Each one of Noble’s M600s are hand-built and custom-made to the buyer’s specifications from what exterior color they want, to their choice of a leather, suede or Alcantara interior, to contrast or matching twin needle stitching, to seat backs that can be natural exposed carbon or painted to match the exterior. Seat panels can also be of any combination or color.
Underneath the hood is a Yamaha Judd V8 4,439 cc twin-turbo engine that puts out 662 bhp at 6,500 rpm and can reach an estimated top speed of 225 mph.
You can also get it with a fully exposed carbon fiber body, should you so desire.
Or with a removable top.
All of which will run you in the neighborhood of $400,000, give or take a few thousand dollars. (It’s a nice neighborhood.)
However, that also means that there is some wiggle room for Noble Automotive to make a slightly less expensive, yet just as badass supercar.
Enter the new M500, which was recently unveiled at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
According to Motor Authority…
Instead of the M600’s 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine sourced from Volvo, the M500 presses on with Ford power. The folks at Noble have stuffed the 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 from vehicles like the Ford GT and F-150 Raptor beneath the skin of this new machine. Backed up by a dual-clutch transmission, the M500 has 550 horsepower on tap. That’s more than enough power for a car that will likely weigh well under 3,000 pounds.
The model that’s on display at Goodwood isn’t the 100 percent finished version of the M500 that Noble will be producing, but it’s definitely going to be a supercar we’d give about anything to drive.
