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.

SVR’s Noble M600 customer demonstrator, finished in stunning ‘Black-Red’ paintwork with a bare, exposed carbon fibre roof, is due to be revealed at the show on Thursday, following an intensive build and testing process. It will be the latest car to come from the Leicester-based factory, built to SVR’s exact requirements.
As part of the Leicester-based supercar manufacturer’s brand relaunch, SVR has been appointed as the exclusive M600 sales and service channel for the UK and Europe. Working directly with the Noble Automotive factory, SVR can service the requirements of all Noble customers, past, present and future.
Noble has invested five years of extensive development in its sensational supercar, which has come to fruition in the latest generation of the M600 and M600 CarbonSport. Every car is hand-crafted by the Noble engineers to the highest standards in the industry and built to the customer’s specification.
With SVR now serving customers directly, the team is able to take this a stage further; before tailoring the exquisite supercar, prospective drivers are given hands-on experience of one of the most powerful cars in production today.
Following the test drive, completed with SVR’s professional racing driver, SVR take the time to understand the customer’s needs and use of their own M600. Following this process, SVR works with the customer to develop tailored details, ensuring every customer’s M600 is personally made to measure.
Bespoke details can go beyond unique aesthetic details and can include complex changes that are more than skin deep, to provide a driving experience like no other. SVR works directly with the Noble factory to turn customers’ wishes into reality, ensuring every car meets their exacting requirements.
At the heart of the Noble M600 and M600 CarbonSport is the proven 4.4 litre Yamaha V8 twin turbo engine, complete with a six-speed manual gearbox. With 662bhp (492kW) at 6,500rpm and 604lbft of torque at 6,800rpm and a dry weight of just 1198kg, the M600 has a power to weight ratio of 558bhp per tonne. The result is formidable performance, with 0-60mph in just 3.5 seconds, 0-120 mph in 8.9 seconds and a top speed of 225 mph (estimated).
The team at SVR specifically chose the London Motor Show as a launch platform to reveal the latest M600 to come from the Noble factory in Leicester. The event is the perfect reflection of both Noble’s and SVR’s prestige and British foundations.
SVR’s latest customer demonstrator car will be exclusively revealed to trade and media on stand L74 in the Luxury Pavilion at the London Motor Show at 15:15 on Thursday 05 May 2016. SVR’s ‘Black-Red’ Noble M600 will feature all of the model’s latest developments and will be available to view to the public during the following three show days.
