Noble is Planning an M600 Drophead

Supercar / 69 Comments

Imagine a 650-hp pure supercar without a roof. Yes, that'll be awesome.

UK-based Noble is one of the best boutique high-performance sports car builders not enough people know about. Instead of going all high-tech with features like traction and stability control, launch control, or even ABS, the M600 sticks with what many consider a pure supercar setup: a Yamaha-built 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 paired to a six-speed manual. 0-62 mph happens in about 3.2 seconds and top speed is a naughty 215 mph. Screw electronic speed limiters.

Now, there's been some talk over the past couple of years of a potential M600 Drophead. Even a prototype has been built and is currently being tested. Production, however, still hasn't received final approval. But in a new report from Dutch publication Telegraaf, Noble's managing director, Peter Boutwood, claims the company is committed to making this car a reality. What's more, Noble is even looking at the possibility of adding a paddle shift gearbox option. But back to the M600 Drophead: Boutwood states it'll perform almost identically to the fixed-roof coupe. What's still unknown is what type of roof structure will be utilized. It could simply be a removable roof panel, or perhaps a manual folding roof. Time will tell.
