonstrator car to this week’s London Motor Show.

Originally unveiled back in 2009, the Noble M600 is not exactly the new kid on the block, but with a respectable top speed of 225 mph (362 kph), it’s still definitely worthy of our attention. SVR is presenting the latest iteration of the Leicester-built supercar featuring a “Black-Red” paintwork with a naked carbon fiber roof and sitting on 20-inch forged aluminum wheels.

The newest M600 is motivated by a biturbo Yamaha 4.4-liter V8 engine pushing out a massive 662 horsepower (492 kilowatts) at 6,500 rpm and 604 pound-feet (818 newton meters) of torque. Purists will be happy to hear the eight-cylinder engine is linked to a six-speed manual gearbox which helps the supercar sprint to 62 mph (100 kph) in three and a half seconds. The hand-built machine is also seriously quick in the 0-124 mph (0-200 kph) run which takes as little as 8.9 seconds.

The 2016 Noble M600 has a dry weight of only 2,641 pounds (1,198 kilograms) thanks to a carbon fiber composite body wrapping a stainless steel tub with a tubular space frame chassis. The lightweight construction in collaboration with the strong engine has enabled an impressive power-to-weight ratio of 558 hp / ton.

A few years ago, Noble Automotive toyed with the idea of coming out with a roadster version of the M600 and even released a render to gauge customer feedback. The car was supposed to have a targa-styled roof that could be taken off and stored in the engine bay, but unfortunately the open-top M600 never made it to production.

If you are in U.K.’s capital this week, SVR’s M600 will be on display starting Thursday at the L74 stand in the Luxury Pavilion during the 2016 London Motor Show which will come to an end on Sunday.
