Noble M600 speedster unveiled

 

Video: British car-maker Noble has revealed its production-ready M600 supercar

First revealed in 2009, the latest Noble M600 version features a carbon-fibre body and mid-mounted 4.4-litre V8 engine. The twin-turbo will reportedly produce 650hp (485kW) and 604 lb-ft (818Nm) of torque.

A six-speed manual transmission will push the 1250kg supercar to an estimated top speed of 362km/h. This gives the M600 a better power to weight ratio than the Bugatti Veyron.

If you can;t handle that power, an Adaptable Performance Control system will regulate engine output. In Road mode you get 450hp (336kW), full traction control, and a "gently progressive boost curve and throttle response". If the mood takes you, switch to Track mode and free up an additional 150hp (112kW) with limited traction control. Lastly, Race mode quickens the throttle response, allows for increased wheel spin, and frees the engine to produce the full 650hp (485kW).

The interior is trimmed with plenty of carbon fibre along the centre console and door panels, and the bespoke switchgear is all custom built.

Other highlights include a tubular space frame chassis, and an Alcon braking system with ventilated discs that measure 380mm front / 350mm rear.
