Noble M600: Britains Answer to Ferrari


It may not be that pretty, but it sure is fast. When compared side by side with a Ferrari 458 Italia, there's little question which of the two is better eye candy. But when it comes to raw performance, the 458 may have met its match. Powered by a 4.4-liter, twin-turbocharged direct-injected Yamaha V8 with 650 hp and 604 lb-ft of torque that was originally developed for the Volvo XC90, the rear-drive Noble M600 has absolutely nothing else in common with the Volvo. Nada.

The engine may be the same, but those added turbochargers are there for a reason. Forget about modernity here, as there's no stability control, no ABS, no electronically adjustable damping, no AWD, nor shift paddles or airbags. It does have, however, a switch from a Tornado fighter jet that's used to turn on/off the low-speed traction control. What you see here is the closest thing to a modern F40, which served as the car's inspiration. Weighing only 2,886 lbs, it goes from 0 to 60 mph in 3.0 seconds and will make 100 mph in 6 seconds.
The interior is quite minimum, which is precisely the point. The M600 is not about GPS or airbags (both are non-existent), but just supercar purity. And for $360,000, it will make a superhero out of any driver.
