It's been a while since we have heard from Noble, the small British manufacturer that has put out some pretty impressive sports cars over the last decade. The company is currently developing a new car called the M600, and PistonHeads.com recently had the chance to interview Noble's head honcho Peter Boutwood about the upcoming model. Boutwood revealed that the M600 will be powered by a Yamaha-designed twin-turbo Volvo V8 and will have a full carbon fiber body shell. While no specific details were given regarding specifications or performance figures, the M600 promises to keep pace with the world's top supercars. It will also be absent of any driver aids like traction control and have a focus on being a pure driver's car. No word on whether the M600 will be available in the United States, but it may be imported as a rolling chassis sans engine like the current car. Thanks for the tip, pottz!

      Cool

      What's the point on disguising this car?
      It's still the same look?

      It's like when Lambo had their Diablo 6.0 test mules with only the logo's taped over.
      I'm sure that fooled nobody.

      Their current car did very well in comparison to some super (and super expensive) cars all the while only using a hopped up ford six cylinder.

      The paint is for camouflage and confusion. Put a few of these Nobles in a group on the road, and it will be very hard for a Lincoln Cougar to overtake one.

        that was freaking brilliant.

        kudos, sir.

        (I was going to make a lame Ted Nugent joke.)

      Any word on a price/neighborhood thereof?
      • 6 Years Ago
      In a world of heavy/computer-nannied supercars, Noble continues to stand out.

      Volvo?
        • 6 Years Ago
        Yamaha built Volvo branded engine.
        • 6 Years Ago
        That was my guess. Yamaha designed the V8 engine used in the S80 and XC90. Plus, Noble uses Ford engines normally, not a big stretch for them to use Volvo's V8's. Plus, no sense in Yamaha developing yet another V8 when they can use a design already in existence.

        and the pistonheads link confirmed it.

        "PH: What engine will it have?
        PB: Yamaha designed Volvo V8. With twin-turbo development by Motorkraft USA and AER in the UK"

      Noble is impressive, is like the new Lotus.
      • 6 Years Ago
      That's awesome. Isn't this the "mystery car" from a while back that people thought was a new esprit or something?
