Noble M600: 650 Horsepower and three driving modes!By Staff


Noble M600 Convertible

Just recently, British automaker, Noble, teased us with a rendered an image of the M600 convertible seen above.  Noble M600 is one of those cars you see in your dreams. Max output of 650hp at 601 lb-ft torque, three driving modes with different horsepower set at each, light-weight carbonfiber body weghing at 2750lbs, Noble, can you please bring your M600 to the US?

Car and Driver says, Although founder Lee Noble departed the company before the M600 was launched, the new sports car still follows the classic British sports car mantra: a big frickin’ engine in a small, lightweight car. To those ends, the M600 makes use of twin turbochargers to crank a mid-mounted Yamaha-supplied 4.4-liter V-8 up from the stock 311 hp it made in the Volvo XC90. Power and traction control can be adjusted by the driver at the twist of a knob, ranging from a 450-hp “Road” mode with full traction control, to a 550-hp “Track” setting with limited traction intervention, to the full ICBM treatment: a “Race” mode in which the engine pumps out 650 hp and 604 lb-ft of torque.

Autoblog says, you’ve a great recipe for 0-60 times around three seconds or less and an estimated top speed of 225 miles per hour. Only one’s been built so far, but Noble claims it has orders for a full 50. At £200,000 a pop, the M600 should make the company a pretty penny assuming it doesn’t take them a decade to deliver.
