Noble M600 Speedster Revealed

The Noble M600 is probably the most “old school” supercar on the market today.  It has no ABS, the brakes are barely assisted, and unlike some other cars, you can turn the traction control completely off. However, that doesn’t stop it from being one of the fastest supercars either. With a lightweight stainless steel and carbon fiber chassis, it has a 0-60 mph time of 3.0 seconds, and a 0-100 mph time of 6.5 seconds, proving that old school doesn’t mean slow. Now Noble has released an open-top version, aptly named the Speedster, so that customers can feel the air slicing off their face as they accelerate past the 220 mph mark.

The Noble M600 Speedster will retain the coupé’s Yamaha-sourced 4.4 liter twin-turbo V8 that’s revs all the way up to 7000 rpm. The M600 has a knob that allows users to choose how much boost, and consequently power, that the engine will make. The choices range from a 450 hp “Road” setting, to a 550 hp “Track” setting, to the frankly ridiculous 650 hp “Race” setting.

The prototype that was revealed at the Autosport Show this week was displayed with a flappy paddle gearbox. The Graziano automated manual that Noble has been developing is most likely the gearbox in question. Thankfully, Noble does make this an optional transmission, while as in the M600 coupé, a six speed manual will be the standard transmission for the Speedster.

The current M600 coupé is listed at £200,00, or about $357,000 CAD at current conversion rates. Moreover, the Speedster is probably going to start at £250,000, or about $446,000 CAD. While that may seem like a lot of money for a car built by a small company in England, it has the performance numbers to keep up with cars that are considerably more expensive.
