Introduced in 2010, the M600 marked a new era of development for Noble. With Peter Dyson now at the helm, the extensive development work put into the M14 & M15 prototypes by Lee Noble ahead of his departure in 2009 laid the foundations, and the latter, donating its chassis to the new car. Peter, himself an avid car collector owning both an F40 and Carrera GT; was keen to develop a new analogue supercar, devoid of modern-day interruptions like ABS, that might reduce brake feel.
With this in mind, Noble chose a Yamaha-sourced V8 power plant, complete with reworked, uprated internals and the addition of twin Garrett turbochargers by Motorkraft in the USA. Through the use of a variable boost controller, the M600 offers the driver the option of 450bhp, 550bhp or 650bhp. This power delivery can be chosen by a Ferrari Manettino-esque toggle on the dashboard ahead of the gearstick, alternating between Road, Track and Race modes and their respective power increments. Capable of 0-60 in 3.0 seconds, it'll reach a top speed of 225 mph. Mid-range acceleration is rapid too thanks to a Veyron rivalling 528bhp/ton power to weight ratio.
Receiving rave reviews at its launch by a myriad of publications, the M600 was complimented on its handling, performance and driveability. However, with a team of just 20 hand-assembling each example, it is thought that no more than 20 cars exist worldwide. Coupled with their low production numbers and the fact every car is different and commissioned, these are rarely available on the second-hand market.
After the build of the initial delivery of cars and with each car being a fully bespoke build, Noble introduced a visual carbon fibre option with these cars noted as the CarbonSport. This example is one of these builds, featuring their innovative bespoke formulation automotive ‘ink’ to tint the exterior carbon fibre- on this example in a modern take on British Racing Green. Various finer details of the car including front splitter and rear diffuser, roof and win mirrors are finished in original black carbon fibre weave.
Inside the car, the green theme continues. The black leather and Alcantara is complemented by dark green stitching and dark green carpets; the centre console shares the gloss visual carbon fibre finish in black. The car is accompanied by its bespoke Aspinal of London luggage and briefcase.
Owned new by the factory, Noble built this example specifically for its showcase on their stand at the 2017 Geneva International Motorshow, subsequently using the car as a demonstration of available options. It was shown alongside a Roadster and is unique in sharing the exposed carbon fibre engine cover design with the Roadster. The car was then registered and shown once more publicly at the London Motorshow the following year in 2018.
At the start of 2021, this M600 CarbonSport was sold by the factory having been driven on only a handful of occasions at demonstrations. As such, today this example is available with just 300 miles from new, this remarable example is still accompnined by its original fitted Aspinal luggage set (worth £6,000) and has been treated to a full body paint protection film application. Having previously sold an M600 coupe, we are delighted to be able to offer this stunning CarbonSport, available to view at our showrooms outside London immediately.
